I am a very mature(read old) student and I had been wanting to learn to play the trombone. The catch was that I had never taken lessons and could not read music. Pasquale was absolutely unflapped by this. He had the patience of a saint, had the ability to make me feel comfortable and was 1000% encouraging in my quest. Oh and also by the way...he knows his stuff and is gifted in his ability to teach it in a way that I could understand and be comfortable. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!!!
Tony
My son was having struggling with the French horn and school instruction wasn't enough to help him get ahead. Pasquale helped him master his assignments as well as helped him with his technique and being more consistent with his notes. Definitely recommend Pasquale for lessons.

Mr. Anthony is a really good brass instructor. He has been helping me improve with my lip slurs and has helped my 12 major scales. He also makes learning the trumpet fun. Highly recommend
Carla J.
Anthony is a skilled musician that has wonderful talent in teaching people (of all ages). He is always kind about how he professes but also takes teaching seriously. he has an amazing capacity of patience and is willing to work with a student until they are comfortable and confident in their skill. He has taught me things from bass clef to crochet. His sense of humor makes his lessons light and easy to let the information sink in. This instructor works well with anyone and has passion, pride, and genuinely loves what he does. A++++++++++++++

"Jeremy has been great in relating to my junior high age son playing tuba. Developing a rapport via online lessons was a natural progression for the YouTube generation. Jeremy was encouraging and helped develop and grow technical skills to move from last chair to first chair and promoted to next band in the next semester! The ease and flexibility in scheduling allows him to continue in his lessons through busy concert seasons. Looking forward to adding his younger brother to the lesson with Jeremy soon!"
