Information About Thomas - Bath teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Thomas:
Hello, I'm Thomas! I have graduated from Bath Spa University with a 2:1 in BA Hons music and an Mmus in Performance gaining a merit. During my masters, I won the Jennifer Skellett award for performance which was a great honour. I have been singing since the age of 9 under the tuition of Rebecca Moseley-Morgan.
I have recently won the recital class at Oxford music festival and will be making my operatic debut with Winslow hall opera in their production of Verdi's Il Trovatore.
Previous credits include: soloist with Brackley Jubilee Choir in Beethoven’s Mass in C and excerpts from Haydn’s Creation, four years with principal roles with Oxfordshire Youth Music Theatre; At Bath Spa he has played Mercury in Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, Damon in Acis and Galatea and First sailor in Dido and Aneaus, Rodolfo and Cavaradossi in a concert version of Puccini excerpts of La Bohéme and Tosca, Joe in Gershwin’s Blue Monday and lead roles in Rauzzini’s Priamo e Tisbe and Dibdins Ephesian Matron which were both performed in Bath festival in 2017.
I have also sung solos in Thomas Linley Junior’s Shakespeare’s ode in the old Theatre Royal in Bath, tenor solo in Carl Orf’s Carmina Burana in a gala concert and tenor solo in Rossini’s Petie messe solonelles.
I will be continuing my study for a PhD at Royal Holloway Universty so I can pursue my academic interest in adolescent vocal development. This is my specialist area which I will use my knowledge of the anatomy and functionality of the voice to see if puberty presents more issues in terms of tuning for boys rather than girls.
I currently teach and handful of young adults and up who have come to me seeking to improve their technique to take back to their respective style of singing.
I teach in a way that applies to many different styles of singing, not just classical.
I studied a module on teaching for my bachelor's degree in which I was awarded a first.
I have been accepted to study for a PhD at Royal Holloway University in adolescent voice science comparing the effects of puberty in terms of tuning in boys and girls.
This is because I believe there needs to be more understanding with young singers and a lot can be fixed with good technique. It is my aim to pass on proper information based on scientific evidence to better inform the next generation of young singers.
