Great start. Learned how to read the base notes. And immediate hands on practice. 😃
My first meeting with Tony, & I feel confident that Tony will help me in getting my voice back. I was impressed with his knowledge & his absorption into his music. Looking forward to more lessons & being able to sing the way I used to.
After my first meeting with Tony I really believe I'm going to be able to learn to play the guitar after all of these years.
Tony is a skilled maestro that taught me something new with every lesson. He opened my musical perspective by showing me the fundamentals of what it means to be musically inclined and gave me the tools to further my education on my own.
Tony is a great teacher and my daughter loves her lessons with him...very personable and accommodating..We highly recommend him.. she has learned so much already and most important is she is gaining a lot of confidence.
Mr. Mitri share his expertise in photography with my daughter very patiently and professionally. If we choose to take more lessons, we will choose to go with Mr. Mitri again.
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+ Read More
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.+ Read More
Jazmine was impressed and has followed her exercises daily. Good preliminary instruction.
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.+ Read More
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!+ Read More
Tony Really went out his way to help me on my frist class. Have to say if you want learn about taken Photos, Lightroom, or Photoshop... This is the guy to ask!
Great first lesson. I'm excited.
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.+ Read More
Tony has been teaching my 8 year old grand-daughter, Nevea, for about 6 months. Tony knows how to effectively teach younger children and has the patience needed to know the correct learning pace that each student can deal with. Nevea loves it when Tony will occasionally accompany her with the guitar. I sit in on most of the lessons and enjoy listening to the interaction between teacher and student.
I would recommend Tony as a teacher for students of any age.
Tony is great! He helped expand my range and over come the enormous amount of stage fright I battled for years in just a small amount of time. His lessons helped establish my music on a more professional level and broadened my picture of the music industry. I wouldn't recommend anybody else! He is very motivating and inspirational, and you will definitely grow through his lessons.+ Read More
Mr. Tony has taught two of my children, one took singing lessons and the other took piano and music composition/songwriting lessons. He is a remarkable teacher. I saw both of my children learn a great deal and progress incredibly quickly under his expert direction and instruction. He is patient but driven and pushes his students to excel, getting great results. He also makes learning fun, so they enjoy learning as they go which helps keep them motivated. I would highly recommend Tony for anyone interested in learning more about music or for any type of music lessons. He is an exceptional teacher.+ Read More
I want to express to people everything that Tony has done for me: He gave me an opportunity that I would call "once in a lifetime". He gave me a chance to pursue my dream and as of right now, my dream is falling into place. Tony has always been available for me when needed, anytime I need to record or work with new material. He always has time and he's also perfected my music and made it better than I ever thought it would be. Thank you for making my dream come true.+ Read More
Tony has renewed in me a love of music that had been soured by previous experience. He has an uncanny ability to unlock the sounds I have in my head and bring them to life. Again, reality imitates art.
