I love sharing my passion for music with my students. They describe me as a Fun, Patient, Punctual, and Organized teacher.
I hold a B.A. degrees in Music and Spanish from San Jose State University, and have 15 years experience in teaching and performing.
My musical palette encompasses Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Symphonic, Opera, Reggae, Funk, Rock, R&B.
I am very fortunate to have shared the stage with many masters in the Jazz and Afro-Cuban/Salsa scenes, notably: Karl Perazzo and Jeff Cressman (of Santana), Louie Romero (Hector Lavoe and Wille Colon) Wayne Wallace (Wayne Wallace Quintet) the famous salsa vocalist Tito Nieves, Cuban-born vocalist Fito Reinoso,
legendary Bolivian charango player Eddy Navia, Bolivian guitarist Gabriel Navia, Eric Rangel y su Orquesta America, Julio Bravo y su Orquesta Salsabor, and the Pacific Mambo Orchestra.
Besides music, I enjoy salsa dancing. I have been dancing for ten years and have been teaching salsa dancing for three years. I also believe in furthering my communication skills. I belong to my local public speaking Toastmaster club for 2 years. I also enjoy art very much and have been drawing as a hobby for three years.

As a teacher, my years of experience and study with a wide array of teachers has given me a unique perspective on the process of music making and how everyone can benefit from the act of music making. As a professional musician with a diverse background, I have years of performance and teaching experience to offer my students and to help them overcome any musical difficulties with ease.
Positions in professional orchestras I have held include Principal Bass with the Amedeus Operenensemble in Salzburg, Austria, Assistant Principal Bass with the Northern Symphony Orchestra (MN) and St. Peter's Chamber Orchestra (Redwood City, CA) as well as with the Boise Philharmonic. I am also an avid chamber musician, composer and improvisor, a founding member of the San Francisco Bass Quartet and the Argentine Tango group Tangonero. I have also worked as a session player at San Francisco's Hyde Street Studios and recently collaborated with Third Eye Blind and Jherek Bischoff.
I studied the double bass at the University of MN with Christopher Brown of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and earned my B.M. at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music studying with Scott Pingel and Steve Tramontozzi of the San Francisco Symphony.
I have also studied electric bass with Steve Hanson, and drum set with Pete Hennig and Dan Rheinhardt.

My name is Tony M., also known as Dr. P. As an expert in Leadership, Teaching and Learning, I believe that Learning is best accomplished when the relationship between Student and Teacher is mutually interactive and FUN! I believe that in order to be the best resource for any student I must recognize and understand not only students' needs and desires but also know and understand each individual student. These objectives help me to focus on exactly what students want to learn and bring out the best in students' performance and production.

Jeff M. was a vagabond who was born in the Ortiz Mountains, learned to crawl over the lush hills of Marin, skipped over the chili fields in New Mexico, and walked through the deserts of Arizona, to settle back into Marin for a while. It was in Arizona where he found his purpose in life while playing bass in a surf-jazz-rock band on the Hopi reservation. He eventually came back out of the desert wiser, stronger… eclectic. Bass is where he hangs his hat. Literally sometimes. He’s also been known to pick up a guitar from time to time to sing a song or two. Rockabilly, Honky-Tonk, Surf, Swing, Metal, and Jazz. – “It’s all good!”

I recently graduated from the Master's of Music program at the San Francisco Conservatory of music. I've played with many orchestras in the bay area including the Berkeley Symphony, Napa Valley Symphony, Stockton Symphony, and more. In my undergrad, most of my playing was in jazz. I've toured Europe (Italy, Switzerland, and France) with a big band in 2007, and performed at Yoshi's. I began on the electric bass in high school, playing in bands and everything from the Beatles to Tool. I also picked up some electric guitar. I've taught double bass annually at La Honda Music Camp as a double bass counselor, and look forward to taking on many students and sharing what I've learned, and what I will continue to learn with them!
