My name is Tony Fazio, the founder of Annapolis Guitar School which serves the Annapolis, MD area. For as long as I can remember, I have always had an unquenchable passion when it comes to music, and I have been playing the guitar since the tender age of 7 years old. Having grown up in a musical family, playing a musical instrument was like second nature to me, and the guitar was just like an extension of myself.
I have a bachelor’s degree in which I majored in music having proudly graduated from the Berklee College of Music. After completing my degree at Berklee, I gained significant experience playing with noted D.C. blues legends such as Charlie Sayles and the Memphis Gold.
I have also played on tours in the international scene in a number of different islands such as Puerto Rico and Cuba, and many European countries. On the domestic level, I have also performed on two different occasions for the Kennedy Center.
I am also very actively working with Fetal Records Subsidiarity and have produced singles, collaborations, and solo albums featuring guest musicians. Some of these songs have been played on blues radio. Bearing all this in mind, once you come to my music school, you can be confident knowing that you are in good hands.
Whether you need guitar lessons, guitar performances for live shows, or music production services, I have you covered. Capitalize on this great opportunity and let a seasoned professional guitarist show you the ropes in the Annapolis, MD area! www.tonyfazioguitar.com
