Mr Chris Thomas BSc (Hons) Music Technology, Teacher of Music/Assistant Housemaster, The Mount
Date you joined the School
What do you do at Bethany?
I look after the boarders at The Mount (best house) and I am currently training to teach music.
What did you do before you came to Bethany?
I just recently graduated from Leeds Beckett studying Music Technology!
What is your favourite novel/music/artist/film and why?
My music taste is incredibly varied but my favourite artist is the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Discovering them really changed how I play guitar and opened up many new musical ideas/possibilities. My favourite film is Inception, Hans Zimmer and Christopher Nolan together = greatness.
What is your favourite quotation and why?
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne). It’s a good quote to say out loud before doing something scary/important.
What was your favourite subject at School and why?
Music Performance – it was the first thing I felt I was good at.
Why do you like working at Bethany?
The grounds are amazing and the staff really make it a lovely place to work. The kids are alright too…
What interests do you have outside Bethany?
I write and compose my own music. I also enjoy gaming and spending precious time with family/friends.
What is your favourite childhood memory?
Going to Florida.
What is your favourite colour and why?
My favourite colour depends on my mood… I’d say blue in general though because it reminds me of the beach.
If you were not doing what you are doing now, what would you like to do? Travel to new places around the world, or in a job where I can continue to be musical.
