"Tom approaches his students with humility. He gives anyone who is trying, regardless of objective ability, his complete attention.  Through our lessons I’ve become a much better composer of both music and lyrics."-Anthony P. 

 "Tom has helped me take my playing  and theory knowledge to another level, with a mixture of skill and patience. He's a great teacher."        -Pete G.  

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


I aim to create an environment where students learn without judgment or pressure.  I'm gratified to help people realize their lifelong of goals, whether that's transitioning from amateur to professional performer or even writing their first song.

My approach to teaching guitar is focused on core techniques, theory and overall musicianship that can be applied to any style of playing. I prefer teaching intermediate to advanced students who have hit a plateau in their development.

I really enjoy teaching the craft of songwriting.  In these lessons I not only discuss how to write music but also lyric writing as well.  I'm a true fan of good songwriting and I love to pass my love of the craft on to aspiring songwriters.
