Tim Hellane

Owner and private instructor

Hi, my name is Tim Hellane the owner and private instructor at Musician's Quest. At Musician's Quest the student can expect to receive the highest quality musical instruction available as I am dedicated to making sure each student receives the respect and attention they deserve and that the experience is a positive one for both the student and parent, as well as myself.

The joy and deep satisfaction that comes from learning and playing music, the discipline it takes and the life-lesson it teaches is what I have most wanted to impart to my students. Learning to play music is a long but rewarding journey, one that I've helped many people travel. So give yourself or your child the gift of music. I'm looking forward meeting you and/or your child. Thank You.

  • I would not recommend this business

Went there for a lesson and I thought the guy acted a little bizzare, so I never continued with him. Plus I think he is too expensive.

  • It's close
  • It was an uncomfortable environment for me

He's ok, but I have had better instructors in the past. I took lessons from him along time ago and I had to cancel a lesson due to an emergency and he charged me for the lesson anyway. So I never went back.

Customer Testimonials

Testimonial from Kathy Tytus

"My son, Logan, has been attending guitar lessons with Mr. Tim for over 2 years now. Mr. Tim is a very patient and skilled teacher. Logan has made tremendous progress and enjoys going every week. Tim's studio is convenient for us and ideal for anyone in the greater Greencastle area. Mr. Tim does a great job working from music books as well as assigning students musical tasks related to music they may be interested in. My husband, Pete, has also started lessons with Mr. Tim and he enjoys learning from the guitar book as well as some riffs from Rush and Metallica. We highly recommend Mr. Tim to anyone."

Testimonial from Brett and Julie Strausser

"Tim is a wonderful teacher and musician. We appreciate his patience with our 2 kids and the progress they are making. We really like Tim's teaching style, assigning pieces that he can accompany during the lesson time. This gives the student an opportunity to hear their contribution to a more complex work. We started our oldest son with Tim 5 years ago followed by our middle son almost 3 years ago. We hope to convince our youngest son to take up piano or guitar under Tim's fine instruction."

"Professional...affordable and efficient at teaching the guitar. Whether you are just getting started or have been playing for years, Tim will make you better!!"

"I have been playing guitar for approximately 28 years. During this time, I have taken lessons from many instructors. It wasn't until I began taking lessons from Tim Hellane that I realized, just because you know how to play does not necessarily mean you know how to teach. My previous instructors were excellent musicians, but they lacked the skill to teach their talent to the student. Tim is an extremely talented musician as well as a phenomenal instructor. Tim doesn't just show you how to play, he teaches you to understand what you are playing as well. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone as their instructor."

"My son showed almost no interest in music until he began taking guitar lessons with Mr. Tim. Now he not only enjoys playing his guitar, but he has excitedly accumulated other guitars to add to his repertoire. I feel great relief as a homeschooling mother, knowing that my son is gaining musical experience as well as a valuable skill. I also feel great satisfaction when friends who are musicians comment on how impressed they are by my son's classical guitar playing at such a young age."

"In the short time that I took lessons, I was able to learn from Mr. Tim in a way that made it enjoyable and easy. I am sure that I will be able to use what I have learned to continue to play. Guitar is easy and fun if you set your mind to it, as is piano, and you will be able to use the skills you acquire for the rest of your lives."
