About this pro

I am a professional violinist performer, composer and recording artist and teacher. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Performance/Composition.
I'm originally classically trained and also have a strong background in improvisation, which means that I love playing some Bach as well as some jazz or some Beyonce, Led Zeppelin...! 
I've been added to the Cirque Du Soleil official artist database and played with various great artists such as Jacob Collier, Wang Lee Hom, Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy video game composer), Terrence Blanchard... I also played strings tracks for Flo Rida (Warner/Atlantic Records), France in 2014.
I'm the recipient of the Honorable Mention from the Tribecca Composition Competition representing MA in 2017 as well as the Honorable Mention from the MTNA Composition Competition representing MA in 2016.
I'm currently working in different projects (jazz, pop, classical rock), and is the leader of 2BIRDS BAND, a funk/rock string based band. This band had tours, and gave various shows and clinics in France, Canada and the American East Coast (Boston, NY).
I've been teaching music for 3 years now. I love sharing my experience and expertise with students and learn from them. My goal is to get the best from my students, with patience, care and humour, so that they become the best they can be as musicians and human beings! I'm a pretty eclectic artist and love to discover things with my student, regardless their age, level and background! All musics are sisters and it's always a pleasure to teach on one hand classical music and on the other hand, jazz harmony and improvisation as well as rock, pop, hip hop tunes!

    Whether you're stressed out over a performance, or tired of shredding on the violin with little to no improvement, Tony's the guy. He gave me a new outlook on violin playing which not only improved my technique, but also my attitude towards practicing and performing as well. I've only had two classes with him so far, hence the four stars. Inspiring and fun guy.

    Tony is a great musician, educator, and artist. His charisma and fun, engaging approach to studying jazz violin really inspires my own creativity in performance, improvisation, and composition. He is extremely fluent in teaching the language and vocabulary of jazz, gypsy jazz, funk, blues, fusion, and almost any other classical or contemporary idiom! I would definitely recommend him to any string player looking to take their artistry to the next level.
