From pop music to rock to jazz and classical piano I approach teaching from the standpoint of each student's individual interests. I teach students of all ages and find ways to make lessons entertaining while also being educational, incorporating both technique and theory into each lesson. I'll work directly with you to develop a curriculum that will achieve your musical goals.
About MrTony R

Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I've been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during my teens, performing professionally and have had the honor of performing with such nationally known musicians as Billy Bang (legendary fiddle player), Willy Calhoun (Living Colour), Vassar Clements Band, Tom Chapin, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles, and Michael Powers. In high school, I enrolled in an Honors Musicianship class at the RiverDell, NJ, Senior High where I learned to read scores, conduct and identify multiple instruments, sight read, orchestrate scores and compose music. Following my true passion, I enrolled in the American Institute of Guitar (AIG), studying under the most sought after Flamenco guitar teacher for the past 20 years, Dennis Koster (author of Keys to Flamenco Guitar) and met the legendary Sabicas in person. At the same time, I began training in the Blues, educating myself on various styles and from various teachers, eventually going all the way to the tracks.

My daughter finds Mr Tony to be very patient, calm and enthusiastic about her piano playing. "He never gives up on me," she says. He mixes classical with fun music from her favorite, Taylor Swift. Whenever there has been a scheduling conflict he is very flexible and open to makeup sessions. We enjoy his style of piano reaching and have been very pleased so far.

Private Studio
I've been teaching -- acoustic, electric, and bass guitar; piano; and vocals – for approximately 20 years. Over the past 10 years, I've moved my studio online and have had great success teaching students from my virtual classroom. Providing applicable points of motivation and obtainable objectives together with a student's preferred musical style to encourage growth. For Flamenco students, I encourage corresponding study in a second genre of music to add to one’s growth. It is imperative to me that students learn in a fun, relaxed environment and are provided with an all-encompassing education.
