- About me:
Virtuoso, session musician and guitar teacher. He first started his guitar journey when he was six, taking private lessons while being inspired by virtuosos like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, Jason Becker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Vinie Moore and many others. At the age 17, he was already playing at an extremely high technical level and began serious musical studies in a private Jazz and Contemporary Music School in Katowice.
Later on, Tomasz started working as session musician, subbing for famous polish guitarists such as Zbigniew Krebs. He recorded guitar on many albums and has played with many stars of Poland's music industry. He has shared the stage with many of today's biggest names in the guitar world, including Marek Raduli (Budka Suflera, PR2), Zbigniew Krebs (Maryla Rodowicz, Chemia), Wojciech Hoffman (TURBO), Andy Równina, Scott Henderson, Steve Vai, Marco Sfogli, Neil Zaza and that's just a few from a long list.
Even with all of his work, Tomasz still maintained drive and his passion for composing music. In 2008, he released his first full length solo album titled "Not Made In China", which was distributed through the polish guitar magazine "Gitarzysta". This proved to be a turning point in his career. He soon started to conduct workshops and courses for different companies. He also focused on guitar instruction and methods, creating three systems for teaching guitar, "Breaking technical and theoretical barriers", "Two step guitar for beginners" and "7 Steps of Advancement".
In 2011, he released his second solo album, "Mr.Guitarist".

Moreover, he manages three of his own guitar schools including a prestigious one in Poland's capitol Warsaw, where he still works as an instructor. He travels to teach in other music schools all around his homeland as well.
