About Sonny S.

Sonny started playing music when he was 5 years old. By the age of 13 he was an accomplished bass player. By 15, he was playing in numerous bands as a bassist, guitarist, keyboard player, and drummer. After graduating Towson High School in 1999, Sonny attended Frederick Community College to learn about music theory and production. Sonny has been hired to play on albums as a bassist and guitarist. He has also been in bands and played many shows over the years. Sonny started teaching music lessons in his late teens and by 25 he had over a dozen students. Sonny is passionate about teaching music to people who have the desire and drive to learn. He has had students ranging from 6 to 80 years old. Although playing music is Sonny's real passion, teaching is a close second.

Why I Work Well with Kids

I have two kids of my own (13 and 15) that I have had the pleasure of teaching. My daughter plays saxophone and my son plays clarinet primarily. I have had the pleasure of teaching them both piano and guitar as well. They are both now All County musicians in Frederick, Maryland. I have also had quite a few young students over the years.
