I took guitar lessons with Tim a couple years ago before he moved away. I knew his skill and talent from his previous work in bands and it was a no-brainer for me to go to him. His ability to assess where you are at as a student and apply the proper curriculum to help advance you in your craft is what you would expect from a quality teacher such as Tim. If you're looking to open your creativity, you can't go wrong seeking guidance with him. He's got my recommendation 🖒👍Feb 28, 2018

I have interviewed Animal Abstrakt twice on my podcast, and he is excellent to work with. Not only does he put out some amazing music, he’s incredibly professional and will work with your schedule. I recommend working with him in any capacity you can.Feb 17, 2018
Beyond grateful that I was connected with Animal Abstrakt when I needed some ultra last minute work done. Not only was he able to deliver exactly what I needed but in such a short amount of time. My project wouldn’t have been the same without his help! It’s amazing to be able to work with people who are passionate about what they do! Forever thankful!Mar 1, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?While I do have standards when it comes to pricing, I’m always open to negotiation, as I know what it’s like to run a project on a tight budget. All I ask is to take into consideration the time, special skill(s), heart, and use of/transportation of equipment that goes into most music-related projects. It demands more than most people think!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I find out what exactly it is they want from me and how I can provide it for them. If it’s lessons, we start with assessing knowledge and skill level, and expand on that with every lesson. If it’s a production, I learn as much about the project as I possibly can and execute from there. If I’m working with another artist, my goal is to get to know their artistry as well as I can and cater my work to their vision, as this makes for the best musical outcome. If I’m being hired as a performer, then I make sure to show up on time (as with any job), be professional (as with any job) and put on the best damn show I possibly can so they won’t forget it!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was classically trained in Suzuki violin from age 7-11, classically trained on guitar from age 9-16, and sang in prestigious choirs throughout high school and college. While at McNally Smith College of Music, I attended courses in music theory, audio engineering, record production, songwriting, and music business, as well as private vocal lessons and expert guitar lessons.
