Introduction: Hi there! :) For online lessons & limited in-person lessons (Greenwich, CT area & NYC) You're invited to a FREE trial at... Mindful Music Lessons. Because every artist needs a mentor™ Music can be transformative when you surround yourself with the right people; collaborators & teaching-artists, etc. Balancing good vibes & discipline takes work, but hey! '...practice makes progress!' We're here to share light with whoever calls & tells us the challenges they're facing right now in the music space. Having guided 1000+ students on 12+ different instruments since 2011 as a multi-genre Producer / Composer / Lyricist and an NYU alum, it's clear to me that listening for the student's biggest needs of the day and moment is the best way to support their long-term musical journeys. I create custom video assignments sometimes & often annotate homework so students are fully equipped to play independently, between lessons. ...easier to navigate. Studying the craft with a Mindful Music Mentor™ cultivates an even deeper appreciation for the power of music. You could play in Rock bands, Jazz bands, Choirs, Musical theater troupes, Symphony & String Orchestras, make your own beats. Music is the soundtrack of life! Our students live primarily in: •CT, NY, NJ, MA, PA, RI, DE, VA, GA, NC, FLA, ID, KY •your zip code soon? We proudly work with children (ages: 7+), students with special needs, students of all abilities, seniors, veterans, and worship leaders. Looking forward to hearing what inspires you most about music and cultivating THAT. Feel free to contact me anytime to chat about the next steps. best, -Tom Stroll founder / multi-instrumentalist

I have been taking songwriting and piano lessons with Tom for almost 9 months. I am an adult, and I was new to songwriting, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be taken seriously. I quickly realized that he works with me just like anyone else. Also, I played the piano as a child, and I decided I wanted to focus more on that, I now realize that I love playing the piano, and I don’t remember liking it this much when I was a child. I sometimes get frustrated, and Tom has really helped me to have a more positive mindset. I would recommend Tom and his school to anyone looking for a teacher for their child or for themselves.

Our 8 year old works with Russell who is great with kids! He's patient and encouraging and knows a lot about music! Our little one has learned so much and shown improvement since she's been taking lessons with Russell. Highly recommend!

Tom has been a wonderful guitar and piano teacher for my 14 year old daughter. He has demonstrated patience and care for her as a student and her improvement is noticeable to the whole family. The homework is thoughtful and inspiring, and he manages to help her think about the music in a new way. Highly recommend!
