About Tim

Tim Hancock has 16+ years experience in music education, eLearning, touring and studio work. After graduating in 2008 with an honors degree in music and professional practice, Tim begun teaching in classrooms back home in the UK. His ability to engage with young learners did not go unnoticed and he was soon leading teacher training and professional development for other instructors in the district. Simultaneously Tim spent much of his 20’s writing, recording and touring with his own band, Brontide, and other established acts. This lead him to travel parts of Europe, China and the USA. The US would call again when he moved there in 2019, taking a job with Fender to work on their eLearning platform, Fender Play. During that time he developed curriculum, as well as supporting programs within large education institutions such as Los Angeles and Hawaii’s school districts. His work has helped thousands of students to develop a love for playing and achieve goals they thought were otherwise out of reach. His approach is always to meet the needs of his students, but ensure learning is fun and musical.

I come away so energetic and excited after every lesson with Tim! I felt bad because I hadn't practiced at all since our last session and he was totally cool with that. He came in with a plan of what to focus on, made it easy, and I just can't believe how he can simplify complex notes down so much. I am 100% becoming a better player than I ever thought was possible thanks to him!

Tim is an incredible coach! I learned more in one 30-min session with Tim than I ever thought possible. He's patient and a master communicator that can make complex things seem simple and fun to do! I highly recommend having Tim as your coach!
