Mr. Timothy Thompson
Welcome to the RMSA Piano Core! I am looking forward to another exciting year of working with talented piano students. I have been a teacher in Dorchester Two since 1994 and began teaching at RMSA in 2002. I have been a teacher for more than 30 years. I received my formal training at the University of South Carolina and VanderCook College of Music. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and was honored to be named the 1997 DuBose Middle School Teacher of the Year, the 2007 RMSA Teacher of the Year, and the 2008 Dorchester Two District Teacher of the Year.
I love all genres of music but have a special affinity for jazz. My favorite composers are Rachmaninoff, John Coltrane, and Thelonious Monk. In my spare time, I enjoy watercolors and reading biographies.
