What People Are Saying:

"Tim has been a dream mandolin teacher! He is prepared for lessons and keeps my son challenged and moving ahead. Love what I hear coming out of my son’s mandolin!" --Kelly M. (Seattle)

With many, many workshops and lessons from Tim under my belt, I am still coming back for more, and in some cases I keep coming back to the same workshops I've done previously. Why? Because at the end of the day I walk away with something new and I have a great time. And, best of all, I have made considerable progress as a player. Highly recommended! --David D. (Seattle)

After a year’s subscription, I am leading gypsy-jazz jams, improvising over chord progressions and playing chordal backing - and I can't help, but grin from ear to ear! I am getting my money's worth with his lessons. Thanks, Tim!!!" --Amanda Schrader (Manchester, NH)
