Tom Poore: Classical Guitarist

Classical Guitar Lessons—Music for Your Event—Greater Cleveland Area









Music For Your Event

Weddings, dinner parties, you name it—anywhere refined background music is appropriate. The classical guitar is the perfect change of pace from the more traditional harp, takes up less room than a piano, and is less expensive than a string quartet. To learn more, click on the “MUSIC FOR YOUR EVENT” tab at the top of this page. There you’ll find the following info:

  • my hourly rate
  • what kinds of music I play
  • audio samples
  • frequently asked questions

If you have a question and can’t find the answer here, feel free to contact me. And if I’m already booked for the date of your event, all isn’t lost. I know many good guitarists in this area, and I may be able to help you find one.

thpClassical Guitar Lessons

I teach students of all ages and levels, whether serious hobbyist or aspiring professional. My goal is to help you get the best progress from your practice time, and to have fun with the process of learning to play the guitar. Also, I’ll help you build your musical skills so you can better understand what you hear and play. Finally, I aim to build your confidence and enjoyment in performing music for others.

To get started, allow me to introduce you to two former students I’ve had the privilege to work with:

sample 1: Colin Davin

sample 2: Krystin O’Mara

Next you can browse through the tabs at the top of this page. You’ll find not only find samples of my playing, but also articles on a wide range of topics. (I offer the articles as examples of how I explain things, which after all is an important part of teaching.) My hope is that after looking around here a bit, you’ll have a better feel for what you’re getting when you take me on as a teacher.
