Did a loved one get you a nicely shaped piece of wood and wire for the Holidays? It may look pretty but in your hands, it's not quite how you expect to sound?
Hit me up for a few lessons and we will go over all of the nuts and bolts of this thing and get you on the path to making some decent sounds fast!

About Timothy P.

Hi, there! My name is Timothy Pratt and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students learn how to read music, win awards, and get accepted into college with scholarships! I went to Mercyhurst University and earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance. I'm a happy and driven person and my teaching style is patient, humble, and fun. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a music stand and materials. The student must have an instrument and a burning desire to learn! We will also talk about the type of books that I recommend working from and find the one that best fits your learning style.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach folk, pop, classical guitar as well as jazz and rock styles.

Feedback

I think Tim is doing a great job with our kids to keep them interested in their lessons. This is their first musical lesson of any kind for them and so far Tim has the right mix of lessons and fun. I know that Tim wants them to practice between lessons so it will be important for him to give us instructions on exactly what they should be practicing so we can ensure its completed.

Good Experience

Our experience with Timothy P. has been very good. My 6 year old son started lessons with Timothy ten weeks ago and I'm amazed at what my son has learned in that short amount of time. And when my son decided he had a mind of his own about what he wanted to learn, Timothy was happy to adapt to that.
