Professional violinist, Bachelor and Master’s degrees from The Cleveland Institute of Music. 34 years performance and teaching experience, including Suzuki Teacher Training.
Tom is an excellent teacher. My children have been working with Tom for the past six years and they have grown into wonderful musicians. Tom offers both traditional and suzuki methodolgies and my sons have benefitted from both. I would highly recommend Tom to new or current violinists.
Mr. Fetherston is so patient, and always encourages my son to pull out his potentials. He is always ready to listen to student’s struggles, and helps out to overcome technical and musical skills/challenges. He understands schedule conflicts due to school sports/activities; he's willing to be flexible to take my son even in weekends.
Kind and motivated to teach even to kids that do prefer to do other things instaed of learning violin.
Tom is a fantastic instructor who taught my children for several years. He is well versed in both Suzuki repertoire and traditional styles of instruction. My children benefitted from his extensive knowledge and experience. He was always patient, kind and encouraging. He helped them excel while making lessons enjoyable.

How much time can you commit to daily practice? It’s better to do a little every day, even just ten minutes as a beginner, than a long session right before your lesson.
Is there a piece of music or style that you look forward to being able to play? What are your goals?
