Teacher Info

Hey, I’m Tom. I’m a DeMontfort University Music graduate with 10+ years of experience playing, writing, recording, and producing.

I can offer private tuition for Guitar and Music Theory, and can teach any and all styles and techniques at £25 Per Hour (Lessons paid for in advance).

Your current level can be anything including a complete beginner, so don’t worry if you’re not an experienced or fully fledged musician yet. I’d be happy to take you on still.

I have a flexible musical background, having been part of Leicester’s music scene for roughly 15 years. I have lead and performed with a variety of bands, ranging from pop to rock, metal, and electronic and experimental music.

I am a seasoned multi-instrumentalist and producer. I can confidently teach how to write, compose and arrange for a range of other instruments including Bass, Ukulele, and MIDI & Hardware Synthesisers. I am also able to offer basic tuition for Audio workstations including Logic Pro, Logic X, Ableton, and Ableton Live.

Whether you want to become a professional musician, or just play your favourite songs for fun, I’ll be more than able to help you reach your goal. I can teach any and all topics. Including Grades, Sight Reading and Improvisation. 

I’m currently based in the Leicester area and can also offer lessons over Skype and Zoom if you’re currently self-isolating.

Olly, my 8 year old, is really enjoying his guitar lessons with Tom.

Tom is a talented musician with high standards and a calm and patient style. He pushes Olly to try new things and improve his technique at every lesson, and Olly has really responded to this approach. Very happy to recommend.
