Tim Bredrup has a music degree from Valparaiso University.  A true renaissance musician – he began classical piano training at the young age of three and has since become a whiz on the guitar and bass, a mandolin aficionado and also a guy who loves to just bang on his drums.  He even sings barbershop quartet and also performs regularly with his “adult” band Fletcher Rockwell!  But most of all, Tim loves inspiring others to love music as much as he does and that’s his focus in every session.   

Tim had the privilege of speaking about the benefits of music education in early childhood development at the DuPage AEYC Conference in October of 2014.  Click here to see excerpts from his presentation!
