Hi, there! My name is Tony, and I'm a guitarist & clarinetist originally from D.C. I graduated from Berklee College of Music (Magna Cum Laude) with a Bachelor of Music in Performance, where I was a recipient of the WST and the BAS Scholarship. I've toured internationally and played at clubs all over the U.S.
On guitar, my teachers have included Mick Goodrick & Richie Hart. I have studied jazz improvisation with Hal Crook & Ed Tomassi. On clarinet, I studied under Kenneth Lee, who was a student of the Juilliard school under Leon Russianoff.
My specialties are in classical, jazz, blues, & pop/rock. A long-time student of mine will have strong knowledge of the fretboard, chords, music theory, a repertoire of tunes, and proficiency in different idioms.
It is important that my students understand the fundamentals really well. In addition to that, proper technique, solid repertoire, reading, and improvisation will be studied.
