I've learned so much from my lessons with Tom. We have been working on finger style techniques in solo jazz guitar playing. I feel like I have improved technically and musically.
Tom is an excellent teacher. He is very patient and caring and knows so much about music. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn or improve!
