Tim Doherty - piano, guitar, bass
Tim began a personal study of the guitar at age 12. Initially drawn to the soulful and expressive sound of blues guitarists, he quickly began to discover a love for numerous styles. He later began playing piano, bass guitar, and other instruments including ukulele and tabla! Tim began studying with minimalist pianist/composer Nik Bärtsch in Zurich, Switzerland in the fall of 2015.
Tim plays in various local bands spanning many styles. Whether playing with violinists at wedding ceremonies, loud guitarists in clubs, or improvising in intimate venues, Tim is thrilled to be living a life full of music!
As a teacher, Tim strives to bring his own passion and excitement for music to each students life, and to bring patience and a positive attitude to encourage every individual to meet their musical goals. Whether the student is interested in studying Bach, playing their first guitar solo, or writing their first country song, Tim is ready to turn his amp up to eleven!
Brad Goff - piano, guitar, bass, voice
Brad discovered his love of music in the sixth grade when two of his best friends said they were starting a band. Not knowing what a bass guitar was exactly, he told his father it was something he simply had to try- he began taking music lessons, and the rest is history. Over the course of the next decade, Brad’s tastes and influences grew exponentially, leading him to develop his musicality and love of harmony on a number of instruments.
Brad graduated magna cum laude from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2012 with a Bachelor of Music degree. While there, his studies ranged from classical singing to jazz piano, from composition to blues guitar, from Ghanaian rhythms to Indian ragas. It is from this eclectic mix of studies combined with an enduring love for pop and rock music that makes Brad such a versatile and skilled musician and educator.
Brad’s greatest joy has been discovering his own voice in music, and he wants nothing more than for his students to experience that same joy.
