Tim was my first teacher who opened up all the doors for me. I came to him knowing nothing and he gave me everything. Even after the first lesson with him I started seeing improvement. A great teacher to me is someone who can make learning fun as well as intuitive and Tim was just that! Just don't forget that practice makes perfect!

As a full-time professional performer, instructor and
recording artist, I recall my time as Tim's student as being
very valuable and inspiring. Besides being my drum set
instructor, African drumming ensemble instructor and midi
teacher he has always represented to me a source of generosity,
wisdom and great proficiency as a musician. Tim is the drummer
and educator everybody should be lucky enough to have.

I have studied with Tim on and off for two years and have
known him since the late 90's. Not only is Tim a great teacher
but also a great person. He makes the lessons fun as well as
informative. He is a truly blessed and gifted musician.

Tim Kuchta is one of the finest drummers I've had the
pleasure to work with. He listens, really listens to all that is
going on musically with the players on stage in real time: that
is a rare commodity and one of the highest compliments I can
give. When a musicians is sensitive and truly in the moment with
those he is performing with, magic happens. There is nothing
"rote" about Tim's playing. He is alive, listening and truly
interactive. I wish all drummers were as alive and as sensitive

Tim is a great team player and fantastic musician. He's
always on point and does his best and plays music with
integrity. He holds high standards for himself and passes that
on to everybody he works with. Not only that ... He is a
pleasure to work with and funny too!
