Hello, my name is Thomas and I have been playing the ukulele for over 5 years now! I have taught my friends how to play the ukulele throughout the years and made it so enjoyable that they have went out to purchase a ukulele of their own. I think the world would be a better place if more people played the ukulele as it is perfect to relieve some stress.

I wouldn't say I am a "professional ukulele player" but not many can! I can, however, state that I can make very enjoyable lessons for you and can guarantee to get you to where you want to be. I can have you playing confidently in just a few lessons.

I have played in solo gigs as well as in a "band" and my biggest musical accomplishment was opening up for Mumford and Sons back in 2014.

I am excited to start a musical journey with anyone and look forward to seeing you progress :)

My son is new to football but was looking to join his middle school football team this year. Thomas was able to coach my son so he would be comfortable enough to not only try out, but get a starting position with his team! Look out world, #24 is going to turn heads!

Thomas was patient, understanding, and most importantly, professional and fun. My son always looked forward to seeing him and has helped him improve drastically. From not knowing how to play football to being a starter on his middle school team, his results speak for itself.

Really patient and fun teacher. I was really scared of reaching out but wanted to play the ukulele at my talent show. I only had 2 lessons with him but that was enough for him to give me the confidence I needed to play my piece flawlessly. He did a great job by being silly and bringing me out of my shell. Thank you for everything and I look forward to jamming with you soon

Just like everyone has mentioned already, Tommy does a great job making an easygoing environment. I looked forward to each lesson and he did a fantastic job and helping me at my own speed. It was tons of fun and we still keep in contact just for fun. The highlight was having him play at an open mic night with me at our local coffee shop! YOU ROCK THOMAS

Tommy made every lesson so enjoyable. It felt more like we were hanging out while he was going through each educational step. It was very casual but I felt myself become more confident and learning more that I ever would have by myself or watching Youtube videos.

He didn't let me give up when I said some strumming patterns were too difficult and made me believe in myself every time I wanted to move on and try something else.

If you are looking to get some fun lessons but intimidated by a tutor, Tommy is you guy! He will make it fun an easy!!
