Teaching since:

I am a professional multi instrumentalist who plays Guitar, Bass, Cello, and Piano. I have 8 years of teaching and I have taught private lessons and in classrooms.
I got my Bachelors of Music at Oberlin Conservatory and I am currently pursuing my Masters of Music from the University of Southern California.
I started playing professionally at 16 and have since performed at local venues such as The Mint, The Viper Room, Tabula Rasa Bar, Carson Sound Stage as well as a monthly residency at The Rhythm Room in Downtown LA. I have played with Peter Erskine, Geoffrey Keezer, Dominick Farinacci, Sara Gazarek, Kathleen Grace, Anat Cohen, Jamey Haddad, and Eddie Henderson.
I am grateful for the patience and inspiration my teachers gave to my and I feel it is my duty to give that back through teachings. I love music and I am very enthusiastic about sharing it.

I took guitar lessons with Timothy. He was a great teacher. He was not only very knowledgeable about the guitar, but he also has a great knowledge about music. He was able to help me with technical problems with my guitar playing, and he inspired me about music and playing the guitar. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Timothy!

I’ve gone through a lot of guitar teachers over the past few years, and things just clicked with Timothy. He’s the kind of teacher that is cater to each student’s skill level, but also has specific methods and regimens to bring you to the next level! Lessons are always fun and engaging.
