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
