« 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. »

I am a successful freelance french horn player, I play with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and many others. I also play on recording sessions, recently for Kanye West and Sting.I am also a singer songwriter with lots of experience playing in bands. Making my own music has always been very important to me.

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.
