Hi!

I’ve been playing guitar for 10 years, starting from a shredhead, evolving to a jazzboy, and ending up as a who knows what. I got my BS in Contemporary Music Studies at SUNY New Paltz studying with Mark Dziuba, one of the baddest dudes around.

I’ve played in bands ranging from funk, straight-ahead and gypsy jazz to indie and surf rock. When it comes to music my mind is totally open; If you’re interested in it, I am interested.

About Tony C.

Hi! I'm Tony. I am a guitarist and teacher with 10+ years of experience performing in jazz, rock, and funk groups, producing electronic music, and teaching.

My goal as a teacher is to create a relaxing and fun environment where we can unlock the latent musical ability that we all have. I focus just as much on teaching an instrument as I do on teaching music as a whole. My specialty is in instilling a growth mindset that my students can carry over to all parts of their life.

I custom design my curriculums around my students' musical interests and goals while also challenging their tastes and stimulating their curiosity.nce 2006

Working from home for the past 8 months has made me stir-crazy. I decided I needed a hobby. I had an old acoustic guitar that was gathering dust. I had tried to learn to play on my own years ago by reading a book, but gave up quickly. It didnt take long to realize that playing the guitar requires hand manipulations that are at times completely foreign to the human body. Tony pretty much showed me that I was taking the wrong approach from the start. What I appreciated the most is that Tony was able to guide me to getting to a point in just a couple of sessions where I could actually play something recognizable. Tony is a nice guy, very knowledgeable, respectful, and PATIENT (thank god).
