Perfect! Tom was very friendly and put me at ease immediately. It was my first lesson and we went through what I wanted to get out of my lessons. Would recommend!

Matthew

Perfect! I have only just started having lessons with Tom, but so far, so excellent. He is very accommodating and inclusive. Unusually I am taking lessons together with my Dad and Tom managed to cater very well to the slightly different levels. On top of all that he is very personable and the lesson was a fun experience. Looking forward to more.

I've performed with (and called friend) Tom for over a decade, in places as local as my back garden, to as far as the mountains of Nagano, Japan. He is an expert musician, composer, studio and stage artist who is able to teach you everything you need to know from your first attempt to your eventual mastery of the art of music, but also a wonderful personality who will make sure every lesson is engaging and memorable. Wherever you are on your journey, Tom will be able to give you the advice, tuition and motivation you need to succeed.

Tom is an outstanding musician that is very patient, reliable and helpful in ever light. His capacity to get along with people of all ages, from every walk of life makes me believe that he would be the perfect teacher for anyone seeking to learn and gain a better insight into the world of the ukulele. I would highly recommend him!
