Thomas Fetch – Guitar

Thomas Fetch Grace Note Music Studio Growing up, Thomas always wanted to be a guitarist. He would pick up the guitar off and on many times throughout his younger years but always ended up walking away feeling frustrated and defeated. It wasn’t until well into his adult life that he decided to give the guitar one more try. This time around, he knew not to become frustrated when it wasn’t an overnight success, and grew to appreciate the patience and discipline that is developed through the learning-process. Once he had a firm grasp on the fundamentals, he began studying complex classical and flamenco styles, working independently and under Spanish guitarist, Peter Orozco Corrall. Thomas has now been playing the guitar for 25 years, opening for larger names such as Richard Smith, but prefers the more intimate setting of coffeehouses and private parties. He enjoys writing original music and has recorded two albums under the performing name, “Slugfingers”.

Studying guitar as an adult has given Thomas an advantage in being able to communicate his knowledge to students of all ages. Where children are more likely to naturally absorb the information, adult minds are already fully-developed and require different methods of learning. For the past ten years, he has taught acoustic and electric guitar to students from ages five to 70 and has volunteered as an instructor for programs that aid the mentally-disabled. As a foundation, students will be taught basic music theory and how to play principle chords while building a repertoire of familiar pieces and developing their own styles. Thomas believes in the musical ability of every individual and is committed to helping his students fully understand how to use the guitar as a “tool” for self-expression.
