At age 18 years old, Tim* came with a little backpack to the old European city of Lviv, for one purpose: To study at one of the best Music Academy of Central Europe! After successfully passing all his examinations Tim started an in-depth learning composition and instrumentation program. Studying at the Department of symphonic conducting and composition Tim learned various music styles and genres, features and use of symphonic instruments.
In pursuit of his dream of becoming a film composer, Tim eventually moved to California. While taking care of his family during his first years in California, Tim worked as a jazz piano player in restaurants throughout San Francisco while also working as a music director and instructor of different music bands in addition to doing some teaching as a guitar and piano teacher. During this time Tim also continually worked on his style of composition often spending all night on his compositions.
