Lorenzo Colombo- Available Tues, Wed & Thurs

Brief History -

Hi, I’m Lorenzo Colombo, originally from Italy. I was born in Milan where I graduated in saxophone at the International Music Academy. Working in jazz, rock, fusion, funky and folk bands I developed my skills, touring Europe and attending many music festivals. During the years at the Academy I started discovering my passion for writing music, so while I was working as a musician I attended the Classical Music Academy for composition. Inspired by one of my teachers in particular (M° Fabio Jegher) I began my activity as a music teacher in a few schools around Milan.
In 2005 I started working as a composer for Bluescore Entertainment, a company providing music for long and short films, as well as for television and radio programs.
When I arrived in Australia in 2008 I worked as a musician for live gigs and recording sessions, as an arranger and a sound engineer. I am also a qualified flute teacher.

Teaching Philosophy -

Music is a language and learning how to play music means learning how to use it to express yourself with an instrument. The most important thing in music is knowing what you want to say and understanding how to do it, and the more you have fun the faster you can learn. In everyone of us there’s a little voice telling stories in our own, personal, particular way. If we pay enough attention and we can find the time to listen we can discover how to find our melodies or to write our songs. That’s why lessons will be not just about your instrument, but also about theory, harmony and composition splitting giant steps into little tiny steps that are easy to follow.
