Originally from Massachusetts, Tom is passionate about music performance and teaching, having done both since the age of 16. In high school, he created an annual benefit concert for his community to give all ages a platform to perform. He was also an assistant to Ken DoRosario, an accomplished music therapist who specializes in counseling children with autism.
Tom graduated from the University of Georgia, where he studied Classical Guitar Performance under Dr. Daniel Bolshoy. Along with learning how to play guitar at a more advanced level, Tom further developed his teaching ability by adjusting to each individual student’s needs, and working on their points of improvement.
Tom creates healthy fundamentals for students that will lead to ease of playing and a better overall experience on the guitar. Along with having a thorough knowledge of classical music, he loves playing and teaching the blues, pop, rock, and more.Back to Classes & Teachers>
