Tim Robertson is a guitarist, composer, arranger, performer, and teacher located in New Orleans and working in a broad variety of idioms—from arena rock to symphonic concert, Bourbon Street cover bands to experimental studio work. After graduating Duke University with a music degree, he took in hand the guitar and became one of New Orleans’ most respected commercial players.
After the levees failed in New Orleans, he found himself in the New York area where, needing a purpose, he sought out a composition teacher. He spent a year away from home, studying with Daron Hagen and writing concert music. He has had his works played by NONME (New Orleans New Music Ensemble), the Yakima Seasons Festival Orchestra, Tulane University Wind Quintet as well as others.
Currently, Tim can be seen performing around the country with Amanda Shaw, or in his adopted hometown where he is a fixture on the music scene. He continues his New York studies with Hagen and juggles his professional life with his personal composition life, sometimes fusing and confusing the two.
