Mann Jr., Thomas

Thomas Mann Jr. graduated with a BA in Music at Texas State University with a focus on piano and composition and completed his Master of Music in Composition in December, 2018. Mann is currently Director of Orchestras and Classical Guitar Ensembles as well as the Fine Arts Department Chair at W. Charles Akins High School in the Austin Independent School District of Texas, USA. Thomas plays Piano, Hammond Organ, Rhodes, Guitar and Bass in several genres and with various artists around Texas.

Along with teaching and live performances, he does studio work, arranging and composing for pop, jazz and modern works. Mann has played with many popular artists nationally and throughout Texas and has experience on large stages, opening for National and International acts as well as experience performing and conducting art music. Thomas has written and premiered pieces at conferences across the country and has won composition competitions at the University and Professional Organization level. His catalogue of compositions has been rapidly expanding and gaining attention, notably a set of Art Songs that have had repeat calls for performances and the release of a non- traditional quartet piece, Dance of the Lizards with PARMA records.

As Mann continues to compose music and pedagogy for his orchestras along with popular, commercial, and contemporary music, he always tries to keep his grasp beyond his reach and strives to be as well rounded and disciplined in music as possible - while striving for more knowledge and ability without sacrificing creativity in performance, composition, and teaching practices.
