McWilliams, Tim (Music)

Welcome to Music with Mr. McWilliams!


About Mr. McWilliams 

I am thrilled to be your music teacher at Oakley Elementary School!  After graduating from Appalachian State University with my M.A. in Appalachian Music in 2014, I began my career as a professional musician.  While I have performed over a thousand shows all across the United States, my passion has always been in education.  I have experience as an Instructor of Record for Appalachian State University, an Upward Bound Research Mentor, and an AmeriCorps Member with the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative.  In recent years my teaching focus has been as an instructor for guitar, banjo, mandolin, and ukulele at the Academy for the Arts.  

I am happily married to my wonderful partner, Laura and we have a beautiful daughter, son, and dog!  Besides playing music and teaching music, I love the outdoors (hiking, camping), gardening, and just hanging out with family and friends. I also enjoy a good day of board games.

I’m looking forward to working with the youth of our community and sharing my love of music with everyone!
