About Tim

I am a guitarist based in the Boston area. Currently I am earning a Graduate Performance Diploma at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Prior to this I earned a Master's of Music in Modern American Music (Jazz & Improvisation) there in 2015. Previously, I received a Bachelor's of Music from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, where he received a Performance Degree in Classical Guitar, and a Minor in Jazz Studies.

I maintain an active schedule teaching, performing, and composing. I have experience performing most styles in the Jazz world (Swing, Bop, Free Music), as well as with pit orchestras and rock bands. As of late, I have been studying and transcribing the music of Thelonious Monk, and searching for ways to play his music on the guitar. Recently he has begun playing and teaching bass as well.

I have performed with numerous chamber groups and ensembles based in and around both Boston and the Washington, DC area. I have played in masterclasses with numerous classical guitarists including Roland Dyens, Margarita Escarpa and Carlos Barbosa-Lima, and presented his own arrangements for the guitar to Carlos Perez and R. Dyens. I am currently studying under Joe Morris.

I am available for private lessons and is comfortable teaching guitar and bass as well as composition/arranging, theory and improvisation for any instrument or ability.

I have been studying music in depth for the last ten years and playing for the last fourteen years. I have written my own music, arranged music and led bands in several different rehearsal situations.

I really enjoy being able to help others discover their potential in making music. Sharing music and learning from others is something I have the great opportunity to do in my field. Whether it is short or long term goals, I help guide my students in the direction they want to go musically, by teaching them the music they want to learn.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

I have taken several classes on Composition, and have written a lot of my own music. This last year I wrote and performed music written for guitar and trumpet, as well as music written for a five piece band with horn parts. I've been in the music field for over ten years and am comfortable with music theory, composition, arranging, and running rehearsals, etc.

General Music

I started studying Music, and Music Theory in High School and have been studying music ever since. I have been in vocal ensembles and instrumental ensembles, so I'm comfortable in either field or teaching sight-singing/ear-training and coaching groups based in either field.
