Take classical guitar lessons with a seasoned, award-winning and professional classical guitarist! I am an active performer throughout the country as a soloist and member of the Pacific Guitar Ensemble alongside David Tanenbaum and Peppino D'Agostino. I graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and hold bachelor's, master's, and professional studies diplomas. I am currently the classical guitar faculty at the top rated charter Oakland School for the Arts.
I welcome students at any age or skill level! I focus on classical guitar playing but can also provide lessons in other styles.
I am very passionate about music and take joy in teaching this art to kids and adults! I have been teaching classical guitar for over ten years and take great enthusiasm in it. I focus on proper technique, which will allow the guitarist to play relaxed and with ease, musicality, which is such an essential part of classical guitar music, as well as having a beautiful sound. I will provide you with a good approach to guitar playing, including exercises to strengthen your technique and ways to practice in order to build a solid playing foundation. I am patient, but I will also challenge my students to progress naturally.
Tony is a fantastic teacher! His instruction is very clear and he is really patient with this students.
My daughter is thrilled to be studying with him and always looks forward to her lessons. Tony is very personable and pleasant to work with.
If you are serious about classical guitar and would like to develop proper technique -- then I would *highly* recommend Tony. He is an expert in his field and loves his instrument!
I've had two guitar instructors prior to working with Tony. He is by far the best. Not only is he passionate about music and classical guitar, I find him to be a patient instructor who listens and understands his students needs. He has an in-depth knowledge of music theory, a willingness to use various approaches based on student needs, and a talent for playing the guitar at a level which continually inspires you keep learning.+ Read More
