Since his Childhood Timm plays Drumset in different Youth- and School-Orchestras and gets also lessons in piano and aural training. At the age of 16 Timm starts working with the local Percussion Group in his hometown Diepholz as instructor and arranger – some years later more and more Drumlines are interested in his work and Timm holds Clinics and Workshops all around northern Germany. After finishing school, Timm studies audio engineering and finishes this in 1997 – during this period of time his work with drum corps and marching bands also gets bigger and bigger, so in 1998 Timm and a friend and musician decide to found marchingmusic.de to publish their own arrangements. After ten years of business, machingmusic.de got the biggest German publishing company for marching band and drum corps-music.

In addition to his work as an arranger, timm does some mixing-jobs as an audio engineer and plays drums in a gala-band and Fusion/Jazz Band. As the director of band music in the N.M.V. (northern German music-association) he works out courses of instruction and plans musical further trainings.

As a clinican, Timm holds Marching Percussion Workshops in Germany, Austria, Denmark ans the Netherlands. Also Timm is the founder of the Green Beats Percussion Ensemble. He says, "I´m proud to have all the new Majestic XTD Drums here [at Green Beats]. The sound of the drums is marvelous - clear Aattacks, warm and long sustain. Very crispy snares, singing toms and cool phat basses make the whole ensemble sound very clear and transparent. The Galaxy Blue finish is very nice and works great for our video shoots. Also I´d like to thank Majestic for the great support with instruments and logistical help for my workshops."

Timm endorses Sticks and Malltets from Innovative Percussion and Majestic Marching Drums.
