Antonia is a professional trumpet player, vocalist, and songwriter in the Los Angeles area.
Starting violin at age 5, Antonia quickly developed a passion for music. Captivated by the raw power and tone of brass instruments, she traded in her violin for a trumpet at age 10.
When Antonia was only sixteen years old, she began performing professionally - fronting several local big bands as lead vocalist, as well as sitting in the trumpet section. Last summer, she was given the honor of playing at The Library of Congress with one of her big bands.
Antonia makes weekly appearances with local music groups ranging from jazz and funk music to rock, R&B, and rap. Antonia has a solo project of her original material under the name The Runtime. Her debut EP is in progress.
Today was Eli's first trumpet lesson with Antonia. Antonia was super patient and helped him with some difficulties he was having.
Antonia is a gifted and kind teacher. She gave my 15 year old singing lessons. My daughter was very hesitant at first but after the first day that subsided. Antonia is practical with praise and instilled the realistic aspect of practice and hard work needed to succeed. I saw my daughter go from a kid who would never sing in front of people to one who practiced drills, learned music and performed for the first time in front of an audience with confidence and poise. I cannot thank Antonia enough for her kindness, patience and real approach to teaching.+ Read More
