    If you are fortunate to have the opportunity to study piano with Tom, you will find that he is not only a musician of exquisite sensibility, but also a natural and gifted teacher. His enthusiasm for teaching and his love of great music is contagious and inspiring. As a patient and articulate communicator of musical concepts, he will guide you to reach your goals and to play the music you love

    Tom is a wonderful teacher - calm, insightful, and fun to work with. I was new to piano and he listened to my goals, found just the right book for me to use, and set realistic goals for every lesson. He shared stories about composers and the history of music to give some background and context to the pieces I played. His warmth and enthusiasm made the lessons a pleasure
