Unlocking Musical Mastery

Thomas has a prolific background in musical education. In the early nineties, he graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA, under the supervision of Grammy award winner Robert Freedman. He has taught and lectured at several significant musical institutions, including Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and “L’Aula de Musica Moderna i Jazz” of The Barcelona Liceo Conservatory.

In 1995, Thomas Lorenzo was commissioned by the Spanish Society of Authors to write the first Spanish textbook on arranging and orchestration. The textbook, titled “El Arreglo, Un Puzzle de Expresión musical,” is now in its third edition and extensively used worldwide in Spanish language music schools, universities, and conservatories.

Currently, Thomas teaches guitar and music through private tuition as a Sydney Guitar Teacher and group workshop settings at at his own establishments, the Creative Guitar School and the Creative Guitar Academy. Despite his deep technical and theoretical background, Thomas adopts a highly practical teaching method. He believes in keeping things simple and custom-tailoring theoretical content to suit each individual’s natural musical learning abilities. Thomas is focused on helping individuals explore their innate musical talents, express their unique creativity, and, most importantly, experience a positive outlook on life.

Musical Sketches: Nature and Music

Thomas was born on Dharawal country, Wollongong, NSW, Australia. Since childhood, all of his music has been a reflection of his birthplace and mother nature.

Seeking a deeper understanding of nature to compose new works, he sought the teachings of Aboriginal Culture by Traditional Custodians where the need to possess and have power over others was nonexistent, and it has allowed them to live in harmony with nature for over 50,000 years.

In 2021, Thomas was the recipient of a Creative Arts Grant from the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. Works derived from this grant include his collaboration with Gunai Kurnai Custodian Storyteller Wayne Thorpe, a 40-minute musical suite based on the Creation story of Waratah Bay in East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia.

In 2022, he collaborates with Dharawal Custodian Storyteller Dr. Jodi Edwards as part of her Fellowship through RMIT University to compose and develop music for her project, The Melodies of Language, with a focus on Dharawal Lore. Works derived from this collaboration include Madjari Yandha Gadhu, Geera Nhama-yanad Minnamurra.Listen on spotify Thomas Lorenzo
