Timothy Del Collo started to play piano, as a young teenager, at Settlement School of Music, in Philadelphia. He earned his bachelors degree in music theory at Temple University, while studying piano under Dr. Mikhail Yanovitsky. Before his time at Temple, he studied piano with Kim Barrosso at Rutgers University. Tim is now a masters student at Temple, studying composition under professor Jan Krsywicki. He has composed for the acclaimed string trio, Sound Energy. Recently, his work has been performed by the Temple Youth Orchestra, as part of a collaboration project, at the Trinity Church in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Timothy believes that composition is essential while studying music theory, as it enables students to understand voice leading and harmony, as well as applies the practice of notation. Residing in Philadelphia, Timothy also teaches private theory and piano lessons.
