Antonio was an amazing piano teacher for all 3 of my boys. Each was at a different level and had a very different learning style. Antonio adapted to each of their needs to make their lessons fun and to excel them each to the best of their ability. I would recommend Antonio in a heartbeat.

Antonio is a versatile and and passionate teacher. He will infect you with his love of piano and music. My husband, 8 year-old daughter, and I have all taken lessons with Antonio, and together we have studied classical, pop, jazz and chamber music. I highly recommend him as a teacher. He will take your ability and enjoyment to a higher level than you thought possible!

Our first lesson was great, my son was able to clearly understand Antonio's teaching skills. We look forward to many lessons to come.

Antonio has been the only teacher to captivate my 8 y/o son in piano. He is an excellent teacher and reads his students well. He makes his teaching fun and interesting, making music games and movement to keep things interesting for the child. He is always on time and very professional. I highly recommend him.
