Timothy’s unique style challenges many traditional ideas about the types of music that can be played with a violin. He is described as an incredible stage presence with an intense level of energy and talent. Born in Southern California, Timothy discovered his passion and talent for the arts early, and by the age of nine was diligently studying the violin and listening to Mark O’Connor, Jean Luc Ponty and Itzak Perlman. His passion for the arts expanded during his high school years to include vocal and theater arts as well as the violin.

In 1996 he began training at Cal State Fullerton and graduated in 2000 with a BFA in Theatre Arts. He studied intensively in vocal performance, concert violin and musical theatre arts.

In 2001, Timothy continued to refine his skills at The Boston Conservatory of Music, and just one year later, he was performing as a soloist with the Boston Pops Orchestra. His popularity as a musician was on the rise and he frequently appeared at prestigious events throughout New England and New York.

In 2002, Timothy was accepted into Brandeis University’s prestigious Performing Arts Program as a Master’s Candidate. Tim had a special gift and this highly esteemed school was the perfect place for Tim to further his studies.

After completing the Master of Fine Arts degree in 2005 from Brandeis, Timothy was offered the opportunity to tour internationally as a Lead Singer with Holland America Cruise Lines performing in their main stage production shows. While onboard, Tim also began to develop his growing interest in playing multiple genres of music on the violin, and upon his return to the Southern California, he began performing what is described as a unique blend of contemporary and classic music.

Timothy currently resides in Irvine, California, and serves as a professor of music and theater at Riverside City College. He continues to perform at weddings, corporate events and concerts all over Southern California. He is a preferred violinist at top Orange County venues such as the Ritz-Carlton Hotel at Laguna Beach, Surf and Sand Resort, the Waterfront Hilton in Huntington Beach, and many more. Read less

Best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Tim to DJ/emcee/Play the electric violin!!! He was the perfect touch to the day and our guests still haven't stopped talking about it. I truly can't recommend Tim enough, he made us feel So comfortable and the evening ran seamless because of him and the collaboration of Holly with Simply Sweet Weddings as our wedding planner. Such a great team!!! Again, hire Tim, you won't regret it, I promise!!!

Using Tim to set the mood at my daughter's wedding transformed our day from being a nice wedding at a beautiful venue in Fallbrook to an elegant gathering of crazy people. He does it all! He met with my daughter and son in law twice prior to the wedding to get a good feel for their preferences and their list of songs. He arrived early to set up the sound at the wedding site and reception venue, as well as working out a custom interval in the matron of honor's speech last minute. He greeted our guests and announced the bride with the electric violin, entertained the crowd with the electric violin during the cocktail hour, acted as emcee to announce the wedding party, speeches, toasts, and first dances, and then kept the party rocking as the DJ. He has a great feel for working the energy of the crowd. If a song wasn't working he faded out and started something with a better dance beat. He is very professional and extremely talented.

Tim is one of the best in the business. He provides an experience unlike any other DJ in the market. All of my guests have been talking about how amazing the electric violin was. Not only that but we all had such a blast during the reception as well. He is by far my favorite Musician for weddings!

Tim was recommended to us by our Wedding Planner, Heather Hoesch from LVL Events. After watching him on YouTube and checking out his covers and original pieces on SoundCloud, we were sold!

After chatting with him via Skype, he gave us confidence that he was the right fit for our vision. We believed in the experience that he could provide us so much, that we even changed our wedding date so that he could perform at our ceremony and DJ our reception. The decision was one that we were glad we made.

throughout the process, Tim met with us several times to get a feel for our musical style and plan a memorable evening. Being that we were from Canada, communication was a hurdle but he did a great job at making it work.

The day of the wedding, Tim showed up early, was professional dealing with us and our vendors and flexible. He also helped us with lighting for the venue (both the ceremony and the reception). He turned our concept in to a reality and it was great to see it all come in to action.

During the ceremony, he performed as guests arrived and as we walked to the alter. He really set the mood for the entire evening. He also made a point of keeping the focus on us. During cocktails and throughout dinner he played and our guests loved it! After dinner, he really worked the dance floor and got everyone dancing. He kept the energy and fun going throughout the night. At one point, he showed everyone how to do the "Thriller" dance, which was pretty cool.

All in all, Tim was the best choice we could have made! He was professional, great to work with, fun, flexible and kept a great mood going throughout the night from the ceremony, to the reception, to the dance. Adding the element of an electric violinist in to our ceremony, dinner and first dances was really unique and took our wedding to the next level. To this day, we still have friends and family talking about how much they loved our wedding.

Thanks again Tim!

Tim was a consummate professional throughout our whole wedding experience. He was patient and gave a lot of great direction on working out music choices/themes and suggesting the type of songs that would work well based on our audience size and the type of wedding we wanted.

On our wedding day, he gave a great performance at the ceremony that made it truly memorable. He kept the reception’s energy level at the right pace, whether it was slowing it down for the more intimate moments or pumping it up to keep folks dancing and involved.

He really is a one man show who can make your wedding day feel magical. We would not hesitate to use Tim for any special event in the future!

Tim was the first and only DJ we met with for our wedding! And we couldn't be happier with everything we did to make our wedding amazing.
Tim was referred to us by a colleague who had used him for her wedding and from some friends in the industry. I sent him a request for information on his web site and got an e-mail within 20 minutes, even though he was heading out of time for a wedding. He responded to a few questions that day as well and set up our first appointment for early the following week. Customer service is one of the most important things to me, so after those first couple of e-mail interactions, I had a great feeling about him.
After meeting him in person, my husband and I knew right away we wanted him as our violinist, DJ and MC. We have very different tastes in music and Tim was excited to take our favorites and create a personalized experience for our wedding. He was open to our ideas we wanted to incorporate and helped us where we didn't know exactly what we wanted to do. His confidence, friendliness and passion for his work won us over!
He was a huge hit at our wedding and our guests were so impressed. From the songs he played on the violin for our ceremony to the energy he brought to our reception and music he played to keep us dancing the whole night, we couldn't have been happier with Tim.
If you want someone who truly cares about making sure your day is exactly what you want when it comes to music/entertainment and being a great host for the evening, hire Tim!

Ryan and I were referred to Tim by our wedding coordinator, Katherine. We were so grateful to have Tim be our violinist/Dj for our wedding day.
When we met with he was very professional, asked questions about what we wanted and what type of vibe we were going for. I really appreciated that because he was really making it about us as a couple! Our wedding was an absolute blast! People were on the dance floor all night and thats exactly what we wanted!:) If you are looking for a personable and fun DJ I would defiantly use him on any occasion. Thank you so much!
