KUVO is very sad to hear of the passing of music educator and friend of our music community, Tony Gulizia aka Tony G.

He’s not only made an impact on us but an impact on countless students that were under his direction. Giving some children their first look into the world of music, and igniting their passion to pursue it. We found a great quote from him in a web post from Vail Jazz that gives a glimpse into his passion for music and music education: “I definitely have a lot of love for what I do,” Gulizia says.

“I love working with people. Music is something very special in anyone’s life, whether you’re an avid or an occasional listener. It literally soothes the soul. It was 26 years ago that I moved here with my wife and kids. Before you knew it, word got around that there’s a new crazy piano guy around. I feel very fortunate that I’ve had such a great run.” – Tony
