Dr. Marceau has been on the music faculty at Finger Lakes Community College, NEMC, and he held the assistantship for percussion at Ithaca College.

Sinai High School. Tom is also a member of the Education Committee for the Percussive Arts Society and a chairperson for the SCMEA Day of Percussion. Tom is a proud endorser of Malletech instruments and mallets.

As a commissioned composer, his works are used on collegiate and competition repertoire lists around the world. Most recently, his music was added to the Great Plains International Marimba Competition’s repertoire list, the Southern California Marimba Competition’s repertoire list, and New York State's NYSSMA manual for contest solos. His works have been premiered in Europe, Japan, and throughout the States. They have been described in the Percussive Arts Society as "Beautifully Stunning" - T. Adam Blackstock, "graceful, pretty, and expressive" - Brian Zator, and Eric Willie writes, “Marceau has provided a great addition to marimba repertory, blending powerful musicality with a great display of idiomatic writing.” Tom’s first solo album for percussion, Moments, was released in 2015.
