Guitarist, pianist, composer and educator Tony Davis grew up around music, being the son of two internationally renowned musicians. He earned his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies (Summa Cum Laude) at The Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz (Hartford, CT), and then relocated to New York City, where he earned his Master’s in Music at The City College of New York. As as an educator, Davis’ experience includes work at the Artist’s Collective (Hartford), private lessons and concerts/master classes with The Newport Jazz Assembly. His musical influences run the gamut of nearly every musical genre.
Tony has been an absolute gem. His skills at guitar and piano are outmatched only by his warm, welcoming charisma and patient teaching style. We have been thrilled by the progress our 9-year-old daughter has made since starting lessons with him. If you're looking to radically improve your musicianship or have a special someone in need of lessons, look no further.
Getting lessons with Tony has been great. I love it. He's very nice, and if you make a mistake, he doesn't get angry. He just helps you understand the mistake. It's been really fun. I've had a great time taking piano lessons with him.
