Tim offers three styles of piano playing and teaching. These include:

  • Classical - Incorporating 400 years of history, from Baroque and Classical, to Romantic and Contemporary. This is useful for students studying pieces via the AMEB, or for students with a more traditional approach to piano playing.
  • Jazz - Incorporating early 20th Century styles of Ragtime & Stride, to the more popular Jazz Standards. Tim also explores the art of improvisation for those students who are a little more creative and adventurous.
  • Popular - Incorporating current classic hits, top 40 and rock 'n' roll. This genre is particularly relevant for students wanting to play a more relaxed and free style of piano.
