Music - Composition

David Thomas is the head of the Composition Department at UArts, where he also teaches music theory.

His music has been commissioned and performed around the world by choruses, chamber groups and jazz ensembles. Recent performances include a newly commissioned choral piece performed by The Salt Lake Vocal Artists at The World Choral Symposium, in Barcelona, Spain; and a week-long residency with the Naked Voices chorus in Jerusalem.

David also has a popular Youtube channel, where he promotes both scores/recordings of his own music, and music theory videos that have been used by many schools and universities worldwide.
