Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.
Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.
Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!

Tommy is an excellent Guitar teacher...very knowledgeable!
I am a beginner and Tommy was very patient, positive and encouraging
Definitely one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's patient, talented, and really nice. I learned way more than I expected during my first lesson, and it was really fun.
Thomas is very patient and kind. Lessons are for my 10 hear old.
He loves him!
Lessons have been for my 10 year old boy. Thomas is super patient, kind, and knowledgeable.

Thomas is a wonderful teacher, he is helping me gather my thoughts on the songwriting process and provides excellent guidance on how to proceed in my own practice as a novice.
A great, enthusiastic teacher!
