Tim .jpeg

While Tim's main instrument is the baritone sax, he also plays alto, tenor, flute, piano, as well as having a deep love for musical composition. Coming from a musical family, with both his parents working as sax players, he has had the great privilege of growing up in a culture that values creativity. He intends to carry these values forward within his own family, by creating music with his brother Nathan Barrett (trumpet), as well as engaging the community at large. He prides myself in his ability to bring people of all walks of life together through music making. He considers himself very lucky to call many of Vancouver’s best musicians his closest friends.

Some of the projects he works with include the Carnival Band (activist community brass band), Greenhorn Community Music Project (youth brass band), the Sweetpea Swing Band, Tiny Islands (specializing in schools shows), Camaro 67 (funk/afro beat band), and The Tim Sars Band (performing original jazz inspired compositions).
