Tom is a great teacher. I have been studying with him at FSU for a for a few months, and he has greatly improved my strength of sound. He has also helped me work on my musical expression.

He also never hesitates to compliment you if you deserve it. Tom is also very good at helping you achieve a high level of musical expression. Overall Tom is a great teacher.+ Read More
Definitely knows what he is doing in terms of playing and instructing. He gives constructive criticism and tips necessary to improve your playing each lesson.
Pushes me to be the greatest guitarist I can be. Helps me by finding music that I like to play for my rep.
Tom is a great teacher; he doesn't let you take it easy and won't stop working or going over something unless you nail it. I always feel comfortable asking him questions too, as he is happy to answer them and always supportive. I look forward to lessons and always leave excited to practice what I've learned from him.+ Read More
A really great teacher. He's patient and his instructions are concise, easy to understand and straight forward. He taught difficult techniques in a very simple and intuitive way. He has a great understanding of musicality and tone. This understanding also underpins his teaching of the guitar, and is overall one of the biggest reasons I recommend him as a teacher.+ Read More
I am so lucky to have found Tom as my guitar teacher. He is very flexible with planning lessons. I have picked up some bad habits before I met him but he has been extremely patient with me throughout the process of getting rid of the habits. He is a hard working teacher who offers amazing expertise. I only wish I had learned from him sooner.+ Read More
