Introduction: My name is Tim Collins and I have over 25 years of teaching experience. I’ve taught private and group lessons to students of all ages. I come to the home of the student and give private lessons. I love when a student starts to really make music. I am currently only doing lessons at the home of the student. After many years of teaching at studios and music stores I’ve come to believe that in home lessons are much more effective and comforting for the student.

Guitar Lessons

Excellent Professional!! My 9yr old daughter’s first guitar lesson and she absolutely loved it! Tim clearly articulated details of the guitar, to where my daughter understood what he was saying by the end of the lesson. She was able to pick a 2 string starter song to practice until next weeks session! Tim allowed me to record a recap of the lesson which will help her practice throughout the week; he clearly has a passion to teach music!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Well my pricing may seem a little high but it’s lower that the national average for in home private music instruction. It’s only slightly more than you would pay at a music store and you don’t even have to leave your house. I am confident that I can help you meet any musical goals you might have.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always start with a few questions about a students goals and favorite music. Also, it is extremely important to me for the student to feel relaxed and ready to have some fun learning music. This is one of the main reasons why I only do in home instruction now. The student is in his or her natural environment and it’s an atmosphere which is perfectly conducive to learning.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied classical piano and classical guitar at Florida School Of The Arts and went to music school at Florida State University where I majored in the classical guitar. I have had many amazing teachers as well as played with hundreds of amazing musicians in professional performances. Other genres include: pop, country, rock, blues, church cantatas, musical theater ensembles, group instruction and some jazz.
