Introduction: Dear prospective student, Thankyou for reading my profile. I do teach both in person and online lessons . I have found them both to work to be quite benificial for both myself and the student. I invite you to at least try a few lessons and see. Teaching harmony, improvisation, rhythm skills, chord voicings. I include videos of myself playing tunes and solos as well as comping. I have also created bass play along accompaniments for most songs and some exercises. My approach is thorough. I also share a multitude of PDFs regarding chords and written solos . Going through different styles such as swing, bossa nova, ballad and more, I pay much attention to your timing and rhythm. I have a masters degree and many studies with private teachers such as Jaki Byard , Clare Fischer, Spud Murphy, Charlie shoemake and Terry Trotter. I can take any age or level. I am patient and also teach regular piano and song writing, harmony and theory. Thankyou

Tim has been a great teacher, in my opinion. I’ve been working with him for about 7 months, as of the time of this review. I came to him as a beginner piano player, 42yrs old - no experience. Although I am considerably below the experience level of many of Tim's other students, he has developed a course method for me to get up to speed on basics. Here’s a list of things I appreciate about Tim’s lessons: - He’s pretty patient during lessons when I’m not getting something (probably the most critical factor in a teacher) - He assigns appropriate amount and type of material for my skill level - He provides good constructive criticism and holds me accountable for working out details in my assignments - He shows me examples of how things in my assignments could, or should be played - His ear is pretty incredible…hears notes and calls them out even when not looking at my hands. - He provides some ear training in lessons - He clearly knows a large amount of music theory, and is pretty good at explaining it as it relates to lessons - His rates are reasonable - His personality is pretty laid back - When I started I couldn’t play any songs, but I think I have worked through 20 to 25 songs now.

Tim is an excellent teacher and musician. He is a professional and will help you get where you want to be as a musician. His attention to detail and student needs keeps the lesson focused and he works at the student’s pace. I highly recommend Tim for anyone that wants to take piano lessons.

I started learning from Tim for about 2 months. Tim is great to work with. I came from classical piano to jazz and I got a lot improvement since taking lessons from him!

Taking lesson's with Tim has been an awesome experience so far! He's a phenomenal teacher. From the first day, he's been tailoring my lessons to match both my skill level and the styles of music that I'm interested in playing (jazz/blues mostly). He's giving me an extremely palatable balance of theory, exercises, and song playing, and I genuinely look forward to sitting down and practicing every day. From scales, to songs, to solos, he has me thinking and working with music in a way that's really improved my understanding and abilities. He also has an amazing ear, and he's been invaluable in pointing out areas of weakness that I can improve upon. He's a phenomenal pianist as well, and I would honestly pay money just to watch him play! I highly recommend Tim!

If you are looking to break free from the prison of only being able to read sheet music, Tim can help you. He is clearly very talented and he introduces music theory concepts patiently and methodically. Each lesson builds on the last. He is very professional and responsive. He provides videos to reference and is very helpful in intuitively answering questions about concepts you might be struggling with. I’ve played piano for a number of years without instruction but I can tell that I’ll be much more competent after sticking with his lesson program. The remote lessons are also extremely convenient for people with busy schedules. I highly recommend.
