I have been studying with Tim for several years and the experience has been inspiring and invaluable. Tim is not only a great player, but a wonderful educator as well. Tim's approach has helped me enormously in learning the language of Jazz and in the technique of the saxophone. His teaching also encourages a much deeper musical thought process which has been profoundly useful, not just for my saxophone playing, but on all aspects of my musical life. Highly Recommended.
