About this pro

Zoom Lessons Available!!  My teaching approach: I am a professional performing artist. Writing and performing music is living a dream for me. I teach beginners and expereinced players, children and adults.

If you have any interest in learning or excelling at guitar, performing or song writing please do give a call. I make learning fun. We can learn theory, or not, depending on the way you learn. My main goal is to make music more accessible and fun for you and for you to be able to speak the language of music.

My influences are: BB KING, CARLOS SANTANA, JERRY GARCIA, STEVIE RAY VAN, ERIC CLAPTON, JIMI HENDRIX, BUDDY GUY, STEVEN STILLS, CITIZEN COPE,  BEN HARPER, AMOS LEE.....

My guitar lessons take place in:  Either via Zoom, or in my studio in North East Boulder. Guitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Guidance In Equipment Selection

I absolutely Love the work I do. I have had so much success teaching beginners as small as 6 years old all the way to savy players in their 70's. I love making you better at guitar and all that comes with it!! Vist me here:

    January, 2016 Thomas has really helped me progress with my guitar playing over the last few months. I have learned so much about picking and strumming while having a blast at the same time! My confidence levels have increased ten-fold, and I am excited every time I pick up the guitar. Thomas is a wonderful instructor who cares deeply about each of his students. I recommend him highly!

    March 2016 "I had wanted to write songs for many years. As a moderate acoustic guitarist, it all seemed way above my pay grade. Through Thomas' gentle way of teaching, it actually was much easier, much more accessible than I thought! To date, I have written two songs and I am on my way to writing some more. Next Thomas is working with me on the courage to perform those songs!!" Longmont, Colorado
