Private Lessons


Tom has over 30 years experience giving lessons at his private studio. He’s taught youngsters and adults starting from scratch (no pun intended!) and adults who played in school and want to pick it back up again; coached advanced players for youth orchestra auditions, college scholarship auditions, Junior Miss pageants and fiddle contests. He is available to string players throughout the Mobile & Baldwin County areas.

  • Beginning, Intermediate & Advanced students, ages 10 and up
  • Adult Beginners always welcome
  • Learn Classical violin or Fiddle Styles (note-reading a plus) or both!
  • Special coaching lessons for auditions, competitions, etc.
  • Mandolin, Irish Tenor Banjo & Guitar lessons also available

In addition, Tom is a certified Mark O’Connor Violin Method teacher (one of only four in Alabama) and has worked and performed with a number of the teachers at Mark’s acclaimed String Camps.

“The art of teaching is the art of communication and that’s something that you have.  The ability to bring someone out of the unknown and into the known is a gift.  It’s not something that everybody can do.  I can see that you enjoy it.  I don’t know if you enjoy it because you’re good at it or your good at it because you enjoy it but either way it’s a blessing.  I get a great deal of satisfaction when I see the light come on in somebody’s head.  I know you do too.” -Tim McKaig, Hattiesburg, MS (student)
