Hailing from New York, Anthony picked up his first pair of sticks at the ripe young age of 9. After high school, he attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts where Anthony was immersed in music for three years before graduating in 2016.

Anthony has studied with teachers such as Neal Smith, Bob Gullotti, Tony ‘Thunder’ Smith, Casey Scheuerell and Gustavo Agatiello during his time at Berklee and was also greatly influenced by classes and conversations with Ralph Peterson jr, Steve Wilkes and John Pierce.These people have shaped Anthony’s musicianship and professionalism, giving him the right tools for just about any musical situation.

My son Logan took drum lessons in New York with Anthony and my son loved him. Anthony was dedicated, patient, and took the time to follow up with Logan to ensure he was understanding. You could really tell that Anthony loved teaching and working with kids. It was a real shame that he moved back to Nashville.

Awesome lessons from Anthony. He took the time to customize a drumming lesson plan that fit my schedule and ability. I improved at the pace I was able to commit to.

Anthony has been wonderful with my son. His patience and friendliness eases my son's nerves. Not only is he wonderful with my son he is very personable with us. Anthony is a very knowledgeable percussionist which is evident when we hear him teach and explain things to my son. My son thinks he is very cool. I would recommend Anthony as a music instructor to people of all ages!!
