I've been teaching clarinet lessons for over 40 years, all levels, including adults. I especially enjoy teaching middle school students and beginners. Graduated from University of North Texas with a Bachelor's in clarinet performance, and was a member of the Air Force Band. I have taught private lessons in public school band programs in Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin and New England, where I prepared students for auditions and had many place in region and all-state bands.

Learning to read music and transfer the notes on the page to an instrument holds great cognitive benefit for children. From better math skills to improved reading comprehension. And of course there's the emotional expression to be learned. There's a particular technique on clarinet I teach my students as soon as they are able that always gets them started on playing musically. As a teacher, it's always wonderful to hear that happen!

About Cindy

I have been teaching private clarinet lessons for over 40 years. I teach my students, beginner to advanced, how to best control the instrument in order to express themselves through music. I know which pieces in the clarinet literature will teach phrasing and musicality to a young player. We play

Absolutely amazing! I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.
Erin
Helped me with Introductory Physics 1 and 2! Really helped me understand the material rather than just doing the problems for me! Great tutoring!
Angela
Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

I structure most lessons according to the following:
- Basics of ukulele
- Understanding chords and chord charts
- Strum patterns
- Finger picking
- Songwriting (optional)

I'll teach you concepts via songs. If you have song requests, I'll definitely do my best to accommodate!

About Tammy

With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I am only accepting online students. If you are located in Manhattan, NYC, I am resuming in-person lessons on a case-by-case basis in the fall. For students located elsewhere, I will be making periodic visits in an effort to ensure the best musical development

Tammy was so patient and fun! Our 10-year old daughter loved the ukulele lesson and is looking forward to her next one. She even asked if she could have more than one lesson a week!
Jonathan S.
Tammy was friendly, adaptable to my specific skill level and musical taste, and most importantly, patient. Just like the ukulele itself, it was a pleasant experience and i look forward to having more classes with her.
Katrina G.
Ms. Tammy is an excellent teacher. She’s passionate about her profession and makes her lessons fun for my son. My son is 4 years old and is taking her class online. At first I thought he would be intimidated, but teacher Tammy did a great job and eased my son into it. My son has been inspired and enjoys the lessons. Its also built his confidence and esteem. He finds joy in playing for his classmates, friends, and family.

"My 8 year old son really enjoys his sessions with Siddharth G. His game and confidence has improved and I am positive it will get even better with additional classes. He appreciates how patient his instructor is and the positive reinforcement provided during the lessons. As a parent, I like getting updates on his progress and additional 'homework' (puzzles) he gets - definitely comes in handy during this quarantine phase.
We definitely recommend Siddharth G. to anyone looking to learn chess, improve or get to the next level."

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
