« I highly recommend Tim for the Trumpet. He is charismatic, dedicated and genuinely interested in helping kids learn. He is both proactive in coming up with ideas of how to get past niggles in learning and responsive to my queries, both by phone and email. I have had a lot of music teachers (both for myself and my 3 kids) and Tim is a natural teacher - great with children and parents. »
