Overview

My life revolves around music in all of its forms. I have studied piano since the age of 6 while singing ever since I knew how to make sound. Throughout my lifetime, I have been taught by some of the most influential teachers, and it is my goal to become one in your lifetime.

I began participating in theater at an early age. Once In high school, I had my first job as a Drama Teacher at Saltworks Young Actors Studio where I taught Improvisation, Monologues and Musical Theater to students ages 6 through 16.

I went to Point Park University where I received a BA in Musical Theater in 2006. Throughout College, I was also teaching voice and piano lessons.

As an actor, I have enjoyed many successes. In 2007, I joined the NY Public Theater’s three night, 40th anniversary concert of HAIR at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. The following summer, I was a member of the cast in a full mounted production in their 2008 Shakespeare in the Park season. Shortly after the production transferred to Broadway, the cast performed at the 2009 Tony Awards and took home the Tony for Best Revival.

During the run of Hair, I was entered into the Broadway Beauty Pageant, where male cast members from different Broadway shows compete to win the title of "Mr. Broadway". After competing in Talent and Interview; I was crowned Mr. Broadway 2009.

In 2010, I journeyed across the Atlantic with the production to perform HAIR in London’s West End. It was such a joy to have the influence of UK culture and experience the best of their Music and Theater in my time living in London.

Since moving back to America, I began teaching full time and have been a first hand witness to all of my students growing and flourishing throughout their process. It makes me so proud of them!!

I believe music has the power to be the most fun thing in the world, while at the same time, the most challenging thing. No matter what age, it's never to early or late to open your heart and mind to its fullest potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
Do you love to sing and want to perform, or just want to be more confident on karaoke night? Whichever your goals are, I can help you become more confident in your sound.
I have been teaching voice lessons and vocal coaching to students of all walks of life; from experienced Broadway performers, hip hop artists wanting to improve their melodies, to the enthusiastic youth prepping for an "Annie" audition.
Our lessons will be fun and exciting, yet challenging. All I ask for you to bring on our first lesson is a positive attitude and a readiness to use your lungs!
Levels: Beginner to Advanced

Acting
Are you planning on auditioning for a Broadway play, or just want to be more confident with public speaking? I'll have you comfortable doing classical text to modern comedy.
Levels: Beginner to Advanced

Piano
"The King of Instruments" The piano earned this title for a number of reasons including it's range, the piano covers the full spectrum of any instrument in the orchestra, it's ability to produce melody and accompaniment at the same time. It is also the largest musical instrument (excluding the pipe organ), most versatile and one of the most interesting.
I have been "tickling the ivories" since the age of 6, so I feel very comfortable and relaxed in front of the piano, and I hope that I can help you feel the same.
Levels: Beginner to Intermediate

Trumpet
How exciting is the Trumpet? Throughout history, Trumpets have been playing rousing tunes announcing Kings and Queens. Some of the first Trumpets were found in King Tut's tomb date from about 1500 BC!
I have been playing the Trumpet since grade school. Like all brass instruments, the trumpet's sound starts with the player's lips buzzing together into a mouthpiece.
Levels: Beginner to Intermediate

French Horn
What a unique piece of brass! The French Horn is the only brass instrument played with the left hand while your right hand resides inside the bell to contour your sound.
Levels: Beginner to Intermediate

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have an Upright Piano in my living room with plenty of seating for parents/guardians. I also have a spare room and patio in case one would like some privacy to work or read.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my student to have a Piano or a full electronic keyboard for proper Piano or Voice lessons, and a Trumpet or French Horn for those lessons respectively.

*** Specialties ***
I am a very earnest, physical, character actor with a great sense of comedic timing. I live for anything theatrical and I hope that I can share all the joys it brings me with you.

I have a vast singing range from bass’ low D, high A belt, to a B6 in my falsetto. I have shaped my voice through almost a dozen voice teachers since the time my voice changed from boy to young man and now I feel confident to sing in styles from Traditional and Contemporary Broadway, to Pop and Rock. I hope that I can help you gain the confidence and strength to conquer multiple styles.

I have been playing the Trumpet, French Horn and Piano since grade school. From Honors bands to Marching bands, the excitement from a band is tap-your-foot contagious!

Anthony is one the most knowledgeable and courteous persons I have ever known his knowledge and patience to teach combined with his experience is the best key for anyone looking to succeed in this business. I personally think that there is not enough space for me to express how thankful I am with Anthony.
