Apprentice, Touch-Up Specialist
Tim is a Florida native and has been playing upright bass for the past four years. We are excited to have him on our team as an apprentice, where he is being trained as a luthier by shop owners, Dereck and Ethan, and also learning from our fellow professionals. Tim is current graduate of the USF jazz studies program, and is also a 2013 graduate from Brevard Community College in Melbourne, where he obtained his Associate of Arts degree. He previously played guitar for four years, and had the opportunity to study jazz guitar and music theory under Michael Leasure, a guitarist/composer who specializes in jazz, classical, and acoustic guitars and original compositions. Tim has found his niche for touch-up work in our workshop on top of doing repair work, set ups, and adjustments on violin, viola, cello, and bass.
