Flute, Trombone, Trumpet, Saxophone, All Brass and Woodwind Instruments Instructor
Joining the Arlington School of Music, A Division of Arlington Institute of Music and Performing Arts ® in 1991, Tim Bourne provides instructions in woodwind and brass instruments. His students range from elementary school age through adult and represent all levels of skill. Describing his passion for teaching, Tim says, “I love the process of watching a student move from being a beginner to demonstrating a mastery of a piece of music. And learning to play an instrument requires using many different skills together, so the student develops those other skills as well. Plus, the self-discipline you learn from practicing is valuable all through life.”
Tim has been actively performing and teaching music for more than 40 years. While studying at the University of Illinois, Benedictine University, and Elmhurst College, he earned a Bachelor of Music Education degree, with honors, and holds a K-12 teaching certificate in Illinois. He began teaching private music lessons while still in college and has continued offering private instruction since that time. Tim is also a music arranger and worship music leader at Elk Grove Baptist Church.
