IMPORTANT - REGARDING MY AVAILABILITY PLEASE NOTE:

The availability listed on the calendar is NOT my FULL availability. Because I am a full-time teacher AND performer, my schedule flexes throughout the year and the hours listed are a limited window of what I may actually have for you. I am very flexible and try to accommodate everyone. Depending on the time of year, I usually have night hours on two days a week and teach on many Saturday mornings / afternoons as well. Click on the 'Ask George F.

Fantastic first lesson, really looking forward to learning more. George is a great guy and great teacher, I feel like I'm in great hands.
Sam J Ottobre
First lesson was impressive. George is clearly fluent in the language of music. He was able to identify problems with my singing (which were not exactly what I thought they were)and give me solutions for them. He explained this to me in terms I understood. The hour with him was the most targeted constructive time I’ve had in my journey to become a singer.For lesson one, you can’t ask for more than that.
Connie
George is a personable, knowledgeable, and gifted teacher. He can tailor the lessons to fit anyone's needs.

My students range from children (8+ up) to adults to senior citizens. Whether you are brand new to playing the guitar or just want to brush up on the basics, you have found the right place. My objective is simple: Let's have fun!

I am flexible in my teaching style. If you want a more formal approach, I can teach you how to read music and play melodies & chords of some of your favorite songs. If formal is not your thing and you just want to learn to improvise, we can go there also.

I can definitely teach any serious student how to play well. I can get you ready to play in a band and perform live. Classic Rock, Blues and Jazz are my specialties. I've been teaching and performing these styles nationally for over 30 years. If you really want to learn how to play well, I'm your teacher. We'll definitely have fun and the more you practice, the more fun you'll have. And if you just want to learn a few chords and a few tunes to strum, we can do that too. You pick, guitar hero or just a fun hobby. Anyone can learn to play and have fun with the way I teach.

About Tom

I've been teaching and playing professionally for over 30 years. I take great care to make sure each student gets what they need to really enjoy music on the guitar. Each student has different musical styles they like and each has different abilities. I work with each student to focus on his or her

Lynne
Tom is an excellent music teacher. He has been teaching our granddaughter classical guitar and we have been very pleased. I taught instrumental and vocal music in the public schools. I also taught strings at the Arts School .
He is well educated in the music field and has had so much performing experience so he has a very well rounded background, I think you would be very pleased
to study with Tom.
Sam
I have had a terrific experience working with Tom. Playing guitar for nearly 20 years, I was looking for advanced instruction and coaching. Focusing specifically on Jazz, Tom has helped me elevate my playing ability and understanding of the art form. Tom is a professional musician that has an ability to connect with his students of all ages and levels. I highly recommend working with Tom.

"I took guitar classes from Greg for about 8 years, bass lessons for about a year, and drum lessons for about a year, and eventually worked with him as an instructor as well; I'll let you know that you will be very hard-pressed to find a better teacher than Greg - he takes the time to really delve deep into all your lessons and give you the best experience, as well as wonderful material to work with, in order to help you fully reach your potential as a musician. On top of that, he really gets to know you and caters to your style of learning, and helps you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, overall making your learning experience the most fruitful it can be. Besides, he makes the learning fun! I highly recommend and respect Greg as a musician and an instructor."
