Experienced Leicester based Musician and Guitarist offering lessons- All Styles and Levels

Methodology

I am able to tutor you on any topic that you might want to learn, from beginner level through to advanced. This could include Guitar, Bass & Piano Technique, Composition, Songwriting and Music Theory. I believe that musical ability is innate in all of us, and that it can be at the tips of your fingers if you can only find the methods that are right for you.

Experience

I have been playing Music for over 15 years, and teaching Music for around half that time. I have an extensive knowledge of most styles and genres, and I graduated from DeMontfort University in 2018 with a Degree in Music Technology.

I have known Tom personally for a number of years and have collaborated on numerous musical projects. His passion for music is obvious. He is dedicated to his craft and is constantly looking to improve and expand his teaching methods, with the ultimate goal of inspiring others to create their own music.

Tom is a friendly and talented teacher who has very much improved my musical abilities. I’ve got a lot more confident playing guitar and learned so much more about music too. I’ve also gained skills in reading music and confidence playing and performing. Great teacher who allowed me to re-discover my love of music. Would recommend!

Tom is a really helpful tutor. He lets you choose the direction of your learning and gives practical advice and support to help you achieve your goals. He's very patient, easy-going and flexible. The theory he includes is useful for both begginers and those refreshing their learning.

Interview with Tom

QUESTION 01 | 08
1) When did you first develop a passion for music and your favourite instrument?
Tom — I picked up my first guitar around the age of 15. From then on, I knew that a professional musician was the only thing I wanted to be. With it serving as my hobby as well as my career, my musical horizons broaden every single day.
QUESTION 02 | 08
2) Is there a particular type music or artist that you listen to on a loop without it driving you crazy?
Tom — Radiohead. Nothing compares. Except more Radiohead.
QUESTION 03 | 08
3) Explain to us the most difficult or riveting course you could personally give to a student of music.
Tom — Get good. And grasp the music. It's as simple as that. Do you just want to raise a decent tune or become unmatched in your musical skill, precision and versatility like none before you? Taking on that kind of goal is no easy task. But the experience it provides is the work of a lifetime, and one that will set you on an unending course of discovery. Listen, learn and love what you do. Music is a science as well as an art.
QUESTION 04 | 08
4) What do you think is the most complicated instrument to master and why?
Tom — For me, it's the mastery of what you do specifically. What you're saying means much more than what medium you're saying it with. Does your music breathe? Does it move people? That's a hard thing to come to grips with indeed, whatever instrument you play.
QUESTION 05 | 08
5) What are your keys to success?
Tom — Practice makes perfect of course. It's not the only thing you need though. Love learning. Enjoy what you do and take it in small steps, especially in the beginning. Surround yourself with like minded and motivated musicians who want what you want: Whether that's bashing out a few covers on the weekend or becoming the next Beatles.
QUESTION 06 | 08
6) Name three musicians you dream of meeting in your favourite bar in the early hours of the morning. Explain why.
Tom — Guthrie Govan, Thom Yorke and Aphex Twin. Three of the greatest living artists and songwriters, whose contributions have changed the face of music forever. Why? Do I need to repeat myself? Haha.
QUESTION 07 | 08
7) Provide a valuable anecdote related to music or your days at music school.
Tom — 'Always strive to serve the music and not show off.' One of my instructors once told me before an assessment. 'If you've got a great feel, you'll get the job.'
QUESTION 08 | 08
8) What are the little touches that make you a Superprof in music?
Tom — I am a seasoned artist in every sense of the word: A multi instrumentalist, performer and teacher with a flexible schedule and a well developed philosophy for learning. Whatever you want to accomplish in the acquisition of your musical voice, I'm certain I can help you find it.
