Testimonials

Few musicians in the world are as disciplined, intuitive, and luminous as Alexander Tom. He does not hoard his knowledge; he wants to pass on as much as he possibly can. He is the kindest and most giving person I have ever had the privilege of working with - there are few like him!

Alexander used his extensive knowledge to translate vocal technique in a way I could easily understand while working with him as a Music Director. He has a clear, concise way of explaining the end goal so a singer/performer understands the road map of how to produce results. Alexander is personable and quick to befriend so you have an amicable relationship right away, making it a comfortable environment to try and try again.

As a vocal coach and music educator, Alexander has the ability to communicate complex concepts in a manner that is concrete and easy to understand. He is also willing and able to experiment with the unique vocal instrument of each individual student.
— Ashley Knaack, BFA - Shenandoah Conservatory 2018
On top of being a superbly professional person to work with, Mr. Tom is an incredibly gifted musician and teacher. I was in complete awe of both the sheer amount of knowledge Mr. Tom had, and his own personal skill with having to create arrangements, modify keys instantly, and play some of the most complicated musical scores in the musical theatre canon without fail.
— Jacob Wasson, BFA - Point Park University 2018
He communicates effectively and clearly and treats his work as a two way street; he can call the shots and be direct with his choices all the while respecting and encouraging feedback from whomever he is coaching or directing. He is poised and fun! He has a history or wonderful vocal technique that coincides and supports what I’ve been working on in lessons. He treats the voice beautifully.
