Norton Music Education

Teaching music privately and publicly in Southern California since 2013, Tim has shone as a light to many seeking help understanding the musical language.

He was selected as one of Thumbtack’s Top Pro’s and even won Best of 2015 and Best of 2016 for Guitar Instructors in San Diego County.

Thumbtack Best Pro of 2015His teaching approach is simple. Find the strengths within each individual’s own specific skill set. Then – tailor the lesson plan to their preferred learning style that is familiar to their musical background.


As of 2017 Tim has hired additional teachers and is offering not only Private Music Lessons, but a new DIY business focused class for teens: Creative Business Methods for the Young Musical Artist.

Got a teenager who’s headed to college in the next two years? Lets get them CONFIDENT and ORGANIZED with not only their creative disciplines, but their relationship to business as well.

Recently, some of Tim’s long-standing students were accepted to colleges for music; one international student will study at Berklee College of Music in Boston and another will attend UC Santa Cruz, both starting in 2018.

Tim worked diligently with these students to pass the rigorous audition process that is required to study an instrument full time at these established art schools and instilled various techniques for developing their own brand, monetizing their art and of course staying true to their passion.

Tim is now accepting Private Music Coaching & Consultation requests via Skype.
