The First Note
Opened in 2015 when TF returned to Suffolk after completing an accelerated Bachelors in Music Performance at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music.
Wanting to share his passion and reinvigorate the local music scene from the ground up, he set up a studio and started teaching.
