Soon after he was engaged with Sparkling City Light Opera as Don Ramiro in La Cenerentola. He began his studies in 1998 at Texas State University where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance in 2001. He is heard in such roles as The Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto, Des Grieux in Manon, Count Almaviva in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Rodolfo in La boheme; Franz in Les Contes d’ Hoffman, Ernesto in Don Pasquale, Albert in Albert Herring, Tamino in The Magic flute, Ezekiel Cheever in The Crucible, and Beppe in I Pagliacci.

*** Lesson Details ***
Classical technique is what I teach. Including breathing placement and musicianship. However that does not mean that I try to turn all my students into opera singers. The truth is you can utilize the classical technique in any genre of music. Trust me it will make a difference in your singing. I would be happy to discuss my methods in more detail. Thank you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office and studio space with seating for parents. He has Dogs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Its helpful if the student possesses a keyboard or piano but if not i can provide one.

*** Specialties ***
I have been both an opera/musical theater performer as well as a pop musician so I feel I am extremely well versed in many performance styles and how to teach them.

Very knowledgeable. It’s obvious he teaches often and can practice what he preaches. Learned a lot just in one lesson. Definitely recommend.

As someone who has never had a singing lesson before, I was a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect, but Tim made me feel incredibly comfortable very quickly! He has a ton of insight, listens to every question or concern, and I'd absolutely recommend him.

Excellent instructor with an emphasis on proper breathing and technique. He is incredibly knowledgeable and conveys tips about vocal placement and breath control in a way that "clicks" with me. I'm an experienced classically trained singer who was looking for a professional to help me refine my instrument and correct some technique issues. I am thankful to have found this instructor. 5 stars!

Fantastic vocal instructor and singer! Have seen a ton of growth and development in my voice since beginning lessons with Timothy. Just when I was about to call it quits with the vocal training Timothy helped breathed new life into my singing. Professional all the way. Helped me improve range, tone, pitch, and still more work to be done!

I'm not going to lie, I thought it was going to be one of the hardest days of my life but Mr. B explained and broke down his lesson plan to a point where any can understand, yes it was my first day and all days may not be well paced but I'm ready for the challenge, He's a Magnificent teacher and a Humble individual.
