TOM BEEKMAN: Guitars

Originally from Hampton, VA, Tom began playing guitar at the age of ten but basically quit soon after.  He developed and interest in other instruments and briefly began to experiment with cello and percussion but soon realized that he did indeed prefer the guitar. He returned to seriously learning the instrument, eventually studying Classical Guitar at Virginia Commonwealth University and receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education.

When not performing with The Groove Motive, Tom is an elementary school music teacher, showing the next generation the art of “groove”. He also performs occasionally in the Richmond, Virginia area in both the Classical and Pop/Jazz genres.

Tom is an extremely talented guitarist combining a solid sense of rhythm and lead playing that puts the “groove” in The Groove Motive.
