Teaching since: September 1995
Last sign in: Yesterday


I was originally trained on Saxophone, Voice and basic piano skills at the Chicago Conservatory of Music. My professional experience has been working as a traveling house band for the Ted Allen Agency in Chicago as well as numerous types of classic rock, fusion rock, jazz, jazz standards and fusion jazz and wedding bands. I'm currently studying at Miracosta Community College to complete my music degree to advance to a 4 year University in Music Education. I have been requested to play baritone sax in the Miracosta Oceanside Jazz Orchestra (MOJO) and also play with the Collective a smaller jazz ensemble taught by Steve Torok. This year I have been teaching before and after school music classes with children from 8 to 13. Our focus has been elementary training incorporating basic music theory, harmony and rhythm as well as instruments such as clarinet and flute as well as sax.

· Piano · In home Tony has been great with my kids, ages 8 and 10, for learning piano. He is very knowledgeable and makes it fun for them :)

· Saxophone · In home Tony is terrific. He's full of enthusiasm for the saxophone and brings a great deal of encouragement and positivity needed when you're starting out. He's also very capable of adjusting his teaching style to reflect the interests and needs of the student. For example, I've got some music reading skill, so Tony adjusted the lessons to reflect that. He and I txt when I have a question during the week. He's always encouraging.

· Singing · In studio Tony is such a patient, fun instructor. I am mainly a pianist and wanted to work on my vocal fundamentals and get my singing to a better level. His expertise has really helped me start achieving my goals. I met him in college last year in Jazz band, and that man can really blow on saxophone as well! Thank you for all your help!
