Tim Crosby – Intermediate Fiddle Team Instructor

Unlike so many of his pals who also took up the guitar in their early teens, Tim Crosby was not particularly interested in rock and roll. Flatt & Scruggs or Bill Monroe, though? Now you’re talking! While in college, some hippie traded Tim a mandolin for a few flatpick guitar lessons and the die was cast. These days, Crosby is the fiddle and mandolin player for Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising. At present, they’re in and out of the recording studio and in the thick of another busy performance season.

Tim’s “day job” is teaching private music lessons; he works with forty-some students weekly, ranging in age from 5 to 83. He is also a fairly prolific songwriter.
