Information About Tom - Mitcham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Tom:
I am a trumpet player, and what I love most about my job is the range and variety that being a trumpet player allows me to do. I have enjoyed extensive experience of playing in all styles and genres from chamber orchestras, symphony orchestras and brass bands through to brass quintets and chamber ensembles, big band, jazz and lead trumpet, plus considerable experience of solo performance, historical performance and recording. My playing has taken me all around the UK and Europe, and even as far as Hong Kong and Malaysia. Being no exception to human nature, however, I have my favourites - my passions lying with musical theatre, historical performance and education.
Of course, I am all for musicians to grow into fine professionals, but I passionately believe that brass playing is much more important than getting set up for a career in the music business. Learning an instrument offers rewards for anyone of any age and any walk of life, enhancing performance at school and work and expanding one's social life. I have met so many great people by playing an instrument and learnt so many things. Most importantly, it’s a huge amount of fun and so worthwhile.

I have been teaching the trumpet and other brass instruments professionally for 10 years. As well as private teaching, I teach at Graveney School, Donhead Preparatory School and The White House Preparatory School, and my students range in age from 4 to 78!
I believe that it is essential to give students a rounded musical education. As well as performance and technique, my lessons incorporate aural skills and music theory, as well as giving the student enough understanding as necessary of music history and the history of their instrument. The most important thing, however, is to learn to simply enjoy creating music.
