    Harmony and Counterpoint Lessons With Tom Harmony and Counterpoint Lessons With Tom

    Hello!

    I am an Amsterdam based musician offering tutorials in piano, trumpet, cornet, harmony, counterpoint, theory, and other general music-y things in English! I’m also available to direct rehearsals and concerts.

    Currently a masters composition student under Richard Ayres and Willem Jeths at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, I have a Bachelor of Music (Hons) Composition degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where I completed all of the harmony and counterpoint electives, and prior to this was accepted into Chetham’s School of Music as a joint principle study composer and trumpet player. I gained my ABRSM grade 8 piano at this time, after obtaining my grade 8 cornet 3 years prior. I have won multiple awards, including the BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers’ Competition in 2013, and my varied and diverse music has been played by ensembles such as the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Red Note Ensemble, and European Youth Brass Band; broadcast on radio and television both nationally in the UK and internationally; and performed for royalty and at events such as the BBC Proms and the Total BWF Badminton World Championships.

    Furthermore, I am also passionate about conducting others works as well as my own, rehearsing ensembles of all standards, ages, and varieties, organizing events, as well as tutoring – a former pupil gaining a place at a prestigious specialist music school in the UK before going on to study at a conservatoire. I have been described as clear and inspiring, being able to give students confidence in their work. “Tom kept me stimulated and inspired in moments when I would run out of ideas, and created structure and direction in a moment when I felt unsure with what to do.” I also enjoy my work as a BBC Proms Inspire ambassador, which involves assisting at workshops, advising and mentoring young composers.

    A continuation of music theory, students will and learn to write chorales in the style of J.S. Bach, before moving on to fugues and looking at the ways in which other composers have used harmony. I also have knowledge of jazz harmony and am able to discuss this with students if they wish.

    Please contact me to chat about your (child’s) musical goals and ambitions. I am able to travel to homes and offices and have a flexible schedule to meet your needs! I have also taught over Skype in the past, where there’s the option of screen sharing, making it possible to demonstrate things on the screen.

    Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

    About Me

    Biography

    Following success in the 2013 BBC Inspire Young Composers’ Competition, Thomas – who is 23 and from Huddersfield – began studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and recently completed a Bachelor of Music (Hons) Composition degree under the tutelage of Professor Rory Boyle. Prior to this, he attended Chetham’s School of Music and was awarded the Douglas Steele Award for Composition. He now studies under Richard Ayres and Willem Jeths at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

    The “joyfully exuberant” (Anna Meredith) ‘Recomposed Baroque’ was performed by members of the Aurora Orchestra at the BBC Proms and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in 2013. Subsequently ‘Cairo’ was commissioned for members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. More recent projects have included a work to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday on behalf of the Holme Valley Parish Council, last year 'Lux' was rehearsed and recorded by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and his music was used as
    part of the TOTAL BWF Badminton World Championships and Scottish Open Badminton Grand Prix. In February 2016 musicians joined together to perform in a concert containing a selection of his chamber music and he has worked with ensembles such as Red Note and the European Youth Brass Band. At the age of 15 he arranged music for Britain’s Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

    Conducting is another passion of Thomas’; he enjoys directing his own works as well as others. He also plays trumpet, cornet, piano, and has appeared as a percussionist.

    As a tutor, Thomas has been described as clear and inspiring and is able to give his students confidence in their work. “Tom kept me stimulated and inspired in moments when I would run out of ideas, and created structure and direction in moments when I felt unsure with what to do.” He is a BBC Proms Inspire ambassador, regularly assisting at workshops, advising and mentoring young composers.

    Thomas is currently generously supported by Moose International.

    “We got shivers down the spine from that fanfare” (Stephen Threlfall)


    What inspires me?

    As a composer I am inspired by many people from many different eras. I'm currently researching orchestral music by HK Gruber, a living Austrian composer and my current composition work includes experimenting with jazz harmony. Another modern composer who has inspired me is Alfred Schnittke. I enjoy his harsh juxtaposition of styles.

    When learning about traditional tonal harmony and counterpoint, the music of J.S. Bach is the place to start and it has had a big influence on my contemporary concert work, although of course there are many composers - Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Reger, to name a few - who followed Bach who developed tonal language further and used it in different ways.

    As a player I play a wide range of music from different eras. A big part of my background was playing cornet in brass bands, although I have also played orchestral, big band, and chamber music. My favourite trumpet player is probably Allen Vizzutti, a very versatile classical and jazz American musician, with phenomenal technical abilities.

As a composer I have a diverse range of skills. Whilst most of my work is contemporary classical concert music, I have a good grounding in tonal harmony and am experienced in writing music more typical of past eras and for events such as opening ceremonies and medals ceremonies. I also have knowledge of jazz, having worked in this genre. Lessons comprise of me examining the student's work, discussing it with them (how they've written it, what decisions they've made, what they wish the music to do and be), as well as discussing any suggestions I have to further enhance the effectiveness of the music and their ideas. Lessons can also involve examining works by other composers, giving the student inspiration and knowledge, as well as learning about different compositional techniques, which can include ways to deal with harmony, rhythm, texture, structure, and development of ideas.

Music Theory is important to all classical musicians. It not only compliments their practical activities, it is essential in being able to read and understand the music they play. Topics covered will include clefs, time signatures (simple, compound, irregular, and irrational - e.g. 7/6 - for students who want a challenge), chords, keys, rhythms, and harmony. Once the basics are mastered, students begin to focus more on harmony and counterpoint, examining and learning to write chorales in the style of J.S. Bach, before moving on to fugues and looking at the ways in which other composers have used harmony. I also have knowledge of jazz harmony and am able to discuss this with students if they wish.

In 2016 I began giving private lessons, and built up a group of over 20 pupils ranging from 5 year olds to adults.

Approach to Teaching: My philosophy in Music Tuition is to improve the student's technique through exercises and pieces which they enjoy. I also provide a general music education as I believe in a holistic approach, and increasing their passion for music which will increase their motivation for practice and improvement.

Would you like to play folk music, to sing pop songs or walk through a more classical path? I have experience in many different areas, having sang and played folk music for many years and also studied in Conservatorium for a long time. I can also help you with music theory, from the most basic beginning introduction to music to advanced solfeggi and rhythms. I graduated in Musicology and studied Music Pedagogy in Portugal before moving to Amsterdam. For little children I can also combine the playing of the instrument with more didactic activities mixed with body movement and dance! In the past I taught how to play and sing, from little children (4 years old) to adults with around 60 years old. I can adapt easily to your needs! And most of all, you will fall in love with music, all kinds of music and have loads of fun!

    Bassoon (Baroque/Classical and Modern), Theory, and Composition Lessons
    I am a bassoonist and composer from Australia who is available to tutor in Amsterdam. I teach not only the ordinary modern bassoon but also historical performance, whether that would be on period instruments or otherwise. I am also available to tutor music theory and composition for all levels. I have won prizes in both bassoon and composition, including the Royal Schools Music Club Anniversary Scholarship, the Bendat Family Foundation Composition Scholarship, the Royal Over-Seas League Arts Travel Scholarship, and the Catholic Arts Chapman Scholarship. I have also been part of a variety of ensembles, including the MAPLE wind quintet, Tura New Music's Breaking Out Ensemble, and orchestras in Australia. I have had the incredible opportunity to write and arrange for many ensembles with very different instrumental combinations such as Piñata Percussion, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of St George's College, and Trinity College, Perth. As a teacher, I strive to develop students to become inspired by music and to always seek a deeper understanding and appreciate of music. I am open to teaching any student so long as they can hold an instrument comfortably!
