My name is Tony, and I am a classically trained musician who wants to help you step up your music game! It's easy to say that music is my life, and I also love to share the experience of music to people of all ages, including small children and adults. I teach a very wide variety of genres.
For musicians that like rock, I can teach alternative, punk, pop punk, Christian, emo, folk, progressive, and especially math rock and post-rock.
For the metal heads, I can instruct you in genres like djent, doom/death/black/thrash metal, progressive metal, screamo, ska-core, neo-classical, nu metal, math core, and pretty much any other metal sub-genre.
For anyone else thinking about beginner guitar lessons or is a first-timer to guitar, I instruct all of my entry-level students in classical finger-style guitar. I believe this method is crucial to becoming a well-rounded player in any style of music. It is intense at first, but if you want to be a great guitarist, you can count on me to show you the way!
The technique that develops in your playing as you focus on classical music is something that other music teachers without proper classical training aren't delivering when instructing their students. It is so important, simply because of the overall superiority that classical technique has when applied to any and all genres. In other words, it is the perfect way to practice and learn.
My own projects stem from jazz fusion to progressive metal, to even folk/rap, so as far as I'm concerned, I pretty much do everything music-wise including performance, competition, education (theory), writing, recording, and touring.
If you are interested in contacting me about lessons or even just to jam sometime, I'd love to hear from you. Thank you for your consideration!
