Music Lessons

In person or online

My lessons are tailored to your specific needs. I'll take a careful look at your goals, strengths, and areas where you'd like to improve, and then create a plan just for you. I want to help you become a better player or composer as quickly as possible, while making lessons fun and motivating.

 Some of the Topics I've Covered With My Students:

  • Music Theory
  • Guitar Techniques
  • Lyric Writing 
  • Music Composition
  • Ear Training
  • Arranging
  • Live Performance Strategies
I wanted to change the key of the song I was writing. I used the number system you showed me to change the chords and it totally worked. I felt weeks of material ‘click’ for me and stood there amazed for a few minutes just thinking “that’s magic!” - Andy F.
I've learned to approach lyric writing with a more critical eye. Tom has shown me the value in digging deeper to get the most meaning and impact from my songs.” - George A.
Tom approaches his students with humility. Through our lessons I’ve become a much better composer of both music and lyrics” - Anthony P.
