Mentoring for Teachers

All experience levels

Do you want to teach your students non-traditional skills such as improvising, playing by ear, and reading chord charts? But maybe you’re not sure how to begin? We have you covered! popMATICS is a great supplement to any curriculum.


I have studied classical piano at a collegiate level and have been teaching for 2 decades. popMATICS is helping me grow as a musician and as a teacher in ways I never have before.  Tony is an excellent teacher who really cares about giving value to his students. He is good at what he does, but is also patient, humble and approachable. You will love working with him!

I love the program and so does Lily! The flexibility and the fact that Lily had a play date but her friend could still hang and participate was cool! I’m so impressed with what you’re building . . . a whole community!

- Sarah MacDonald

Both our girls experienced the genius and talented teaching of Tony for many years and thoroughly enjoyed and learned to love music as part of their life.  You will find no better music learning experience for your child than with Tony. Tony is one of the best in his profession as a teacher and conveying his infectious love of music.

Tony has an awesome style that is both comprehensive and laid back. His passion for music and teaching is contagious! His approach and material for teaching popular music and theory are a fantastic way to master the art of playing by ear while building a solid foundation to play for life (even after lessons).
