Looking forward to hear about your goals !



I would highly recommend Tomas - his passionate teaching makes you feel as though you are bringing life to your music, and not just following what’s written in front of you.


Thank you Tomas for your excellent work with Yuan and Lan. We are fortunate to have such a caring, gentle, patient, passionate and knowledgeable piano teacher like you. They are truly enjoying their time with you and have been making progress under your guidance.


Hi Tomas, My parents sent me a video recently of Summer playing when she stayed with them and we were impressed with how she has progressed in the few lessons she has had with you.


Tomas is exceptionally talented, patient, and dedicated, making each lesson a delightful and enriching experience.


Totally recommended! Tomas has an impressive understanding of diverse music styles and teaches improvisation in such a cool and methodical way. Each lesson is a blast!
