Alonzo's musical journey began at the age of 8, singing and learning the piano until finally settling on the trumpet by age 10. He developed an extremely personal relationship with music, spending hours practicing and crafting a unique musical personality.
Alonzo is classically trained in trumpet pedagogy and has participated in wind ensembles, symphonic orchestras, pit orchestras, marching band, big bands, and small jazz ensembles. At age 11 he formed his own jazz sextet and has been performing professionally ever since. Alonzo spent two years at the historic Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz where he connected with other talented young professionals and, more importantly, gained life-long friends and mentors.
In the fall of 2014, he attended Berklee College of Music on a full-tuition scholarship where he obtained a Bachelor's of Music degree in Professional Music with concentrations in Jazz Composition and Performance
