Music Mr. Timothy Beutel
I was born in Darien, IL and lived there until I was five years old. At that time my family moved to Central Illinois where I grew up in Tremont, just a few minutes away from Morton. After high school I attended Bradley University where I graduated with a degree in Vocal Music Education in 2009. I also graduated with my Master's Degree in Music Education from Illinois State University in 2015. When I am not in school, I am either with my wonderful wife Melissa and our kids or my barbershop quartet, After Hours. Melissa and I were married in 2009, and we are current Tremont residents. We have two children, Lincoln and Gwendolyn, and they keep us busy! Melissa and I also enjoy serving with our musical abilities at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Groveland, IL. My quartet, After Hours, competed for many years in International barbershop competitions, eventually winning the 2018 International Championship, a lifelong goal. We do quite a bit of touring on the weekends, throughout the country and we have 4 available studio albums. We even have a website you can visit, www.facebook.com/ahquartet I absolutely love coming to work every day, working with students at Grundy. I love watching them grow as young musicians.
