Our Story

In a quest to find the perfect material for beginners who learn in a group environment, Thomas began writing material as soon as he started teaching. With input from highly experienced colleagues, over the course of ten years a wealth of material was produced, tried and tested in the classroom by ruthless and honest critics.
Word got around, and after receiving requests from other teachers for the material, Thomas saw an opportunity to create the book he wished he had had from the start. A book that would make life easier for teachers by providing the motivation in a simple and clear format. Why talk about bow-holds when you can play a piece that provides the right incentive from a purely musical vantage?
The popularity of book 1 led to demands for a book 2 and 3 that are now all included on the ABRSM Medals syllabus. A new string book 1.5 offers new material with duets for those who have completed book 1. Plans to expand to other instruments have lead to the publication of two recorder and two flute books.  Clarinet and trumpet will follow.


“The Vamoosh music books offer a huge variety of both accessible and challenging pieces that are engaging for the beginner to the intermediate player.  These books have transformed our Wider Opportunities projects at Kent Music.” Lori Norris, Kent Music.
“Whilst the pieces are really accessible and easy to understand, they are actually quite demanding technically, dealing with issues in a very effective way”.  Katherine Shave, London.
“Thank you for changing my world as an educator, I have fun, my students have fun and we all are making music with a new found excitement!”  Eve Troiano, NY.
“Vamoosh has had a tremendous impact on our wider opportunities at Haringey, both the staff and children love the material” Vicky Miller, London.
“The Vamoosh books have been just wonderful for our schools program here at the Menuhin Foundation in Bermuda.” Charles Knights, Menuhin Foundation, Bermuda.
