My connection with the piano began as a youngster maturing through the decades with a profound understanding of its richness as a solo instrument and as a member of an ensemble. Either context, I offer sight-, sing-, and ear-training to fully embrace what you love.
About Tim R.

With collegiate guitar studies, collaborations in progressive rock projects, and original compositions scored ― I have a deep understanding of music theory, authoring "Understand, See, Hear - Become One with the Guitar," guitar technique, ear training, and songwriting, My musical journey as a composer and recording artist has always been an expression of my individuality. *** Lesson Details *** Music is a subjective experience. As a listener, what you love reflects yourself; similarly, what you play reflects yourself. As your mentor, my goal is to nurture your development as a guitar player, as well as, nurture your self-expression through the instrument. With perseverance, your goals as a musician can be attained with each lesson a step in understanding and in motor skills to this end. Always though, the objective is that the musical journey is fun and fulfilling. *** Studio Equipment *** keyboard, guitars, amp/effects processor, computer music notation *** Specialties *** Approaching the guitar holistically, I show how the guitar is organized using templates from my book. Musical concepts such as chords and scales are applied within the guitar's holistic framework and are related to the student's preferred artists/songs. If it compliments the student's learning style, musical notation is used. Styles I specialize in are rock 'n' roll, jazz, and classical.

Tim is always enthusiastic at teaching while obtaining great skills and knowledge of music. He's been always helping and encouraging me. Unfortunately I needed to leave as I'm moving out of town. I would recommend him as your sensei if you are interested in expressing yourself with musical words.

Tim has many years experience and it is clear that he enjoys teaching guitar and sharing this with his student. He is very encouraging. He is currently working with me on emproving some of my techniques and feels that I am making great progress and that it will make a great difference in my gaining a greater mastery of playing the guitar.
