With his unique talent on the violin he excels in everything from traditional fiddle tunes, classical arrangements, to pure originals! Thomas has three solo records to his name, as well as countless collaboration’s with the likes of Gabe Nieto, Allen Cote & Tomato Junction, Myriam Di Maio, Cullin Lane, Mychael John Thomas of RCA Records Nashville, and many others… Thomas currently plays with some of the top names in Country, Jazz, Folk, Bluegrass, and Latin! When he’s not touring or in the studio, Thomas also loves the joys of teaching on a regular basis. He gives private and group classes structuring the lesson to meet the desire of his students.

Current Quote about Work:
“I really like the way in which the composer Thomas McGregor proposed this “gallery of sounds” up and down, the different “colors” of the music. The way he arranged the rhythm and paused, and the great end sequence as a tree exploding into the sky.”
Myriam di Maio – Film Director/Artistic Design Italy, EU

Certificate of Expertise: The O’Connor Violin Method The O’Connor Violin Method employs classic violin technique and theory to teach students to become skilled violinists. But more than that, the O’Connor Violin Method uses familiar traditional American music to engage and motivate the young artists. The method seeks to instill a deep appreciation of America’s musical history with background stories of all those that contributed to this rich heritage: Immigrants, African-American slaves, soldiers – all of whom together created what has become the new American Classical Music.
