    Tony was fantastic with my son. Tony made my son feel more confident and eager to learn. He was able to break down the lessons for a first time player while giving the encouragement to want to learn more! Top Notch INSTRUCTOR!

    Tony is an outstanding musician and a teacher! He is very inspiring as he is playing piano absolutely stunning and his way of teaching is fabulous. You will be very lucky to get space with him! Very Highly recommended. I am a pianist but I wanted to develop my skills in jazz music, and what I've learned from Tony, was very very impressive! He was the best teacher I found in New York and I'll be coming back to him again and again when I'll be there. Thank you so much Tony!

    Tony is a great teacher. He not only teaches me the technicalities of playing the piano but most importantly, he guides me to use the tools he gives me to express myself through music.

    I was an absolute beginner when I hired Tony. Not only did he make me feel very comfortable as a beginner, he taught me so much about the instrument and music in general. I have learned so much with Tony.
