About Tamara
I'm a producer, instructor, singer songwriter, sound engineer, and composer residing in Brooklyn, New York. I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz,
folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to circuit bend.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar. I expect students that want voice or piano lessons to have some kind of keyboard in working condition.

*** Specialties ***

As a member of of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions.

I am also a member of New York State Music Teachers Association.

I am also a Pro Tools certified user.

Our first piano lesson with Tamara was really pleasant. She was very welcoming and attentive the whole time. I can tell my son was really enjoying the lesson. The details with the progress sheet and flash cards she provided was a plus for me. Her studio space also made the experience really great!

About Shahadoth
I teach various courses.
I specialize in preparing individuals for the SHSAT and SAT, delivering exceptional results through the augmentation of intelligence quotients (IQ).

Multiple students of mine have been accepted into Stuyvesant High School, as well as various other prestigious schools, including Townsend Harris, Bronx Science, and Brooklyn Tech.

I open students minds to advanced logical processing and am efficient in helping students process faster in engaging manners. This has proven to be both academically as well as practically beneficial to my students.

I tutor people in manners that dramatically improves their GPA and gives them the tools, work ethic and processing capabilities to maintain a 90+ GPA.

One of my students came to me with a 77 GPA. After tutoring the child for 7 months, his GPA had increased to a 98
in the second marking period of his first semester of high school. I taught him to process faster, work with discipline so as to focus better, and be determined on top of course materials. I tutor people to be more efficient academically and practically so that the result is a better person with greater capabilities. This helps people become more self sufficient and reach their full potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
I open minds to advanced logical processing, enhancing them academically and practically. I teach all High School courses other than foreign languages excluding Spanish. I also teach college courses including Accounting, Business, Calculus, English, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Math Literacy and Statistics.

I've only had two sessions and I already have a better sense of control over my voice and all the anatomy associated with singing. Rebecca has a non judgemental demeanor which helps students, especially beginners such as myself to feel more comfortable and relaxed. She is knowledgeable and I was impressed with the way she assessed my range, and analyzed my voice in the initial session then set realistic goals to improve my control and the quality of my voice.

Allison is VERY sweet, patient and thorough! I really enjoyed working with her. I learned SO much in just one hour!! I was hesitant about taking the lessons as I've tried lessons at my local Michael's store but didn't get much out of it. One on one with Allison was the right decision. If you are just thinking about it - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson with Allison :)
