For the past several months I have been receiving lessons from Toni. His years of experience have made it possible for him to easily determine my needs and customize my lessons accordingly. I 've spent my life as a student and a teacher and a life long passion for music. As a mature individual in my 90]s it gives me great pleasure to know that I am still able to learn and Toni surprises me with so much I really didn't know. I look forward each week to my lesson as I never know what it will entail but I do know that it will be fun and that I will learn something

My third lesson was all about drawing pictures and taking notes as Tony went through the exact steps I needed to edit my photos in Photoshop and PS Lightroom when I don't have Tony standing there guiding me. After explaining what I wanted to do, he was able to just show me the steps needed. In other words, he's a Pro at Photoshop. Like I said before, I can't ask for a better teacher and coach than Tony.

Tony is awesome! He has extensive knowledge of photography, cameras, lenses, lighting, photoshop and has his own studio right in his house. I couldn't ask for a better or more cooperative teacher. Will be returning this week for my second followup appointment.

My lessons went great, just what I was looking for! Tony was very professional & knowledgeable. He customized our class time to my needs, not only instructing me in photo editing but with computer navigation which is so important in this digital age! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help to take their photography to the next level!

When you first meet Tony you sense immediately his passion and love for music; this comes through in his teaching style and attitude. Our 2 daughters (ages 13 and 11) have been taking lessons from Tony for about 3 months and we are definitely seeing improvements in their abilities. He has a knack for challenging them without them really knowing that's what he's doing--he pushes (gently) on them to reach their potential. Our girls enjoy taking lessons from Tony and look forward to seeing him each week, they practice without being asked (most days) and look forward to learning more interesting and challenging music. I would absolutely recommend Tony as an instructor for children or adults.
