Teaching since:

I've been playing since I was 9 years old, and have toured and recorded with a bunch of people and learned a lot of things! I graduated new school for jazz and contemporary music where I studied with some of the best guitarists in New York, and play regularly in NYC with a bunch of really amazing bands. I also teach at The School Of Rock in Manhattan and work with kids of all ages in both group and one-on-one settings.

Tom is one of the best teachers I've ever had. When I first started studying with him, I really couldn't do much on the guitar, let alone write songs, write arrangements, or record music by myself. Nowadays, I feel comfortable in all of these areas, largely thanks to my lessons with Tom. Toms's explanations are extremely thorough and clear, and Tom always finds a way to make even the most boring things fun and interesting. +Tom has a great sense of humor- Could not recommend anyone more!! 5 stars
