My time spent learning from Tom Burchill was supremely valuable, and an integral part of my growth as a player and composer.”

Mark Letteiri of Snarky Puppy




An excellent, motivational teacher, Tom is proud of the students he has had the privilege to teach. Altogether, his former students have won more than 10 Grammy awards and have gone on to play with such artists as Snarky Puppy, Count Basie Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis, The Lincoln Center Band, Leon Bridges, Miranda Lambert, Kirk Franklin, Toby Keith, Erika Badu, Prince, Snoop Dogg, Frank Foster, Mumford and Sons, Tedeschi Trucks, and Sheryl Crow.  

Private lessons can cover technique, solo development & improvisation, musicianship, sight reading, songwriting, and more.



Tom Burchill is a very special person to so many. He prepared me for the intense music study at UNT and the real world of playing music professionally. Not a day goes by that I don't think of something Tom taught me. Thank you sir!”
