Thomas’s extensive teaching has provided him with experience in ABRSM and Trinity School Exam preparation. He has also trained and produced many drama and theatre productions.

“Although I do enjoy working through exam material with students, I am particularly good with beginners and older players. Many have found their way into to music and are not chasing certificates. Therefore currently my youngest student is a 9 year old recorder player who loves Miles Davis. My oldest is a clarinetist of 75 who wants to be Acker Bilk!”
