Anthony is an excellent instructor. During our COVID-19 shutdown, I wanted my son to continue learning the trombone. I happened on the takelessons website and it was the best experience. Even though our lessons were virtual, it felt like my son was being taught in person. Anthony works well with children and pays attention to detail. After one session, I could hear a difference in my sons sound. He did an excellent job of teaching notes, scales, and techniques. If you need lessons, give Anthony a try.

From my first lesson, Anthony had me doing a full scale. Anthony really makes you feel comfortable, even for an old beginner such as myself. His approach is very warm, and inviting. I am glad I settled in finding Anthony, and I look forward to all of my lessons upcoming.

I really enjoyed my class with Anthony. I am a beginner on the saxophone. Being a beginner, I was a bit intimidated before the class. However, all intimidation was gone once Anthony logged on and began to teach. He was very patient and his lessons are engaging. He came to the lesson prepared (not all teachers do). He is definitely knowledgable and a pro in the subject area and his teaching style is very effective. I came away from the lesson feeling like I really learned a lot. Thanks to Anthony, I feel like I will definitely be able to master my instrument. I highly recommend him.

Great first lesson. I was nervous about my son taking lessons online, but right off the bat, the nerves went away. Anthony was excellent. Even in a virtual world, he paid attention to detail and noticed that my child's trombone slide became loose. He gave my son a tip on how to keep that from happening. While being downstairs I heard a song that my son has previously played, and in just 45 mins, my son sounded better than before. Looking forward to our next lesson and seeing how my son progresses .

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

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++++++++++++++
