Teaching PhilosophyApart from honing new skills in time management, language and reading comprehension, and coordination, learning any instrument can be a thrilling and joyous endeavor especially when paired with a safe and nurturing environment! My students are free to discover music they enjoy while also following a curriculum that leads progressively toward a stronger understanding of all music. I aim to act as a guide helping uncover music fundamentals in all styles and genres of music while helping discover music that is both challenging and appropriate for each student. There is a vast amount of music that hasn’t been heard and I look forward to learning about it with you!

Tim has worked with pianists such as Bruce Brubaker, Lisa Moore, Donald Berman, Richard Goode, Till Fellner, and more, in lessons and masterclasses as well as performing works under the guidance of composers such as Sebastian Currier, Angelica Negron, and Eve Beglarian.
