Through his work at the Mary Pappert School of Music, Tom has been helping to foster the lives and careers of student musicians for over 25 years. Tom's own musical journey began with the sounds of the Beatles, Motown, rock, blues, and folk music in the early days of hi-fi stereo. Tom took to the drums as a child and began playing guitar in his teens, later developing an appreciation for jazz and classical music and a love for choral singing. Through the years, Tom has remained active in music as a performer, teacher, and audio/recording technician.
Tom currently resides in Penn Hills with his wife, Amy.
