Timothy Bedard, horn, joined the United States Coast Guard Band in May 2017. After six years in the USCG Band, this fall Tim will be joining the faculty at Bob Jones University Division of Music. His degrees were earned from Wheaton College and Northwestern University. Tim has performed with various orchestras and ensembles in the New England region as well as the greater Chicago area. He has performed solo concertos with the USCG Band, Marquette Symphony Orchestra, and the Bay View Music Festival Orchestra. Tim’s principal teachers include Gail Williams, Jonathan Boen, Melanie Cottle, and William C. Robinson.
Tim first attended MasterWorks during college and praises God for the formative experience it was as a Christian performing musician. He cherishes the opportunity to be on faculty this summer and looks forward to working with faculty and students by God’s grace.
Tim enjoys ultimate frisbee, golf, running, as well as reading books on theology, and working on puzzles! Tim and his wife Leah (oboe) met during their careers in the USCG Band, and have been blessed with three wonderful children: Malachi, Bethany and Jane.
