"[Thomas] composed a wonderfully imaginative, inventive and beautifully written percussion trio... I consider it to be one of the most effective percussion ensemble works ever written by a UT student."
"...his level of composition was extremely high. He possesses a fine ability to incorporate motivic development throughout his music, and the score is beautifully notated, musically interesting..."
"I was busy being blown away, but Thomas Yee's paper on Eternal Sonata is really nice."
"I have been a professional composer for twenty years in Los Angeles and have never seen such professional orchestrations created by someone..."
"Scoring a silent film requires deftness, both subtlety and brashness, all within overarching themes. Thomas' score was complex and melodic, and fit well with and enhanced the action on the screen."
"Thomas not only scored with ease, but [also] captured the message, the spirit, the vision, and all technical aspects of the project as a whole. His ability to score any project is without question."
"Thomas, our Composition Seminar at Pepperdine just watched you conduct [Pale] Blue Dot! Brilliant! Really gorgeous writing."
