About Tim

I am a songwriter/singer and history and music aficionado. My wife and I moved from Los Angeles and have been living in Nashville for over two years now. I've taught elementary through college aged students. Most recently as an Artist in Residence at Interlochen Center for the Arts. Songwriting and Post World War II American History are my loves. Music is in my blood. I play guitar and piano.

I love people and I love talking about things I know and am intrigued by. And I especially like feeling that I am making a difference in this world and I truly believe that happens with one on one human interaction.

I have a bachelor's Degree in History from Indiana University. Hoosiers! Woo Hoo! I love studying religions from all over the world.

I've been playing since I was 14 and Piano since I was 19. I wrote my first song when I was 15 and have over 200 published Copyrights. I am part owner of a record label. We have released 4 LPs. I have released 3 major label LPs and produced or co-produced 7 albums.

Let's both learn some stuff and try and have some fun while getting amazing results!

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.

American History

American History is my specialty. I'm super into Civil War history and the Great Depression. It would be fun to help you delve deeper into these subjects!

Guitar

I have played the guitar for over 25 years.
I taught guitar at the School of Rock Agoura Hills from 2008-2010.
I like to teach a performance based method emphasizing ear training and chord/lyric synthesis.

Music History

I received a degree in History from Indiana University. The majority of my coursework was in music history. My Senior Thesis for The Fifties Seminar was on the birth of Rock and Roll.
I am working on a syllabus about the history of American songwriting with and emphasis on America's first popular songwriter, Stephen Foster.
