Hillary Thomas
Schedule: Mon | Fri
Hillary’s enthusiasm for music dates back to age three, when she began studying the violin in her home town of Manassas, Virginia. Her passion for music only intensified as she grew older and also began studying the piano and viola. As a teenager her family moved to Columbus, Ohio where she became a member of the Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestra. It was there that one of her private instructors suggested that she become Suzuki Certified and also start teaching music. During high school she studied composition at the prestigious, Interlochen Academy of the Arts and The Ohio State University. It was not long before Hillary’s distinctive works became recognized, as she won awards across the state for her original compositions.

After graduating from high school, Hillary moved to Los Angeles where she attended the California Institute of the Arts. After graduation, Hillary was accepted to The University of Southern California Scoring for Motion Picture and Television Program. Since that time she has performed on and composed the music for many Hollywood Film Scores.

Along with teaching Violin, Viola and Piano, Hillary enjoys spending her time swimming on a masters team, working in her vegetable garden or hanging out with her two dogs.
