Tom Brookes BA (Hons)

Drums, Guitar,

Tom Brookes first started learning the guitar at the age of 10, played his first proper concert with the BBC Philharmonic aged just 13. During his time at university, he studied both classical and jazz-style guitar but following graduation, as a performer he returned to his first love – blues guitar. He started playing and teaching guitar professionally aged 18, and has taught all abilities, from beginner to advanced, preparing many students for Rockschool exams. Many of his former students now work in the music industry, including the country’s youngest ever Rockschool examiner.
Teaching is a huge passion of Tom’s – he offers an extremely varied approach to teaching, tailoring lessons to the needs of the individual student. He teaches electric, acoustic, classical and bass guitar to post-Grade 8 standard.
