Creating Music Together
Learn to play a musical instrument with one of our experienced tutors. We offer online lessons, and when we're not in lockdown, face-to-face lessons too.
In our lessons, you'll learn how to hold your instrument and be shown how to create a beautiful sound. We'll show you how to read music, and more importantly, how to hear music.
We'll show you how to practice, so you'll know exactly what should be playing each week.
Whether you want to learn to play for your own enjoyment or work towards an exam, we can help you reach your goals.
What Our Students say
"On retiring I decided that although having no musical background I would like to try to learn to play guitar.
I began with Tom on acoustic and found his teaching approach friendly, enthusiastic, and very motivating. He tailors my learning to my musical tastes which increases my enjoyment and always progresses at an appropriate pace to suit my ability.
In five years since I started, acoustic has become electric and I have experienced a wide variety of musical styles ,from the fifties to present day. I really enjoy my lessons and always look forward to the next week. Regardless of age and ability I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for a tutor/mentor to help them enjoy their experience in learning guitar."

"I’ve been learning with Tom for a few years, and learning from him I’ve felt and heard my guitar playing progress immensely. Tom has taught me many invaluable skills, and allowed me to properly explore the magic of guitar and performing. Recently, Tom has guided me through a Grade 5 Trinity Guitar exam which I managed to pass with distinction, and supported this through opportunities at the annual recitals to play in front of the other students. These experiences have been brilliant to compound my learning as well as really putting it to the test. Tom himself is a masterful guitarist, with expert knowledge of many musical genres and playing styles, and a wealth of theoretical understanding to back it up. As well as being friendly and a patient teacher for those of all skill levels, you can be sure Tom will help you discover constant, refreshing inspiration to really develop your playing and musicality - all while having fun rocking out to your favourite songs!"
"My lessons are the highlight of the week. Tom's teaching is second to none. He has this uncanny ability to pitch his explanation at just the right level, using the right analogy, to make learning new techniques much easier and me a much better guitarist."

Playing with Tom is always a joy, he is an amazing teacher and friend with in-depth knowledge of music. Since playing with Tom I have achieved grade 3 in a Rockschool guitar exam and been able to get lots of experience playing guitar live in a band. I have played many gigs with Tom, all thanks to the knowledge and confidence that he has given me.
