August 2019 Update

I hope everyones been enjoying the summer. It's always a great sign when I hear that students take their guitars with them, because they can't handle being apart!

I've been playing guitar most of my life.

​I first played a guitar when I was 13. It was a horrible classical guitar that my Mum, who was a teacher, bought home from school. Pretty quickly I could pick out a few melodies I knew, and I was hooked.

More than twenty years later, I am still fascinated by the instrument, and I really enjoy passing on my knowledge and experience to new guitarists.

I am originally from Australia and moved to England in 2008. I eventually met my now wife and have settled with her and my son and daughter in Bromley. 

Let me know if I can help

My focus is absolute beginners and beginners but I can teach any level of student. I teach students from age 7 and upward.

I will base the lessons around what you need in the style of music you want to play. I provide an email summary after each lesson on what was covered and things to work on.

I have developed a number of courses that are suited to every level (and age of student). For info, click here:

✓  Do you want to learn the guitar?

✓  Have you been playing guitar for a while and are a bit stuck?

✓  Do you want to learn electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, folk, blues, rock, funk or classical?

​✓  Do you want to study grades?

I am a friendly Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) Bromley based teacher and I'm confident my one-on-one electric guitar lessons, acoustic guitar lessons and bass lessons can teach you all you want to know about the guitar. I teach all levels and all ages from kids to adults. 

About Lessons

Tom has been teaching me for a few months now and I'm delighted with the results.. the lessons have been hugely enjoyable and informative, and I've picked up a new hobby in my thirties!

Tom is great at listening, if there is something you would like to apply to a lesson then he will happily do this, he can take your favourite song and help you to be able to play it within a couple of lessons which is great value for money...I have had 15 lessons and will be having plenty more!!!!

Nathan Simpson

 I have tried other teachers in the past and found the experience of one-to-one learning too nerve-racking to benefit from lessons, but I find Tom's calm presence and ability to discern where the gaps are in my ability totally reassuring... 


​Tom has a vast musical knowledge and the ability to pass it on in a way that makes it fun to learn, and a fun experience. Our 11 year old also started taking lessons and has been improving her musical skills rapidly. She loves that the lesson is tailored for her with popular songs she loves, or new music that she finds cool.
