About Tim

I am a percussionist and educator with a wealth of knowledge and experience, both in and outside of the classroom. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, I started my musical training in 1999 with private percussion lessons. From 2006-2012, I attended the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and received both my Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees in Percussion Performance. During my time at Indiana University, I completed rigorous coursework in music theory, music history, ear training, sight singing, conducting and jazz improvisation, in addition to my main study of percussion.

I have extensive experience as an educator and I have taught children, teenagers and adults in various subjects and settings. In 2013, I was the K4 Assistant Kindergarten Teacher at Waseda International School in Tokyo, Japan. My duties included assisting the homeroom teacher with early childhood educational lessons that covered reading, writing, math, social skills and music. I currently teach private percussion lessons in the St. Louis area to people of all ages and all skill levels.
