Trumpet

Michael Sachs

“My time studying with Tony Plog was transformative. I say without any hesitation that had it not been for his wonderful support and guidance, I would not be enjoying the career I have. Tony’s warmth, vast knowledge, persistence, and sense of humor offered me the tools I needed for success. There is no trumpet student of any level who wouldn’t benefit greatly, and immediately, from Tony’s input and perspective.”
