** Following the COVID-19 pandemic, all students MUST be at least 14 days past full vaccination to be eligible for in-person lessons. Online lessons are still offered for those not yet vaccinated (piano only). Thank you for your understanding and patience ** I hold a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. With over 20 years of experience, in both piano and voice, I've had to opportunity to perform domestically and internationally with such great acts as The Philly Pops, The Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, and many others. I served as lead singer, pianist, and co-songwriter for a number of independent bands covering numerous genres including, but not limited to, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Acoustic, and A Capella. My teaching style is unique and individualized to each student. I set personalized goals to make every lesson a success, and I push my students to get the most out of themselves just like I do myself. I'm always enthusiastic and humor driven to create a personable learning environment for students of any age. Music is my life, and I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to share my greatest passion with the hope that my students, too, will fall in love with music! *** Lesson Details *** My lesson environment is laid back and stress-free. I like my students to feel inspired and encouraged as they begin or continue their music education. I introduce fun and innovative ways to build students' musicianship and creativity while retaining classical methods to develop strong technique and proper performance and practice habits. For beginners, we'll be exploring the basics of either piano, or voice, while focusing on proper technique, basic theory, and a solid skill set. Within 3-6 months, my students are able to read music and understand the language of it. For intermediate-advanced, we'll focus on building musicianship and skill sets by furthering studies in music theory, varying styles of repertoire, proper techniques that will greatly improve your piano and/or voice abilities, songwriting, improvisation, and live performance skills. I ask that my students come prepared to every lesson with the motivation and commitment to learn something new each week! Lessons are a fun and creative way to discover yourself as an artist and a person, so let's get started!!

Tim is a great singing instructor. I made progress much faster than I thought was possible. I really enjoyed working with him.
Tim is great, really patient and enthusiastic teacher who knows his stuff. As a complete beginner who hasn’t played an instrument since middle school, I would highly recommend him.
Great Internet, great teaching, positive attitude. Amazing!
