Afterwards he created a considerable school of music; among its most well-known pupils were Voříšek, Alexander Dreyschock and E. Hanslick.

Tomášek made acquaintances with Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose poems he set. His autobiography was published in German, as well as in the Czech translation. He lived at number 15 Tomášská Street in Prague - the building bears a memorial plaque to him in Czech and German. Tomášek exclusively wrote for the piano and became a forerunner of the lyric piece of piano, which later found its completion in Franz Schubert. At first he created compositions rather in the classical style, later was influenced by the newly born Romanticism.

The important part of his oeuvre represent also songs. Besides songs to the Goethe's German poems he composed also songs to the patriotic lyrics of Czech authors. He composed short pieces for glass harp and organ, and works for choir.
