I passionately teach a wide variety of genres in an encouraging, calm and creativity manner. I teach music history and assign listening assignments. I can also teach any level and any age.

Give student encouragement and has patience.
My sessions with Tony really helped me open up as a pianist and took my improvisation skills to the next level!
Tony made learning piano so much fun for me! He really broke down every lesson step by step and motivated me. I felt very capable when doing some of the exercises he assigned rather than anxious that I wouldn’t do them correctly. His supportive teaching style makes it so that developing is much easier. I also really appreciated him helping me to practice as that’s something I’ve never been taught before by a musical teacher. He gave me different methods for working/ relaxing my hand muscles and also increasing dexterity and agility. This made it much easier to catch on to the exercises we did in the lessons.
Toni is passionate about music and his enthusiasm spreads to his students. He is attuned to the soul of the music as well as the precision of the notes. He loves piano and people and this is apparent each lesson. He provides thorough lessons and assignments between classes. He’s a one of a kind superstar teacher.

I would recommend students to ask questions.
Students should think about what level they want to get to in playing and I will present a step by step plan to get there.
