Thomas is a living proof of the wonderful ways of Montessori; he attended Montessori as a child and is currently pursuing his masters in music composition at the University of Arkansas. He received his undergraduate degree in music composition from the University of Indianapolis where his studied with John Berners. He studied saxophone and clarinet with Harry Miedema, studied guitar with Thomas Tudek of Indiana University. His CD “Great American Standard” was recorded on the “Lost Chord Records” label and is set to release late in 2011. He has worked for Princess Tours and the Salmon Bake in Juneau, Alaska playing guitar for tourists. With all lessons we will work on a total music understanding and appreciation through listening, exploration and composition. I love when my students compose!
