• The Scots Church Melbourne (map)

A musical jack of all trades, Tom began his creative journey as a drummer before a chance encounter with the pipe organ set his life on a different course. Shunning the glamour of a career as a drummer for the ascetic life of an organist, he has already spent more time in church services than most will in their entire lives. In addition to his work as an organist, he is active as a harpsichordist, consort singer, and conductor. Equally at home in front of an ensemble, holding everything together in the continuo section, or creating magical sounds up in the organ loft, Tom’s musical voice draws upon these myriad influences to share the joys of music with all who open their hearts and minds.
