Thomas Finn is a guitarist of all sorts, but his focus is the classical guitar. He has studied guitar since his early childhood, but began studying more seriously at the 'Ye Olde Guitar Shoppe' with Jazz guitarist Willie Shay and classical guitarists Paul Wilson and Daniel Mastrofski. At Simpson College, he studied classical guitar with Aaron Powell. Recently, Thomas studied with classical guitarist Douglas Neidt in Kansas City.
Thomas gives lessons at the Ye Olde Guitar Shoppe in Urbandale, IA. Thomas performs for weddings and other events.
As an instructor at the Ye Olde Guitar Shoppe, Thomas' goal is to help his students of all ages have fun with music and develop the skills and technique needed to make guitar a life-long joy and endeavor.
"With the guitar, it is not so much listening to music as it is dreaming with music..."
Guitar is "a small orchestra, an orchestra seen through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars."
