Tom Carroll first realized his love for playing the guitar after reading an article in Guitar World about the young blues phenoms Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepard.

He started specializing in blues, learning the music of such artists as Albert Collins, B.B. King, Magic Sam, Albert King, and many more.?

After high school, he took his music studies to the next level enrolling at Berklee College of Music. While there, he dove deeper into blues while also discovering many other genres such as Country, Funk, and Classic Rock. Tom studied with Tomo Fujita, Mike Williams, Dan Bowden, Scotty Johnson, Julian Kasper, Jon Finn, while at Berklee. Tom also became friends with another music hero, a Boston blues legend, Monster Mike Welch, a man Tom has gotten inspiration from.?Tom currently plays in a Boston blues band called "Gracie Curran & The High Falutin' Band" which was voted one of the Top 20 Best Bands of Boston 2013. They also participated in the International Blue Challenge, winning the Boston chapter which got them a spot in Memphis, TN where they competed against over 70 bands from around the world.

Besides his busy playing career with his band, Tom has enjoyed teaching the guitar at the Fabulous School for over seven years. His many students appreciate his knowledge and passion for music and his ability to make learning the guitar fun.?

In addition to the guitar, Tom also teaches the Ukulele, teaching songs in the styles of pop and traditional Hawaiian music, as well as theory, technique, and reading.
