Tim's combined skill, experience and love for music make him a highly qualified guitar teacher. He is very cooperative with kids of all ages. My son loves working with him. If you're interested in learning how to play the guitar, give a shot. You'll be so glad you did.Jan 20, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Weekly lesson are given in 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions at $27, $37 and $47, respectively and payable on a monthly basis. Bi-weekly sessions for 45 and 60 minute sessions are $42 and $52, respectively.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start with a free 30 minute trial lesson that lets us get to know one another, find out goals and assess strengths and areas of improvement. From there we'll find a mutually convenient time to meet on a weekly basis.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Absolutely. I'm kind of a tech nut and keep up on gear that can help a player get to the next level. As a Mac user, I use Garageband quite a bit. It's a great scratch pad that can get your ideas well formed before letting the pro engineers lay it down. I also stay current with what's in the music stores. Some of it can be good and will stick around, but there's a lot of gimmicky stuff I want to help people avoid. In terms of music, I'll teach students WHATEVER they want to learn. It may not be my cup of tea, but I'm not going to tell someone "I won't teach you that because I don't like it, or it's no good." I can go on youtube and check out the latest single, learn it and share it. I read a lot too, so that keeps me 'in the know'.
