I teach all ages. Experienced with beginners of all ages and advanced students. More advanced students need a teacher that specialises in the style they wish to persue.

I love giving students the inspiration to follow their dreams of music:)

    My sister has been lessons with Tom for over a year. He has been accommodating and an excellent teacher. My sister likes how he reviews the things she has learned. I have noticed she is able to retain the information he teaches her. Since starting she has learned how to read music, recognize notes, tune her guitar, how to place her fingers on the strings, and how to play several songs.
