Styles - Jazz and Bossa Nova. Tony specializes in teaching general music, which will apply to any style of music.

Tony’s teaching style is like being a sports coach. He analyzes his students to find their weakness in their playing so that they can work on that. He believes he can inspire students to play music at a higher level. Tony’s classroom is energetic, thought provoking, and fun.
