I've been seeing Tom for a few months now as my lessons with a prior tutor had become stale and I felt I needed to look elsewhere to progress. In the short duration I've been having lessons with him I've learnt more than I thought I was capable of and my enthusiasm has returned ten-fold to the point where my guitar travels to work with me! Tom's biggest asset is not his talent, which is clearly in abundance, it's his natural teaching ability and enthusiasm, no question is too stupid and no matter how long it takes you to grasp a concept he's still smiling with no signs of losing interest. I stumbled upon Tom by random chance, if you're looking for a talented and great guitar teacher then he should be your first choice as his love of the guitar and teaching is infectious!

Tom Toomey has and continues to be one of the largest inspirations in my musical career; he has gone above and beyond any expectation I had of his teaching, propelling me through all my guitar grades 1 - 8. The way he plays, writes and creates on the guitar coupled with his driven professional yet warming personality has shaped me as the musician I am today and I am proud to call him a close friend.

This guy is a great guitarist and guitar teacher. Me and a mate of mine went to some of his classes at Yeovil College and enjoyed them so much we took another class afterwards. I would recommend if you are thinking of having lessons.

Tom has great skill, a huge passion for music and a warm, laid back personality that is great for teaching. I would recommend him to anyone - beginner or intermediate - he will structure lessons to suit your needs and preferred style. I always come away feeling inspired and enthused - cheers Tom!

Tom is a really great guitar teacher, his enthusiam for music is inspiring. My Son had guitar lessons at school but hated them. Ben really wanted to learn the guitar but needed to be taught by someone with a love of music. Ben now loves the lessons and plays his guitar at every opportunity, even at 7am on Sunday mornings...many thanks Tom for all the good work.
