Tomos Boyles is a young Welsh musician developing a career as a pianist. He has performed in numerous venues, including St Martin in the Fields, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, the Wales Millennium Centre, Christ Church Cathedral, and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

He has enjoyed success in competitions, having recently been awarded the first prize at the Wales International Piano Festival in Caernarfon;
this came with a generous scholarship to help fund future studies. Other top prizes include the Blue Ribband at the National Eisteddfod, and first place in the EPTA competition.

Tomos graduated from Christ Church, Oxford University in 2022 with a first-class degree in music, having been the recipient of an academic scholarship during his studies. While at Oxford, he gave recitals at many of the University’s colleges, including Christ Church, Mansfield, and Jesus; he also live-streamed recitals from Christ Church Cathedral during the Covid-19 pandemic when there were restrictions on live music-making.

As a postgraduate at the Royal Academy of Music, Tomos studies under pianist Rustem Hayroudinoff, having previously studied with Alison Bowring at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s junior department. Tomos has also benefitted from one-off lessons and masterclasses with pianists such as Joanna MacGregor, Piers Lane, and Artur Pizarro, among others.
