Timothy Gay sits in with us ON THE DEAN'S LIST.
Timothy is a multi-faceted, multi-talented young man. A native of Detroit, Michigan, Timothy grew up in a household that nurtured his gifts and talents. Through his parents support, he blossomed into a fantastic musician as a vocalist and saxophonist.

He was so enthralled with his healing he became a certified Theta Healing practitioner.
Currently, Timothy leads the modern-progressive jazz band Rare Standard, which is entering its 4th year.
