Teaching since 1980. I pursued a piano performance degree at Brigham Young University. I hold a piano recital each year to showcase my students’ talents and I regularly perform professionally at weddings, parties, and the like. Aside from private instruction, I also played piano at the Bellevue Square Nordstrom for 13 years between 1986 and 1999.

I enjoy seeing my students improve and enjoy the experience! I believe that having fun is important, to keep my students motivated. I truly care about each of my students, and only want them to succeed and love music!

    I was not able to work with him. He text bombed me when I let him know I was driving. He also texted me at a late hour at night. I would not hire this man! 😠

    Tom is an excellent teacher! He made me - a 32 years old adult who has no experience at all feel confident and comfortable even at the first lesson with him. He combines piano knowledge and practice in such a fun way. I also appreciative his teaching pace, he makes sure to teach as much as he can in the limited time, so by the end of the lesson I felt I have learned so much already. Plus Tom explains to me the terms I dont understand as English is not my first language and after his explaination they all made sense, I think thats an important skill for teaching a ESL student. I feel honored to be able to learn from him and I highly recommend Tom as your piano teacher as well!

    Tom is very patient and kind with his students. My daughter has learned so much from his instruction. He cares about his students and their families.

    I have been taking lessons from Tom for just over a year and have thoroughly enjoyed them! As a 31 year old guy, Im way outside the average age range of most piano students and Tom clearly adapts to students of any age. He is a great resource when learning how to understand sheet music and will guide you through songs you want to learn. I have a great time at every lesson going over songs, asking questions or just joking around.

    Besides being an excellent pianist, Tom Manley is a patient teacher and very pleasant to work with. He is encouraging and keeps me on task. I appreciate his guidance in the nuances of each piece I tackle, and his extensive knowledge of music theory--he makes learning lively and interesting.
