"Tony Sona is a professional. He cares about the culture of music, education and fills the gap for this particularly necessary part of development for children, adolescents and adults. He is exceptionally passionate and committed to this cause. Tony is also a smart and an extremely pleasant individual to work and collaborate with and would make a fine addition to any music organization that is lucky enough to have him and I recommend him without reservation."
