Introduction: Baltimore-based Musician // Producer // Mixer // Recording Engineer // Private Guitar Instructor // Guitarist for Sunbathers // Boate & Ajluni Duo I approach guitar lessons in a different way than most teachers. Having now taught more than 4,000 guitar lessons to over 200 different students, I have developed a unique style of explaining and demonstrating playing technique and music theory that is effective for a wide range of experience levels and musical styles. I am not looking to force anything on my students. Instead, I find out what they actually want to learn, what types of music they like, and what their goals are. Then I create a series of custom lessons that allow them to quickly learn or improve their skills on the guitar. In addition to teaching guitar, I also offer a full range of audio recording, editing, mixing and mastering services, as well as teaching recording and producing using Logic Pro/GarageBand software. Playing music has been a lifelong passion of mine. Having spent thousands of hours honing my skills on the guitar and recording/mixing techniques, I find it very rewarding to share the knowledge I have built with others, and to allow them to find the same enjoyment with music as I do.

I’ve been taking lessons with Tim for almost a year now. I’ve been playing for a few years and hit a road block in my playing and needed an instructor to help me get through it. When I reached out to Tim I was interested in expanding my knowledge with guitar as well as recording and mixing. Within a few weeks with Tim I was able to get over that road block as he showed me a lot of new things with music theory, chord shapes, scales, techniques, etc. Once I had a better understanding of music theory we began recording and producing guitar pieces in Logic Pro in his studio. Tim showed me new techniques when recording guitar to make the production sound full and professional. Even when we’re just working on recording, I still learn new things on the guitar as well. Tim is a very knowledgeable musician and music producer. He’s patient and willing to go at the pace you need. He’s also very flexible with scheduling and rescheduling sessions. I’d recommend Tim to anyone that is either learning to play for the first time or trying to grow from where they are.

I have the pleasure of taking guitar lessons with Tim. Not only is he a good teacher, but he also has a true passion for music and sharing his knowledge with others. His teaching style is engaging and tailored to my individual learning needs. He is patient, supportive, and always encourages me to push beyond my limits. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher to anyone looking to enhance their musical abilities.

Tim is an incredible instructor, and a jaw dropping guitar player and music producer. As a self taught guitar player, I have been on the hunt for what seems like forever to find a guitar instructor that had all the qualities I was looking for: Great playing across multiple styles, easy to understand teaching methods, passion behind the playing, passion to teach, and a great personality. I never had luck until I found Tim. Tim can play anything you could imagine and makes it look easy, and over the past few months he has already increased my guitar skill exponentially even though I've already been playing for over 13 years. I could go on and on, but I truly think that Tim is one of the best guitar instructors in the DMV area, and if you are looking to get better at guitar playing or music production, stop searching and send him a message immediately!

I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but after several attempts to teach myself, I thought it was a lost cause. Tim is an awesome teacher and super cool guy! He put together custom lessons based on my interests and made learning the fundamentals easy.

I have worked with Tim on recording, mixing and mastering over 10 songs now, and he is absolutely fantastic! I have hired him to help me track vocals, guitar, harmonica, and bass. He has also helped me mix 10 songs, and master 10 songs. He has been worth every dollar I have paid him for this work. I wish I could have paid him more! He is super easy to work with, very friendly, professional, thorough and responsive. And his work is amazing! If you're looking for someone in Baltimore to help you track, mix or master your songs. I can't recommend him enough!
