NOW ACCEPTING STUDENTS

I am currently available for Classical Composition and Jazz Master Classes and would be delighted to work with you either in person or through a long-distance arrangement. No long term committment is required. All fees are customized and negotiable. 

My studio is west of Philadelphia and north of Wilmington, Delaware, in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. If that location is not convenient, I suggest we try to work long distance.

ABOUT RON THOMAS

Ron Thomas is recognized for the scope and breadth of his influences and interests. He entered the Manhattan School of Music in 1959 where he studied composition with Vittorio Gianinni, Nicolas Flagello, and Ludmila Ulehla. During that time, he also studied privately with M. William Karlins and later with Karlheinz Stockhausen at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Heavily influenced by the music of Miles Davis and Bill Evans, Ron continued his studies in Composition with Stefan Wolpe and Raoul Pleskow at C.W.Post College, Long Island University where he received his Master's Degree. The years since have been an extended elaboration upon these foundational elements through composing, jazz performance, recording, teaching and writing about music.
