Driven by a deep-seated love and fascination with music, my life with the cello has led me to embrace it's rich classical tradition, while venturing forth into a wider musical world of the non-traditional for this great instrument. Let me play some Bach cello suites, a couple of jazz tunes and improvisations, let me rock out on the electric cello and create or discover something new every day, and I'll be happy.
I love performing solo, because the big, warm sound of the cello, which ranges from deep and rich to high and singing, makes it such a great solo instrument, and I also often collaborate with other talented professional musicians in a variety of instrumentations like:
violin and cello
string trio or quartet
jazz/Latin guitar and cello
jazz trio or quartet
As a classically trained composer with experience also in the realms of jazz, rock, and pop music, I have an uncommon ability to take almost any song or piece of music and adapt it to the cello alone or in combination with a wide variety of other instruments. If you have a special song you want to have performed for your event, just ask and I can make it happen.

Tom was very prompt to return emails and extremely accommodating with special requests for music played. Although he is available with other musicians if a different sound is desired, I hired him with his cello alone, and the sound was wonderful! He arrived on time, was dressed professionally, and was very flexible.Sent on 10/31/2007
Overall I would definitely recommend his services!
