About Tom


Bio

My name is Tom and I’m a retired Band Director from Chester Academy in Chester NY. I can tell you from my own experience how much better a band performs when you have a solid percussion section. It’s been said that poorly trained drummers can ruin an otherwise great band while a great percussion section can make a good band sound even better.

My name is Tom and I’m a retired Band Director from Chester Academy in Chester NY. I can tell you from my own experience how much better a band performs when you have a solid percussion section. It’s been said that poorly trained drummers can ruin an otherwise great band while a great percussion section can make a good band sound even better.

My background includes a BM and MM from The Manhattan School of Music in Percussion performance and education, more than 31 years teaching at the Middle/Jr./High School level as Band Director and more than 45 years as a member of Local 802 AFM playing drums professionally in the New York Metro area. I am looking for a few serious dedicated students who really want to know how to play Drums correctly.

My private students have consistently scored high at N.Y.S.S.M.A. competitions with more than a few making All State, Area All State, High School, Jr. High School and Elementary All County Bands.
Many are working professional musicians today.
I’ve included a poster with my information.
Thank you for your consideration. Please feel free to call me any time.
