Hear what parents and students have to say about me.
"Thomas is a passionate, patient and talented guitarist and music instructor. He successfully balances challenging my son [his students] with technique and skill while simultaneously supporting his individual passions and interests. Thomas’ calm, supportive and cheerful approach instantly won the trust of my son and has made him want to perform better and practice more. Over the past two years, Thomas has successfully guided my son in learning the guitar; he looks forward to his lesson each week."

"He’s really fun and nice. He’s a great teacher. He can play lots of types of music. He starts easy on you and then if you want to, you can ask to learn songs that you like."

"I like that he lets me play loud!"

"Thomas has been teaching my son guitar since July 2017. He has an impeccable record of punctuality and reliability. He schedules his time well and has always been someone our family can count on. My son has loved learning from Thomas and has found a love of music through Thomas’ teachings. Thomas makes the lessons fun and engaging and I would absolutely recommend him to other students."
- Lauren, Parent
"Thomas started teaching our son when he just turned 4y.o., he is now 9 y.o. and absolutely loves playing his guitar.
All these years Thomas was patient, encouraging, persistent and diplomatic when teaching. Thomas knows how to stop our son from chit chatting and focus his attention on the class; he also does not hesitate to deviate from the program and follow our son’s interest in music that, over the last years, ranged from Beethoven to AC/DC to Beatles.
Thanks to Thomas’s efforts our son is happy to perform in school at each assembly and demonstrate his guitar skills.
I have no hesitation to recommend Thomas to other students."
- Marina, Parent
"Our 3 children love that he caters their lessons to their individual music tastes. From heavy metal to princesses...everything you can imagine! This encourages them to love to practice instead of it being a chore.
His patience and fun teaching style has adapted to each of our children’s unique interests and personalities.
We were amazed how quickly he and our kids adapted to virtual lessons during the pandemic. It was important for us to give our kids music during these challenging times."
- Rachel, Parent
"I like that he lets me pick the songs and the types of music I play.
He knows the answers to all my questions about different bands and how to get the sounds they play.
He doesn’t get mad at me if I can’t get a song right. He just tells me how I can try to work on it in a different way for my next lesson."

"My son is very interested in music but at times, not very self motivated. I have found Thomas to be very patient and resourceful. He always finds a way to keep my son engaged and progressing in music. Thomas is approachable and flexible in his teaching methods. I would highly recommend Thomas for personal, one on one teaching.
