About Thomas

I have been playing drums for over 47 years. For 16 years I played and performed professionally with my band Black Widow USA. We toured the US several times in support of our two internationally released CDs. For about 30 years of my time behind a drum set I had given drum lessons on and off. But b

Tom is a great instructor! Cam is learning so much and making great progress on the drums!
Cheryl I.
This is our first Drum instructor and we are thrilled with Thomas. He is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about teaching. His approach is positive in nature, meeting the student where they are at, takes their interest as the lead, and starts teaching there. My 11 year old son really likes him too! We go to our 4th lesson this afternoon.
Paul
These lessons were great. Regarding drums, I was an absolute beginner, and Tommy's lessons turned out to be an excellent jump-start. I used to play keyboards and guitars before, and I enjoy picking up by ear rather than reading notation, so I really liked informal and 'non-notational' way the lessons went. There was no hard notation drill, and yet Tommy had covered most rudiments, basic techniques, and patterns needed to rock in about 10 lessons. I'd recommend this for anyone who doesn't know how to hold sticks but want to get introduced into rock drumming.

"I had a week in Vegas set aside for a trade show, and wanted to also use the time to hunker down in my hotel room and work on my bass playing. I wanted to locate a teacher during that time to help me accelerate my playing over what I'd been able to figure out on my own, and I was extremely fortunate to be able to work in several lessons with Nick.

Nick's a terrific guy who's not only tremendously knowledgeable, but incredibly flexible in his teaching style and very quickly got me where I wanted to go. Thanks again, and my strongest possible recommendation!"

Not only does Mrs. Miller provide excellent technique and education by clearly explaining and demonstrating how to expand your musicality, but she also provides a safe and friendly environment to do so. It can be nerve wracking to sing on your own in front of someone, but she makes it feel so much easier to do so!"
