Alonzo Ellison grew up in the small town of Cameron, Texas. From a young age he was fascinated with music and the joy it brought him. At the age of eleven Alonzo picked up a trumpet. This marked a new beginning to a new life. The Trumpet grew on Alonzo and he began to fall in love with it dearly, practicing every day in hopes of becoming a good musician. This earned him the honor of being an All-State musician three years in a row in high school. He places first for All State Jazz in 2007, made the All State symphonic band in 2008, and was 2nd for All State Jazz in 2009.
At the age of 18, Alonzo found another passion -- being an educator to anyone willing to learn. He believes that everyone is forever a student, and that we can all learn from each other. Alonzo has been a music instructor at several Texas public schools.
He currently performs with various artists in the Austin area -- playing in clubs, festivals, weddings and other events.
