Tim Flores


Teaching Philosophy

Apart 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 is a German-American pianist, collaborator, educator, and music director currently based in the greater Boston area. His passion towards contemporary music has led him to premiere countless works by young composers as well as uncover music by lesser known composers from around the world and even take on challenging works as soloist with orchestra. He was recently seen performing the in-person premiere of Hsiu-Ping (Patrick) Wu’s Work “Ignite” for Piano Soloist and Orchestra. Tim has worked with pianists such as Bruce Brubaker, Lisa Moore, Donald Berman, Richard Goode, Till Fellner, and others in lessons and masterclasses. He has performed works under the guidance of composers such as Sebastian Currier, Angelica Negron, and Eve Beglarian. As a music director, Tim has worked as both conductor, pianist, and vocal coach on numerous musical and opera productions. His musical decisions and leadership have been called “dynamic,” “high-octane,” and “expert” by Broadway World. As a collaborative pianist Tim’s work can be heard on Aaron Campbell’s debut Album “For Those That Wander” and throughout the Boston area as a chamber musician and accompanist with various ensembles and soloists, including Ensemble Lyrae, Promenade Opera Project, and Ensemble Encaged. Upcoming engagements with MassOpera and his newly formed Piano and Wind Sextet were funded through a generous grant by Mass Cultural Council. In addition to recently joining the Piano Faculty at Groton Hill Music Center, Tim is also a part of the Collaborative Piano Staff at the Longy School of Music, supporting both instrumental and vocal departments, and he holds a faculty position at The University of Hartford – Hartt Community Division. He lives with his wife and son in Acton, MA.
