Student of the Month - February 2021
Thom C - adult, cello
Thom has now played the cello for nearly 9 years and has decided he wants to be a fine cellist when he grows up! He works as a film editor and has two grown children who both studied music with Liz when they were kids. Thom has recently begun creating music with his children and learning how to improvise his cello part! He likes Bach, Mozart, The Beatles, and Elvis Costello, and his favorite piece so far is the 2nd movement of Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Cellos in G Minor. He believes music heals and expands the soul like medicine.
He likes politics, cycling, movies & television, cello, and music in general, which was his favorite subject in school. He’s best at being a dad and a husband. He believes the world would be a better place with more compassion, and he thinks babies are the best thing in the world. From the pandemic, he has learned the value of patience.
Check out this video of Thom's favorite piece, the Adagio from Vivaldi's Concerto for 2 Cellos in G Minor. We performed this piece together on our Spring 2017 recital along with pianist, Barbara Burgan.
