Who is Tim Quinn?
As a player, I have played over 3,000 gigs, in all styles. I am a veteran bandleader, a trusted sideman, and a local nightclub performer for decades in San Diego, and also a collaborator with local budding talent, in all genres of guitar playing.
As a teacher, I am one of the top guitar instructors in the world. After 34 years of teaching guitar, and 40+ years of playing gigs, I will say that believe I am the very best guitar instructor in the entire U.S.A. I know how to teach the guitar.
I attended four universites studying music, (University of Denver, Berklee College of Music in Boston, University of North Texas, and San Diego State University). I have four instructional guitar books published with Mel Bay Publications, Inc. I have a B.M. Degree in Jazz Guitar Performance from UNT. I minored in music theory.
As of November 2022, I am completing a series of instructional video courses for pentatonic rock and blues lead soloing. In these courses, I have identified, catalogued, and codified the entire pentatonic lead soloing language.
My main gig these days is teaching. As a teacher, I am an uparalled master at taking each student by the hand, and guiding her/him to the path of discovery. I am a master teacher of guitar.
