About Thomas

My musical life began during the "folk boom" of the 1960's. I began songwriting and performing during my high school years. Later I was a member of a folk-rock band called The Bean Angels. We preformed and recorded in the Iowa City, Iowa area. Later I attended Montana State University where I studied music education. My training included: piano skills, music theory, music history, aural perception, conducting, and vocal pedagogy. I have several decades experience in teaching. I have taught guitar, piano, voice, and ukulele, and have directed a children's choir. *** Lesson Details *** I believe that each individual has his or her own particular learning style and pace.

I've been taking ukulele lessons from Tom for about 2 months and have just added voice lessons. Tom is a very thoughtful, kind man. He has a great deal of knowledge about the theoretical and practical/performance aspects of instruction. He is also excellent at adapting his lessons to my own particular goals. What more could you want!

What a great experience for our family!

In August, our 7 yr. old daughter, Nathalie, started piano lessons with Thomas. She played her first Christmas carol here in early November! Thomas is a wonderful instructor! Undertstanding, warm, and very patient! I highly recommend his services!!
Scott G. Silver Spring, MD

the first thing I do is find the vocal range of the student and let them become aware of how low and how high they are actually capable of singing. Next through proper breathing and singing techniques we learn how to expand the range to it's full capacity using songs they know and finding the right key for the student

Guitar · In studio
I never imagined a beginner guitar class to be so comprehensive, challenging and yet so much fun. There's a lot to learn about playing the guitar from holding it to learning how to read music to playing a tune. Scott's easy going style encourages even the most slothful students like myself. We do it all in 1 and a half hours twice a week. His students have a wide range of experience with music and the guitar but at each session Scott is able to ensure that each one of us gets something out of the class. For example, he'll instruct the advanced students to play a more complicated version of a piece. Or he'll touch base with every student in the class at least twice by physically walking over and showing them something, asking a question, checking on their guitar, etc. Finally, he has those qualities that make for outstanding teachers - he not only knows and loves his work but he's really good at it. So each session is a fun mini concert lesson.

I've been taking lessons for about a month now and I have learned so much. Not only basics on the instrument but also music theory which I've always had problems with before. Each lesson is a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I look forward to my lessons each week.

Scott is easy-going, patient and seems to know what is needed for the stage of instruction that I am at. I highly recommend Scott as an instructor. He has helped me with the ukulele tremendously in just four lessons. Couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Outstanding artist and teacher!

Lilly is a thoughtful instructor. I loved how she took time to understand my child's level of instruction and ways to learn best. I was particularly impressed with her follow through. She took time during a non scheduled day to e-mail and ask if my student had any questions. These things inspire my daughter to practice and is helping her to love the piano. Thank you Lilly!

Lisa is a fabulous and generous teacher. I was very scared about embarking on this venture to try and learn to sing. She has been encouraging and gentle and very, very helpful. She instills hope as well as provides me with the encouragement to keep getting better and better. I highly recommend Lisa as an excellent teacher.

Lisa has been very helpful in assisting my nephew with his singing lessons. My nephew expressed that Lisa's very encouraging and does a good job of addressing the genre of music he prefers. He feels that he's making progress with his singing.

Sammy H. College Park, MD

In my formal studies, I have trained with renowned voice teachers including Marlena Malas (vocal coach of Luciano Pavarotti) and Edith Bers. Through the years, I have built a vocal technique from the ground up which has allowed me to teach and guide students in their journey to improve their singing.

Learning to sing is a rewarding and worthwhile endeavor and the vocal technique I instill in students will enhance and develop range, resonance, tone quality, breathing, and musicianship. I am confident you will walk out of every lesson an improved and finer singer than before. Our sessions together will assist you in any genre you wish to sing in a healthy and confident manner.

**Lesson Details**
In our session, we dedicate half the time to warm ups and tailored vocal exercises for technique development. In the latter half of the lesson, we apply these principles into song repertoire that can consist of assigned repertoire appropriate for your vocal growth and/or songs you are ...

Sammy has been extremely helpful in helping me hone my voice skills. I had no experience in singing, but with his instruction I progressed much faster than I could have expected. He has experience with multiple genres and is very responsive to the individual needs of the student.

I would recommend him for any aspiring vocalist.
