About Tony N.

Hi! My name is Tony, and I'm a music educator passionate about giving my students the skills to play music and the tools to take charge of their learning. I have been teaching guitar, piano, voice, music production, and songwriting for 10 years and have worked with pre-school aged kids, teens, and adults to help them find their voice through music.

I'm someone who loves using music to empower myself and others to express themselves. When not teaching, I'm a working singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

My experience with Tony has been excellent. I have tried learning guitar for a few years now and it wasn't until I started my lessons with Tony that my skills have drastically improved. Tony listens to what you want out of each lesson and constructs an effective lesson plan to accomplish those goals. I eagerly look forward to my lesson every week.

Tony is more than a good musician. Anyone can play chords or build a song (both of which he does excellently), but Tony goes beyond and really listens to you to bring your ideas to life. His encouragement and genuine care for both storytelling and the craft of songwriting make him an exceptional teacher.

Tony is a very talented music producer. Through his explanations of sound design and melodic arrangments he has helped me create dynamic instumentals and unique vocal textures. Would definitely recommend him!

I had been struggling with singing for many years and was about to give up on it altogether, until I met Tony! Working with him has noticeably improved the way I use my voice and I am always excited to learn more from him.

Tony is a great songwriting teacher! His lesson plans are extremely organized, easy to understand, and very engaging. He is very creative and great at explaining and simplifying the fundamental aspects of songs with detailed examples.

Tony is an excellent piano and guitar instructor. He answers all my questions and is extremely thorough in his explanations. Super good vibes and I feel very comfortable with him as my instructor. He's also flexible, punctual and responsive - which is super important for a busy individual like myself. If you're searching for an instructor, look no further! I highly recommend him.
