Tomasso has been my son’s guitar teacher for over a year. The first thing we liked about Tomasso is that he is very patient with him, addressing any question a ten-year-old would ask, then showing genuine enthusiasm to his achievements. He understood my son’s level and could pick up from there and build up. Tomasso learned to play my son’s favorite songs so he could teach him for his school’s talent show audition. Furthermore, I am grateful that Tomasso has exposed my son to different music genres, blues, jazz, etc.; showing him not only how to play, but also explaining the history behind it.
Tomasso is very professional, always making sure to confirm with us class time and tell us in advance when he will be touring.
I would recommend Tomasso to any one and we are looking forward to another year of guitar lessons.

I've been taking lessons from Tommaso for about 7 months and he is exactly what I had hoped to find in a teacher. He's very personable and does a great job of tailoring the lessons around what the student wants to get out of them. When I started, he made it a point to find out the type of music that I listen to and am interested in playing, as well as what skills I was hoping to gain.

As an adult taking beginner's lessons, I can say that Tommaso is very patient and takes the time to answer any questions that I have, whether or not they're important to the lesson at that time. He's done an excellent job of teaching me music theory from the ground up, and often shares insightful examples that help me to better understand the concepts at the heart of the lesson. He's also extremely considerate and polite, always asking if I would like something to drink before we start a lesson and never troubled when I reschedule or cancel lessons on short notice.

At 24 years old, I never thought that'd I'd be sight-reading music and playing piano (somewhat) capably - but I am thanks to Tommaso! And I look forward to continuing to learn from him.

Tommaso is an amazing teacher. He is well versed in guitar and music theory. My 10 year old son learned to play music and Tommaso was very reliable.

I've been taking private piano lessons with Tommaso for a bit over a year. He is very patient, lessons are structured and organized, and I've been expanding my repertoire with songs I enjoy, as well as working on fundamentals. Recommended
