Guitarist, Songwriter & Performer
Tim Norton was born on June 11th, 1991 and grew up in Ashland, MA, USA. He is a father and musician, best known for his Funk & Americana Jamband, Moves Collective ('14-'19).
Operating independently and touring an average of over 100 shows/year in the Western US, Tim's projects have garnered fans all over the country who continue to travel to be a vital part of his music.
Landing features in Relix Magazine ('19), NBC San Diego ('18), San Diego Music Awards ('17) and SD Troubadour ('14,'19), Tim's original music has been recognized by and featured in dozens of US publications.
In 2015, Tim's crowdfunding efforts brought over $11k to the band's first album. 3 years later, he successfully completed another fan-supported campaign that brought in just over 10k and included their fans on the process.
Each week, Tim teaches music to over 25 families in San Diego. He's stated that, "Passing on the knowledge of music has got to be one of the biggest privileges of mine."
Tim is an avid collaborator. He’s been invited to share the stage with nationally known acts such as Pink Talking Fish, Marcus Rezak, Joe Marcinek Band, Grateful Bluegrass Boys, as well as Hot Buttered Rum.

Guitar & Piano Instruction for All Ages [In-Home & Skype]
Over the past 5 years, I've been voted into Thumbtack's Top 5 Music Instructors in San Diego County and have helped students get prepared, auditioned and accepted to Berklee College of Music as well as UC schools.
Whether you're 5 years old and learning the musical alphabet, or 65 years young - dusting off our modal soloing techniques and newly acquired drop-2 voicings - I love seeing that light bulb come on as we work through concepts, songs and musical traditions that we love.

I book out by the month for in-home lessons. I'm restricted to the San Diego County area. Skype/Facetime video lessons are also available (and popular!) to non San Diego residents.
