GuitarTommy’s founder, Tommy Wray, was inspired to play music when he was just 8 years old. He started with the drums. At 15, he got his first guitar and formed a band called Mirage. This changed his whole future.
Through his time in high school and college he played in many bands that had a variety of styles from rock, metal, jazz to country. During college he played mostly classical with a sprinkle of jazz. In the early 90’s he played the entire Phoenix band circuit, moving onto the late 90’s, he returned to school and began teaching elementary music methods for Scottsdale Schools. The positions included, but were not limited to, Band Director, Orchestra Director and also a general music instructor.
He continues to perform regularly in his local band.
