About Tom

Pianist, teacher, accompanist and keyboardist for Doulize.

With over 7 years experience of piano tuition, I am a graduate of Bangor University, having obtained a first-class Bachelor of Music with Honours degree. I was awarded the Robert Pascall Award by the Bangor University School of Music for my edition of Philippe Basiron’s Missa de Franza, which was regarded as ‘reaching a professional standard’ and ‘readily publishable’ by Professor Christian Leitmeir, Associate Professor of Music at Magdalen College, Oxford. It has subsequently been published. During this time, I also became a piano and music theory teacher and completed an ABRSM Diploma in Instrumental Teaching. Prior to this, I was the accompanist and co-musical director of the Maletones Choir, Wales. This gave me plenty of experience in leading a choir as I attended weekly rehearsals to accompany and rehearse with the choir in preparation for concerts. I have also gained experience in planning and organising shows and musical productions as I was the musical director of the New Start Theatre Company, Wrexham. This involved organising and producing professional quality compilation shows within a short time limit, including Those Good Olde Days, A Handful of Songs, We’ll Keep a Welcome and A Dickens of a Christmas. Since moving to London, I have also gained experience as a music leader for Funky Monkey Keyboards. This involved leading keyboard and music theory group sessions of up to 8 children aged 5 – 11. I am also a graduate of the University of Greenwich where I gained a PGCE in Primary Education. As a passionate specialist in music, I also chose to concentrate on how music can benefit children with ASD during my Professional Enhancement module. I centred my research on the ‘triad of impairments’ and visited Elmhurst Primary School to observe how the specialist music teacher used music to develop the children’s interpersonal skills. Since graduating from the University of Greenwich, I have become a classroom teacher and music coordinator for a primary school based in London and a music leader for KeyNotes Music.
