Tom has been teaching my children music for over 10 years. He has been a great inspiration to them and has taught my oldest son the guitar and flute to a high level. He has taught my youngest the guitar and the recorder. Lessons are always enjoyable and have become a greatly valued part of their education.

Tom has helped me to get to the next level of guitar playing and musical proficiency. I have been able to really develop my improvisational skills though a clear understanding of harmony and scales. This has given me the confidence to start my own band and start performing publicly. Tom is a wonderful teacher, I would highly recommend him.
