Tom held down many artistic commitments in his youth, while studying the arts he participated in the National Youth Theatre and Orchestra.

As a young man, he continued to study music and trumpet and played with the London Baroque Orchestra and recorded sessions with various bands at DJM and Strawberry Studios.  He then spent a decade travelling, while working in private sector and government roles in the UK and Australia,

Tom has since semi-retired and now devotes his time to the DYMF and access to music for aspiring young musicians.
