Student Reviews

Chester Springs, PA

My son has taken piano lessons with Tom for eight years. Tom is a very talented and dedicated instructor. He has motivated my son while teaching him technique and theory. We are very grateful to have a teacher who has provided such a strong foundation in music.

Downingtown , PA

Tom is a patient, friendly and expert teacher. His approach is both nurturing and fun, while his true love for music is inspiring. Eric Richards, Downingtown, PA

Berwyn, PA

Tom Ford has been teaching my daughter, Isabelle, piano lessons for over six years now. She has developed a real love of the piano during her time with Tom. He is always punctual and arrives ready to go with a defined lesson plan for each week. He listens to his students to make sure he is introducing things that they will want to do. I have recommended Tom to neighbors, relatives and friends and will continue to refer others to him. Maureen McHugh Berwyn, PA
