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 teaching at RMSA since 2002, and this is my 30th year in education. 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, 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.
