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.

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
