After high school, Timothy furthered his education at Foundations Bible College, where his voice teachers and choir directors also provided an excellent balance of technical skill and musicianship. In addition to all of the standard music courses such as music history and music theory, Timothy also took a number of classes in general education, and in piano and choral pedagogy specifically. These pedagogy courses helped prepare him to adapt to the unique needs of each individual student.
Timothy is happy to teach both piano and voice to students at the beginner through intermediate or pre-college levels. He has worked with a wide variety of students, from a three year old girl to a gentleman in his sixties. He has experience teaching special needs students, including those on the autism spectrum, ADHD, and one piano student who is blind. With all of these students, they have made tremendous progress together.
Every student has unique needs and goals regarding his or her musical education, so Timothy is careful to customize his lesson plans to best fit each individual student in order to help them achieve their goals. He happily adapts his methodology to fit the student, and always makes sure to balance the need for order and discipline with freedom of musical expression.
