"My objective in my teaching is to bring each student to their true performance potential by enriching them in theory, composition and by encouraging creative thought. I use various media to support my students and adjust my focus on their natural abilities and varied interests. My wide range of musical styles lends itself to keeping the student musically stimulated as I adhere to their interests without compromising my pedagogical system. I would like to be available to students who yearn to appreciate the very heartbeat of this craft." – Anthony Sanacore
