Personal Description:

Thomas began playing the piano at the age of seven, and he enrolled in Chetham’s School of Music in 2007 where he became a pupil of Simon Bottomley. During his time in Chetham’s, Thomas also received coaching from celebrated pianists such as Murray McLachlan and Peter Lawson.

He continued his studies in the Royal Northern College of Music, first with Stephen Savage at undergraduate level, and then Sally Ann Macleod, who had studied with Vlado Perlemuter, a distinguished interpreter of Chopin. Thomas has a particular affinity with works of Chopin, a composer which endlessly fascinates and moves him. He had also received coaching from visiting artists such as Michel Beroff and Phillip Cassard.

Apart from his interests in performing, under the tutelage of Helen Krizos, Thomas has developed a passion for paedagogy and enjoys immensely the responsibility of teaching and inspiring the next generation of pianists.

Thomas has graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music and now works as a freelance musician and teacher in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Tutoring Experience:

I graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a Master’s degree in Solo Performance, having completed my Bachelor’s with Honours at the same institution. During my course at the RNCM I have studied Pedagogy (teaching) with Helen Krizos for three years and have worked with students in a primary school, music service (One Education) and one-to-one teaching. I have been awarded an LRSM diploma in Piano Performance and I am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians as well as European Piano Teacher’s Associations. I have taught piano for ten years and to pupils of all levels.

Tutoring Approach:

From beginner to advanced, I am happy to teach all levels at the pace you want – whether for fun or to do well in ABRSM exams. Whatever your requirements, I strive to teach you the way you want to be taught. If you have other requests such as a piece you have always wanted to learn, or perhaps a short intensive course in preparation for an exam, I can definitely accommodate as well.

I teach at my home in Beswick, Manchester. Pupils will be playing on a Yamaha C2 Grand piano and parents are welcome to observe the lesson/take notes.
