Moments is Tim's seventh CD, released in October 2015. The album was nominated for Classical Album of the Year by solopiano.com.
The best moments and memories aren't necessarily the weddings, graduations, and births, but the smaller events in your life: your child dancing, pets greeting you at the door, a touching book or piece of music. A happier, shorter, more major-key album, Moments tells the story about some moments in Tim's life while giving the listeners time to reflect on their own personal moments. For the full background about this album and its tracks, see Moments: Behind the music.
Galaxy is Tim's sixth CD, released in May 2015. This album includes all of the tracks from Tim's 2014-2015 track-a-month campaign. Galaxy was named Best Instrumental/Piano Album in June 2015 by The Akademia Music Awards, and it is currently nominated by One World Music for Best Solo Piano Album of 2015.
Space... the final frontier... the tracks on this album are inspired by the awe and beauty of space. Almost a 50/50 mix of minor and major pieces, Galaxy includes both energetic pieces (Orbit, Perspective, Starlight) and calmer pieces to capture certain moods (Night, Time's Arrow, Vast). For the full background about this album and its tracks, see Galaxy: Behind the music.
Storm is Tim's fifth CD, released in April 2014. This album includes all of the tracks from Tim's 2013-2014 track-a-month campaign. Storm was named Best Solo Piano Album of 2014 by One World Music, and it was nominated by Enlightened Piano Radio for Album of the Year.
A different mood than his previous albums, Storm contains almost all minor tracks, reaching a deeper emotional depth including both anger and heartbreak. This album is dedicated to anyone who has experienced life's difficulties: the death of a loved one, illness, job loss, a breakup or divorce, or any other significant setback. These tracks describe a journey from timid hope (Anticipation, Ice, See You Soon, Setting Sail) to disappointment and questioning (Stolen, Transitions, Meditation: Calm, Storm, Waiting, Adrift) and ultimately to healing (Forgiveness, Peace).
In an era where individual tracks are the norm, Storm was composed as a single project that's meant to be experienced from the first track to the last, while also providing tracks that are memorable enough to stand alone.

Opus Four is Tim's fourth CD, released in 2013. Opus Four received nominations from SoloPiano.com (2013 Album of the Year in the Classical/Modern Classical category) and two from Hollywood Music in Media: Best Contemporary Instrumental Song (A Moment of Joy) and Best Classical piece (Adagio Sostenuto).
This album includes all of the tracks from Tim's 2012 track-a-month campaign. Unlike Tim's other CDs, where almost every track had a specific dedication or inspiration, Opus Four's song titles are drawn from inspiration or the emotion evoked by the music itself. Tracks are written about family (birth of a daughter, a father battling cancer), written about the moment of the track's inspiration (A Moment of Joy, Winter Dreams), or simply written as music for the sake of music (Waltz in F Minor, Adagio Sostenuto, Persian Rhapsody). As with all Tim's CDs, there is a meditation piece to calm your mood, and Opus Four also includes a closing track, Chasing Glory, that will knock your socks off.
There is a range of pieces from contemplative to energetic, from classical to contemporary - you're sure to love it! Download the CD liner notes in PDF, or visit the store to buy the CD and sheet music.

Two tracks are for his favorite composer, Antonin Dvorak, using familiar themes of Dvorak's music. There is a range of pieces from contemplative to energetic, from classical to contemporary - there are sure to be a number of enjoyable pieces for the solo piano listener!
