“After we moved back from Taiwan two years ago my daughter started having lessons with Mr. Shoebotham, and we have been very glad to have such a dedicated, experienced, and respectful teacher. My husband and I have seen the major improvements in our daughter’s playing, and we have recommended him to some of our friends!”  –Maria D.

“My 14-year-old son has been taking cello lessons with Thomas for over 2 years.  Within a few months under Thomas’ instruction my son not only started playing more challenging repertory, but also saw his technical skills improve tremendously. Thomas is a great teacher and mentor for my son and connects with him on a higher level than just a music teacher. One of my favorite things about him is that he pushes my son to do his best by paying attention to technical details while being very patient.   He is highly experienced and very professional and he would be an excellent choice for anyone looking for a cello teacher.”  –Mogjan S.
