Tom Febonio

Tom Febonio was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1950 and began his career in music at the age of sixteen playing the electric bass in a rock and roll band. This kept him occupied for about a decade, during which time he took up songwriting and recording, traditional music and jazz. As an adult he studied piano with Edith M. Mehaffey, and the viola, theory and conducting with Joseph A. Leary. Tom’s compositions to date are mostly tonal and structured along classical or romantic lines, and include solo and chamber pieces for piano, guitar, mandolin, strings and winds. His works are published by ALRY Publications, Forton Music, VCello Publications, and Guitar Chamber Music Pres. His music has been recorded by a number of artists, including Duo Ahlert & Schwab, Sherry Finzer & Darin Mahoney, Suzanne Williams, Jack Garvey, and Grove Street.
