  • Gladstone technique
  • Moeller technique
  • Applied Moeller (Tap, Up, Full, Down)
  • Finger and push-pull technique
  • Latin, Afro-cuban, Jazz, Reggae, Rock and more

Centrally located

Tom’s purpose built studio resides in the heart of Wellington. Just down the road from L’Affaire and Moore Wilson’s on College Street, his studio is easily accessed from public transport and parking is also abundant on nearby Cambridge Terrace.
