Tommy’s friendly, bubbly personality and high standards have made him one of the most sought after teachers in his home town of Liverpool, UK. He has recently equipped his studio for online trumpet lessons and online piano lessons.
 

“I have been a self taught trumpet player for a number of years with the odd lesson thrown in. I started lessons with Tom about 6 months ago and my only regret is that I didn’t start lessons with them 20 years ago. Not only do I enjoy every lesson, they explain things so well and make it very easy to understand what they want you to do to improve. They have corrected all my bad habits and I am transformed in my ability. Thank you Tom.”Joseph, Liverpool, UK

 
From the age of 8, Tommy has performed in piano, trumpet and singing in many competitions, festivals and concerts. Since completing ABRSM Grade 8 in both trumpet and piano he has continued performing and composing music for TV.

Tommy says, “I have been teaching since my mid 20s and have done all kinds of teaching work, including teaching in Primary and High Schools, Choirmaster in a Rock Choir. As a singing teacher I have taught in a Performance Arts School and Keyboard Teacher to University of Liverpool Music Students. I am accomplished in all aspects of playing whether it be classical, jazz, rock, blues, pop etc. and have a passion for recording & songwriting.”
 

“Tom teaches my daughter the piano and my son the trumpet. We were pleasantly surprised to find someone that was able to teach both instruments, saves a lot of hassle. My daughter had already passed ABRSM Grade 1 with another teacher at school but she had lost faith and wasn’t really enjoying it anymore. Now she is back on track, working towards Grade 4 and loves every lesson. My son, only 7, has taken to the trumpet quite wonderfully and despite his young age, has already passed Grade 2 with Merit and is now working on Grade 3. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone. Brilliant teaching.”Corrina Crosbie, Liverpool, UK
