About Thomas

Thomas Crouch grew up in Virginia and started piano lessons at 8 years old. When he was 14, he moved to Portland, Oregon and studied with internationally renowned pianist Lena Vozheiko-Wheaton, former professor at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Under her tutelage he placed 3rd nationally for MTNA high school division, received honorable mention in the 2007 national Modern Music Festival and received the Young Artist Achievement award for the state of Washington.

Thomas attended University of Puget Sound where he studied under Dr. Tanya Stambuk and graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance. While at UPS Thomas placed first alternate in the 2010 MTNA young artist solo division. He performed for numerous masterclasses and participated in premiering several works for the 2011 National Composers Symposium hosted by University of Puget Sound. With cellist Christina Wu, the duo took top prize in the Beatrice Hermann young artist competition and were asked to perform for masterclasses held by the Tokyo String Quartet and composer Daron Hagen.

As a soloist Thomas has been invited to perform for Seattle’s Northwest Artist series hosted by Steinway and at the Perugia International Music Festival. As a pedagogue, Thomas taught for University of Puget Sound’s Community Music department. Thomas was a founding teacher of Musicologie in Westerville (OH), where he was the lead piano teacher, created a chamber music program for young children, and helped develop the daily activities for the school’s “Musicologie Jr.” program.

Thomas recently earned his Master of Music in Piano Performance and is currently pursuing his doctorate degree at James Madison University in Virginia.
