Originally from New Jersey, 8- and 6-string guitarist Tom Lippincott grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but has made South Florida his home since 1988.  He has a bachelor's in jazz studies from the University of North Texas as well as a master's in jazz performance from the University of Miami.  Tom's teachers have included Randy Wimer, Jack Petersen, Dan Haerle, Phillip Hii, Rick Peckham, Randall Dollahon, Mick Goodrick, and jazz drum great Ari Hoenig.  

Tom currently teaches jazz guitar at Florida International University, Miami-Dade College, and Broward College.  As a performer, Tom has played throughout South Florida, the U.S., and the world as a solo guitarist and in many different group configurations.  He's had the opportunity to perform and/or record with such jazz luminaries as Ed Schuller, Don Friedman, Gary Campbell, John Stowell, Ben Monder, Jonathan Kreisberg, John Fedchock, and Dave Liebman.  He has also played on several recordings, including his own 2000 release, Painting the Slow Train Brown.  He also maintains a website,, which has further information, photos, and sound clips as well as essays, articles, and a schedule of upcoming appearances.

Young musicians are invited to play along some of the best musicians around, in an informal setting and with the common purpose of establishing a relationship around music and its history.

It’s also a lot of fun!  Be good at your instrument and be ready to play.  Be part of the audience or join in. Nicole Yarling leads the session.
