talented musician and inspiring teacher

Trevor has been my sax teacher for more than two years. He is both fun and inspiring. I am definitely a better musician because of my lessons with him.

Trevor makes me work hard but understands when I need the lesson to slow down. My favorite part of each lesson is when we get to play the music together.

About Tony

I received my first guitar eighteen years ago and have been playing seriously for thirteen. Seven of these years I have been teaching a variety of students from different skill levels and ages. Currently I teach at Double Bar Music in Westport, MA Mondays and Fridays and will be directly a guitar camp this summer at the South Dartmouth YMCA. I also provide in-home lessons seven days a week. Throughout the years, I have always discovered more artists that capture my attention and infused their playing into my own to create a very broad and varied musical style. In addition to writing and performing my own material I have also worked in ensembles and backing bands that played genres such as blues, rock, jazz, metal, funk, pop, country, reggae, hip-hop, and more. Music is what I love and to ...
