I'm a professional guitar player from Norway and a recent graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. I have toured in places like Argentina, Norway and Japan, and have played some of New York's most famous jazz rooms like Smalls and Dizzy's club at the Lincoln Center. I am comfortable showing you the ropes for any style you enjoy within contemporary music, such as rock, pop and jazz. I have won several notable awards and scholarships for my playing and writing, including the notable Berklee Jimi Hendrix award. I am also able to teach Norwegian for those interested. I am excited to be working with you!

Tim is an amazing teacher! I recently started playing guitar and Tim has helped me improve with each lesson. He is kind, understanding, patient, and knowledgable. Tim teaches students of all levels. If you do well in your lesson, he might even treat you to a homemade Norwegian cat cookie:)
