Introduction: I live and breathe music. It’s been my passion for as long as I can remember. Now, I specialize in a number of different services as a musician: Live performance, audio engineering, music production, sound design, songwriting, and guitar lessons. After attending McNally Smith College of Music, I’ve gone on to produce music for podcasts, commercials, fashion shows and dance choreographies, provide live entertainment for public and private events (both by myself and with a band), and have had a great deal of experience recording other artists, as well as teaching guitar (my main instrument) to students of all ages. No matter what the service, I always aim to provide the best possible content and experience for my client. Every detail counts! To provide music for people brings me more satisfaction and fulfillment than any other type of work ever could. To see my client ecstatic about what I’ve done for them is the most rewarding part. Whether it’s teaching, performing, recording, or producing, every job brings me a unique experience. I love it!

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!

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 🖒👍

Animal Abstrakt always has a great presentation! The aura that Tim gives while playing is one of positive vibes that really gets crowds going. Not only is he a great musician but very respectable and professional. Always a pleasure to have him at an event when the occasion rises!

I am an Minneapolis based choreographer and artistic director of a dance company by the name of STRONGmovement. I had the opportunity to work with Animal Abstrakt on a 35min production that was performed in July of 2017. Collaborating with Animal Abstrakt was an amazing experience, he was able to make my vision come to reality with the sound scape he created tailored to the piece I created. This was my first time producing a show were the music was specifically tailored for the movement on stage. All three show sold out, we had about a total of 2000 audience members and had nothing but great feedback about the vibe and power of the show. Thank Animal Abstrakt.

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.

  • 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.
