About Thomas

I studied guitar at Berklee College of Music in Boston and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelors of Music. For over ten years now I've been teaching private lessons and doing tutoring sessions both out of peoples' homes, as well as at the at a school of music in MA. I've since expanded and now, in addition to guitar, I also do Banjo and Ukulele, teaching theory and songs that range from Pop to Blues, Classic Rock, Country, R&B and even Funk.

Besides being a teacher, I am also a profession musician working with multiple bands in the area playing various gigs, both paying and not. With one group in particular, we've gotten a lot of positive feedback/press both in New England as well as other parts of the country and even throughout Europe. Most recently, we've been Nominated for a Blues Music Award for best debut album 2014.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

During college, ear training was an essential course of study. During most of my semesters at Berklee, there was at least one course per semester dedicated to ear training! I teach transcribing songs with guitar students now. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Berklee College of Music.

Guitar

I have a Bachelor's in music from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. My main instrument that I applied with was the guitar. I make my living now teaching guitar lessons, and playing guitar in several bands.

Music History

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Berklee College of Music in Boston MA. During college, I was required to take many courses of music history. There were different classes each dedicated to a different genre of music: Rock, Classical, Blues, tc.

Songwriting

With my guitar students, I mainly teach through song examples. Breaking down songs and learning how they are put together and how they relate to each other. This is essential I find for songwriting. I have many students who, with these examples, go on to write many tunes of there own! I studied guitar at Berklee College of Music in Boston and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Music.
