Tim Sullivan

Multi-instrumentalist, teaching artist, and social entrepreneur, Tim “Sully” Sullivan has been an active performer and educator for over 20 years, having lived in Chicago, New Orleans, and New York City prior to his current home of Philadelphia. He has performed, toured, and recorded with a wide array of artists ranging from nearly a dozen NEA Jazz Masters, to funk legends Fred Wesley and George Porter Jr., to the “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin.

Shortly after moving to New York in 2009 to teach for Jazz at Lincoln Center, Tim was invited to attend Teachers College at Columbia University, where he served as Community Music Fellow and taught at Teachers College Community School in Harlem. Situated just blocks from the Apollo Theater, at TCCS he created a music curriculum based entirely on the musical history and socio-cultural significance of the Apollo and has since worked together with the Apollo Education Program as a curriculum writer, teaching artist, and tour guide.

While remaining active in New York with The Apollo, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and teaching privately, in 2021 Tim founded PHL GOOD MUSIC, an innovative music program and social enterprise dedicated to bringing people together and generating social good in Philadelphia and beyond.
