    When I came to Tony I had been playing for many years, but had stagnated and fallen into a pattern of playing the same things on repeat. After only a few months with him I already have a better understanding of the fretboard, how to link chords and scales all over the neck and how to apply that to different chord progressions. Although Tony’s lessons have involved theory, it has helped me in the only place where it really counts - to become a better player. Thanks Tony - you've opened up a whole new world of making music for me!

    If you are ready to put some time and effort in with Tony, then you will surpass any level of playing you thought you would ever do.

    My son (12 yrs) started with Tony about 2 years ago. None of his previous teachers imparted the same technical excellence. Connor's guitar playing has reached another level under Tony's tutelage - not only because of the tremendous skill he brings to the table, but also through exposure to the many different musical genres Tony plays. Connor has been exposed to everything from folk, to classical, to Spanish and I have watched him grow musically as a result.

    Tony is a bona-fide Maestro, with "skills for days", and an encyclopedia of knowledge. I look forward to every lesson. My growth as a guitarist, and, a MUSICIAN is a very satisfying result of Tony's skill as a teacher. Thank you, Tony!
