Thomas Knecht is a passionate teacher with over a decade of teaching experience. He began playing violin at age 5 and quickly developed an ear for music. His mother would laugh about a young Thomas falling asleep during Houston Symphony concerts, telling friends that "he could still hear every note." Throughout his youth, he learned drums, guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, and voice. Thomas' passion for voice was intensified after his 8th Grade performance of Your A Good Man Charlie Brown. As Snoopy, Thomas was applauded as a natural talent.
While attending high school at Strake Jesuit, Thomas joined the prestigious Triple Trio which performed at the Texas Renaissance Festival, Carnegie Hall in New York, and toured Italy. These experiences helped equip Thomas for his undergrad at the University of Denver, Lamont School of Music. There, he performed in The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro, The Gondoliers, The Princess and the Pea, along with dozens of choral performances and solo recitals featuring French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, and English repertoire.
In his professional career, Thomas taught Music and Theater for over a decade for YES Prep Public Schools. His knowledge of musical theory, sight reading, and vocal pedagogy offer an excellent foundation for any musician. Today, Thomas performs at the Church of St. John the Divine which will be touring to Salisbury Cathedral during the summer of 2024.
