The first lesson is always a trial lesson.
If for any reason you are not happy we will fully refund any pending charges or help you find a new teacher. Your choice!
I always strive for my students to be as successful as they can. My teaching manner is friendly, informal, but structured and focussed. I guarantee within a few lessons you will feel like you are improving as a musician. I encourage all learning musicians to embrace all music. We will learn what you want to learn. I can prepare students for exams, auditions, performances, or if you just want to learn for fun then that's fine too!

Tom Gamble is an award winning young musician who is rapidly gaining a reputation as an exciting and versatile artist. Born in the suburbs of London UK he began performing from age 13 where he was inspired and encouraged at a local festival held by famed Australian steel string guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel.
