Thomas Beckner


Home: New York USA   

Thomas Beckner draws upon a wealth of experience that shines through in his music. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Tom's life got very busy as he toured for 8 years with comedian Bob Nelson and his cast of zany characters. Tom's comedic influences have shown up in music for TY Beanie Babies, a Superbowl ticket giveaway, a Scholastic Books circus promotion, and a new game app for the iPhone. Clients enjoy Tom's diverse musical styles which span the centuries from Medieval to Contemporary, and dramatic underscores to hilarious kids' music.

Thomas Beckner’s studies at Berklee included jazz piano, composition, synthesis, recording, and much more. He wrote or improvised music to accompany Bob Nelson's live performances, as well as sketches for “Caroline’s Comedy Hour” on A&E, and “The Laugh A Lot Club,” co-starring comedian/clown Peter Pitofsky.

For years, Thomas also worked as a musical director and accompanist for many musical theatre and dance productions, and he now focuses on teaching and composing. Recent projects include medieval music for a virtual castle tour and news themes for several web sites. Tom's growing fan base and list of clients who use his music are so broad we can barely keep count!
