Private or group lessons


Offering lessons on Drum set, Jazz Combo, or general music help on any instrument (including Hip Hop MC's). Thomas approaches ALL lessons regardless of musical genre from an initial perspective of second set of ears and eyes. Most of the time, another pair of ears can hear something different. Thomas wants students to rethink what they do when they make music and why they are doing it. Does what you play serve the music?
