About Thomas T.
London-based music tuition for Drums & Percussion, Guitar, Ukulele and Music Theory.
Tom is a charismatic and driven full-time music tutor & touring multi-instrumentalist with a passion to share the knowledge he has acquired with his students.
Tom has been teaching privately and in schools for the last 7 years, most recently at Hampton High School in Hampton, St. Joseph's College in Streatham, Smallberry Green Primary School in Isleworth and at West Ashtead Primary School in Ashtead, Surrey.
He has had the privilege of working with students from a wide range of different backgrounds and ages, from 4-35, and has developed a strong understanding of how best to tailor his lessons to meet the bespoke needs of each of his tutees.
Tom teaches a variety of music both casually and graded (Trinity Guildhall, Trinity Rock & Pop or Rockschool) which include Guitar, Drums/ Percussion, Ukulele & Music Theory.
As a teacher, he always sets out to find the most enjoyable and effective method of learning for each and every one of his students. Tom has a strong belief that an open and welcoming approach to learning an instrument is the most beneficial way of bettering yourself and ensuring a bright and enduring interest in music going forward.
Whether it be casual, graded or specific techniques you desire to learn, Tom will provide a fun and interactive lesson plan whilst teaching what he feels to be at least the essential basics of music theory, all the while encouraging your own rehearsal schedule in order to gain the best possible results together.
Alongside teaching grades privately and in schools, he's spent the last decade touring the UK & Europe supporting prolific artists such as The Blockheads, The Kills, Starsailor, Sunset Sons, The Subways and Arcane Roots. In addition to tour supports, Tom has performed live at most of the UK’s largest festivals including Reading & Leeds, Isle of Wight, Y Not?, TRNSMT, Victorious, Sheffield Tramlines, The Alternative Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Margate Wonderland and Wilkestock to name a few. He's also recorded in professional studios across England as both a permanent and session musician at the likes of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, Monnow Valley, The Premises Studios and Livingston Studios.
Since moving to London in 2011, Tom has built strong relationships with a wide range of musicians and has gone on to create music featured on BBC Radio 2, Radio X, BBC Introducing, Classic Rock, Planet Rock etc.
All of the above experience has given him a unique perspective to his teaching style with a large emphasis on live performance, effective rehearsal practises and strong discipline, something that isn’t commonly taught amongst tuition at school.
