About Tony

I have an extensive background in teaching music. This would include instrumental lessons, bands, jazz bands, improvisation, theory, composition, arranging, judging and audition preparation. I have taught instrumental music since 1965 in public school settings in Cambridge, North Reading ,Stoneham, Cohassett, Millis, DY, Somerville and the Boston Public schools as a tutor in group lessons for all band instruments. Currently I am the jazz program director for Barnstable High School in Hyannis ,MA where I have taught part time for 14 years. In these settings I have taught beginners, intermediate and advanced level students and conducted all manner of musical ensemble including: marching band, concert band, jazz band, chamber groups, percussion ensembles and various instrumental ensembles of mixed and varied instrumentaion.

I hold two degrees and extensive work in educational supervision. I am presently retired but have worked and still am in part time jobs involving teaching, directing and instructing most band instruments.
I have served on many boards and have judged in several genres of music performance. I have taught for the Berklee College of Music where I did considerable undergraduate study.

I have experience and communication skills with students of all ages. I also have the ability to interact and encourage students of all ages to further their interest and skills in music and the ability to bring out the latent talent of each and every student. I feel I can benefit all students of all levels in their musical pursuits.

I can adapt to most students' schedule and can travel to them for tutoring at their home, if desired.
