Super nice guy, patient. I would've given it a 5 but we spent most of our time trying to figure out my hardware. Totally not his fault, I'm hoping he does some research about the hardware before or next lesson. I would recommend Tony for sure.

Great start for our 7 yo grandson. Tony immediately appealed to his musical interests, and prepared him to learn his first song next lesson.

Tony is seriously the best music teacher I have EVER had. He is so supportive, understanding, and knowledgeable. I have learned more about music theory in the past few months that I have taken lessons with Tony than I have across a whole 5 years. The way he explains all of the new concepts is very understandable and his encouraging nature makes you feel comfortable even if you make a mistake. He also lets you learn songs that you actually want to play, making the lessons even more enjoyable. Overall, Tony has truly helped me improve and actually makes me want to practice during my free time to become a better musician. Thank you Tony!

Tony creates a class just for me. Each class adds another layer to what I have already learned. I am progressing faster than I expected.

First class I had with Tony was great! I certainly recommend him for other people to want to play the piano. He is a good instructor to help people execute their goals.

Helpful and nice. I like that Tony is challenging me in a friendly way to step out of my comfort zone.

Tony has been a wonderful guitar and singing teacher, and has helped me learn new techniques and improve the skills I already had in just a few weeks! He has a diverse skill set (that I am only scraping the surface of), is very reassuring, and reminds me to find the joy in music. I think he would be a great fit for any type of guitar player/singer regardless of genre or age. His lessons feel perfectly tailored for the type of musician that I want to be.

Tony has a really good ear and easily picks up my areas to work on.

He also tailors my lessons around developing strong points while strengthening weak points.

It has only been 2/3 weeks and I can already feel and hear a lot of improvement.

Thanks Tony!

Had a great first lesson with Tony. He's a super relaxed teacher and starts the lesson naturally, with good pacing. Would definitely recommend to anyone just starting out.

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 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.
