Want to learn play saxophone? I'm Utrecht based saxophone teacher Ilia Lumbroso. I offer one-on-one sax lessons in my home in Kockengen where I have all the equipement needed (keyboard, amps, bass, saxes, CDs...) to have all the different options for playing with music. Enjoy free parking, tea or coffee
What I find so great about our instrument...each saxophone player can have his/her own personal sound. While playing I'm always focussed on creating the most expressive, unique and intense sound! I'm curious to hear your's and if you need.. I'll have plenty of tips and tricks.
Jazz - Funk - Pop - Classical
My private saxophone classes are open to adults and teenagers. All levels welcome and any style possible. Any style possible, including classical, jazz, funk and popular music. Learn to improvise and reading music.

Online Saxophone Lessons
I also offer fun, comprehensive and motivating online saxophone lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced. Live feedback and instructions! Book a trial lesson or buy & try the 3 lesson Starter's Package!
From the first sax lesson we focus on developing a good sound and musicality in a nice and spontaneous way. You'll learn easily the basics of body posture, handling the instrument, breathing technique, embouchure, finger technique, rythm and reading music.
Improvisation - Freedom with Rules
Of course improvisation is important to jazz and pop musicians. You will learn the technique to create your own music and melodies, so you will be free to play on any music that you love, without limits.
Sax on the Beach?
To play music together with others is really important. That's why I accompany the lesson with piano, saxophone, bas guitar or with the use of CD.
Besides individual sax lessons, I organize also ensemble music courses where students can play together, combining the entire range of saxophones, from soprano to baritone.
