Tony was born in Trinidad in the West Indies and moved to St. Croix at the age of 19. His interest in music began with steel drums at the age of 10 and from there spread to the guitar when he was 15 years old. Tony began his professional career at the age of 21. Since that time he has played at various different venues from the West Indies and Canada to Hawaii, New York, San Francisco and numerous places in between. He has taught guitar to all levels of students, from beginners to advanced musicians. Since settling in the bay area he enjoys playing with local artists.
Though specializing in jazz guitar, his music is influenced by many genres including jazz, blues, folk, rock, classical, and country.
His unique approach to instruction is not just teaching his students to play a song but teaching them where sounds and music come from.
