My Story

Darren “Mr. Classical” Thompson is a master pianist from Yonkers, NY and founder of PianoForte. Since starting his studies at the age of eight in Tampa, Florida, music has taken Darren around the country and around the world from performing in Connecticut, New York, North Carolina, to South Korea, Costa Rica, and Mexico. He has completed his degree in Business Management in New York, NY and since relocating to Katy, Texas, has pursued his love of collaborative music through performances at popular restaurants, festivals, and events within Katy and Houston. Darren splits his time away from the piano by personal training and enjoying Katy’s agriculture and weather.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities to perform, collaborate, or network. Let's connect.
