Teacher: Tom Burda

See Classes Taught by This Teacher »

Mesmerized by the powerful guitar sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Tom first picked up the guitar at the age of 14. He spent his free time studying jazz, classical, and flamenco guitar at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. Then, he headed off to Boston to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where he earned a BA in Professional Music with concentrations on guitar performance and music business. Tom has a relaxed and patient style of teaching that makes all of his students comfortable to fully explore all the possibilities of making music. He is well-versed in a plethora of styles that can help anyone from very beginning students to advanced students learn to rock! Tom also writes and performs with his original jazz/rock band “Redux”. The band recently relocated from San Diego and has toured all over North America. Their debut album even spent several months at the top of the CMJ jazz Charts.

Attended: Guitar I: Absolute Beginners

I learned so much in the last ten weeks, and it is broken down in a way that makes it easy to learn. I tried teaching myself originally, but that didn't work very well, so I decided to take these classes. From the first class, you play actual songs and gain confidence in your playing. I would highly recommend this class to any beginner or anyone who is thinking of beginning guitar lessons.

Attended: Bass I: Bass Guitar for Absolute Beginners

Great course, though I wish it were more than one hour a week!
