Overview

My name is Tim, and I'm a guitarist who's been playing for about 13 years and teaching for 8 years. I have performance degrees in both Classical and Jazz music, and I'm comfortable teaching lessons in both private one on one settings and group classes. I also double on bass, and have been teaching bass lessons for about 3 years now. I'm comfortable teaching lessons geared towards any style, and love helping students discover how to pursue their interests!

Tim C is an amazing teacher. He has been my son's guitar teacher for 4 years. He motivates and inspires my son to be a better player. He is very kind and patient with his students. My son doesn't want any other teacher than Tim, and that speaks volumes. We were truly blessed to have Tim come into our life and work with my son. He has a true gift and pure knowledge of guitar. Tim is everything you would want in an instructor.

Tim has been teaching our 9-year old son for a year now. We could not wish for a kinder and more understanding teacher. Tim is extremely patient (as his student requires ;-)) and very flexible. He tries various approaches to teaching the material, until our son learns what he needs to learn. We are very pleased with how much progress has been made and look forward to more!
