ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
American Institute of Guitar; New York, NY Studied under Dennis Koster (author of Keys to Flamenco Guitar).   Juan Orozco School of Flamenco Guitar; New York, NY Studied under Emilio Prados, Mario Escudero, and Juan Orozco.
Overview:
Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I’ve been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during my teens, performing professionally and have had the honor of performing with such nationally known musicians as Billy Bang (legendary fiddle player), Willy Calhoun (Living Colour), Vassar Clements Band, Tom Chapin, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles, and Michael Powers. In high school, I enrolled in an Honors Musicianship class at the RiverDell, NJ, Senior High where I learned to read scores, conduct and identify multiple instruments, sight read, orchestrate scores and compose music. Following my true passion, I enrolled in the American Institute of Guitar (AIG), studying under the most sought after Flamenco guitar teacher for the past 20 years, Dennis Koster (author of Keys to Flamenco Guitar) and met the legendary Sabicas in person. At the same time, I began training in the Blues, educating myself on various styles and from various teachers, eventually going all the way to the tracks.
EXPERIENCE
I’ve been teaching guitar – acoustic, electric, and bass – for more than 30 years, from either a student’s home or from my home studio, which I’ve had for approximately 10 years. I use the latest in computer technology, supplementing my curriculum with one of the industry’s most sophisticated guitar programs. I am adamant about providing applicable points of motivation and obtainable objectives to encourage growth for each student and find musical styles they enjoy performing. For Flamenco students, I encourage corresponding study in a second genre of music to add to one’s growth. It is imperative to me that students learn in a fun, relaxed environment and are provided with an all-encompassing education.
METHODS USED
I’m a firm believer in thoroughly covering all subject matter, including music theory and staff and chord chart reading. Learned in acoustic, electric and bass guitar and piano instruction, I incorporate computer-aided teaching techniques to capture students’ attention and maintain a logbook of student progress, supplementing reports with digital images of each student’s technique. I’ve developed a chord specific teaching methodology and created my own teaching curriculum. I Offer points of motivation and obtainable objectives to encourage each student’s growth and developed a teaching system for challenging, attention deficit and neurologically challenged students. I pride myself on providing clear instruction and developing well thought out lesson and practice plans.
LESSON STYLE
Staying true to traditional teaching is important to me, however each student learns at his/her own pace where one student may need a slower, more structured curriculum while another needs a more varied, advanced course of study. This revels itself quickly and I pride myself in my ability to diagnose one’s learning style, finding his/her specific need and applying various methods to address that need, from sight reading and transposing to finger placement and exercises. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to teach students on an individual basis, which allows me to customize lesson plans according to each student’s needs and abilities. I believe that everyone excels in different ways, and once I ascertain what makes a student learn most proficiently, I’m able to provide points of motivation to excite, encourage and bring out the musician in each student.

Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony
