Thomas’ Music Room
Welcome to Thomas’s Music Room, my new interactive concept for music and children. Each week, we will release a 10-12 minute episode to inspire children to experience music in new, fun and interesting ways.
With this channel, we hope to open a new kind of dialogue with children (and other childlike souls) about music: about the music I love, music of all genres, but with a focus on classical music. With co-founder and co-editor Alissa Rossius, we wish to offer children a different way to discover music – and an interactive one. We invite all of you to share with us what music inspires you to create. It may be a poem or story, a video, music, dance, art, photography, or indeed any art form that may be shown online! Share your creations with us on our new Facebook page, or on Instagram with #thomasmusicroom.
Each week we will explore the works of different composers, starting with my first classical music love: Beethoven. The initial episodes will focus on Beethoven’s symphonies, Béla Bartók, Carl Nielsen and conducting. The music is illustrated by my own pictures of imaginary animals that I began drawing when I was child and listening to music. Throughout the series, we will be joined by musical friends – soloists and composers – who will perform and share their own childhood experiences with music.
Many of the episodes will feature my own recordings, conducting orchestras around the world. I want to thank Warner Classics, BIS, Simax, Dacapo, Onyx, Naxos and many more who have generously supported using these recordings in Thomas’ Music Room.
We can’t wait to begin our musical adventure together. We look forward to seeing you at the Thomas’ Music Room’s YouTube channel, opening Friday, 28 May!
