Information About Tom - Cardiff teacher
This is how 3 referees rated Tom:
I'm a jazz pianist and music teacher based in Cardiff and Bristol, with a 1st Class Honours (BA) in Jazz Piano (Leeds College of Music) and an MA in Composition for Film and TV (Bristol University). I play regularly with my own jazz trio across the UK. I love sharing what I've learnt with people of all ages and am keen to inspire as many people as possible to play jazz! I'm equipped with a car for students who live further afield. If you're interested in having lessons in Jazz Piano/Composition please don't hesitate to get in touch.
I've been giving private piano tuition for the last four years. I've taught at the Yamaha Jazz School in Falmouth and at the Dordogne Jazz Summer School, giving one-to one lessons and workshops to larger groups. In Feb-March this year, I was employed by the Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival to provide Jazz/Swing workshops in over 30 Primary Schools in Bristol and South Gloucestershire, which was fun and LOUD!
I've always found that students learn best in a relaxed, informal atmosphere and I like to tailor my lessons according to the individual while still providing a good grounding of the basics. We all have common problems and challenges when it comes to playing the piano and I like to break these down and in a practical, fun way and I'm always looking to find new, creative ways of explaining things!
