About

True confidence is the key to star quality singing, and that comes from being prepared through education, diligence, and experience. This is what learning from Tim will give you. Making the student feel comfortable and relaxed is his first priority. He understands that students who quit taking lessons do because they feel pressured and scrutinized like they've failed. Students who leave Tim's guidance usually do because they have succeeded.

Considered by many, one of the best voices in his field, with a range of 4 1/2 octaves at the age of 55, Tim is an example of what good vocal technique can do for a career in music. Throughout his 40 years of singing professionally, he's shared the stage with the likes of Peter Frampton, Cheap Trick, Dokken, Yngwie Malmsteen,  and many other top performers. 

He started teaching in 1988 at the request of a local music store in Pittsburgh with around 30 students per week, instructing experienced professionals, semi-professionals and talented amateurs with the determination to become professionals. Later, he taught students age 12-82 at another music store in Washington, PA, by referral of the former voice teacher, an opera singer who tested Tim on his knowledge of classical voice technique, ear training, improvisation, and she was very impressed by his teaching style.  

 

Tim was awarded and celebrated as one of Pittsburgh's most talented and successful rock vocalists in the early to mid 90's with Triple-X, who broke attendance records from Erie to Baltimore, some of which still stand today. Making music and teaching it became a full-time job. With a full-time schedule with the band, he opted to teach from his home, to a handful of students who proved their passion for singing, the ambition to learn and the self-discipline needed to become great singers. One of those students was Brian Balich the virtuous voice of Argus, signed to Cruz Del Sur Music making great company with Tim's band Pharaoh, their top-selling recording artists since 2003. 

 

Tim is also the voice of Control Denied, led by the legendary godfather of death metal, Chuck Schuldiner, the Guitarist/Singer of Death. Their one and only album was released in 2000 on Nuclear Blast Records which features the top heavy metal bands in the world. Titled "The Fragile Art Of Existence", their debut broke the boundaries between traditional, progressive and brutal metal. Since Chuck's passing in 2001, their fan base continues to grow and tribute bands have emerged all over the world. 

 

Simultaneously, Tim had earned his wings as a Recording Engineer/Producer at Soundscape Studios (now renamed Tonic Studios) which he co-founded in 1995, with owner Doug Kasper under the guidance of Chief Engineer Matt Harrington, who was formerly his stage manager and sound engineer in Dr. No. Together, they recorded a multitude of artists in every genre of music imaginable. Tim lent his talent for harmony to many of those clients, and as a Producer, he bestows a unique talent for working one-on-one with vocalists, coaching and capturing performances far beyond what they knew they had inside them. 

Tim Aymar's POWER VOCALIST method of vocal technique is a mix of ear training, theory, belt and bel canto techniques, and voice therapy, with focus on creating a confident, healthy vocal technique that can be used for ANY style you wish to sing. The result is a naturally sounding star quality voice, in all registers, with confident control, accurate pitch, greater range, projection, fuller tone, flexibility, and stamina.

Always a great lesson with Tim!!! He gives helpful feedback throughout the lesson so I am able to understand what I am doing well and also how to adjust and correct any issues as we go. This is extremely helpful in knowing how best to approach practicing during the week. And also in preventing me from developing bad or incorrect habits.

Tim has a great ability to hear and provide feedback on both main things I need to adjust but also picking up on more subtle things that I can work on or correct. It is a huge help to have that feedback!
