About Tom Phillips

A guitarist since the summer of 1983, Tom is an international recording artist appearing on more than twenty recordings to date, having performed and recorded with Walpyrgus, Solstice (UK), Twisted Tower Dire, and Brave amongst others - however his primary role since 1989 has been serving as the primary composer and leader of While Heaven Wept, who account for many of the aforementioned releases. WHW have also toured throughout Europe and much of the United States as well. 

 
In addition to his real world performing, composing, recording, and music business experience, he has also been teaching guitar and bass for 25 years - 12 of which at Music And Arts - with a strict emphasis upon tradition, technique, and true understanding. This three-prong approach incorporates music theory, technical exercises for physical development, and ear training. 
 
Though much of his own experience is related to Heavy Rock and Metal, his instruction is rooted in time-tested methods that insure anyone will be able to play whatever they desire - provided they put in the time and effort required, and follow the maps he has designed over the years, building upon his own years of private study and higher education. 
 
Whatever you aspire to play in the long run, he can empower you with the tools necessary to achieve this!
