I wasn't Tom's student per se but he and I went over lots of material for our various cover bands and he's a very thorough, patient teacher, very adamant about getting parts exactly right but willing to listen to occasional disagreements. highly recommended!

my experience

Tom really knows his way around a bass. Each time I go for a lesson, i leave happy about the things we've accomplished in the lesson. Anything that i would like to learn Tom makes it possible for me to do so. I started getting lessons in order to not slow down on my playing. With my schedule constantly changing Tom has been very nice at accommodating when possible.

About Catherine
Soprano with over seven years of classical training, four at a collegiate level. I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance and have extensive study in the areas of music theory, sight reading, dictation, music history, vocal literature and vocal pedagogy.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a voice teacher, I will provide a well-rounded approach to singing, focusing on establishing healthy singing technique, as well as strengthening a singer's musicianship and sight-reading skills. Each student will receive an individualized lesson that addresses his or her unique vocal needs and goals. I am available to help prepare for auditions, performances in a choral or soloist setting, or just help you sing with proper support, richer tone, and increased confidence!
My teaching is based in the Italian singing technique, which focuses on align
ed posture, expansion and resistance to collapse of the diaphragm, and a balanced mix of nasal and mouth resonance (chiaroscuro). This approach can be carried into all styles of singing. I have experience performing and teaching many styles, ranging from opera to art song to jazz.
I am available for in-home and Skype lessons. Please send me a message if you would like more information!

*** Specialties ***
Art song, German Lieder, French Mélodie; Conversational French; working knowledge of German and Italian; working knowledge of Russian and Czech diction; choral conducting; study of 16th-20th century performance practice; courses in educational psychology, primary educational methods, and early childhood education; university theater courses; script and text analysis

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

TAMAR IS A GEM

Tamar is a gem!

I have been working with her for the past year and she has helped me completely transform my academic situation.

I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I am not only doing my work, but she breaks down the material for me in such a way that it is easy to understand. Tamar puts in hours of her own time to create tests and study guides which has helped give me the extra advantage i need. I recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the best tutors and individuals ever.

About Andrea
I am a comedy writer and screenwriter based in Brooklyn, NY.

I specialize in creative writing, academic writing, and college admissions essays. Whether you or your child wants to improve their writing, loves writing but experiences writer's block or an inability to actually DO the writing, or wants to workshop essays for a class, application, or personal project, I am excited to work together with my students and help them achieve their goals.

At Tufts University I studied English with a focus in creative writing. In school I wrote a mix of analytical papers and creative works, culminating in a fiction thesis. In school I taught a successful weekly creative writing class to homeschooled students, helping them improve their writing and create new and engaging stories that they later submitted to contests and magazines around the Northe
ast. Since graduating from school, I have gravitated towards comedy writing. I approach my teaching and tutoring with humor and believe that tutoring and learning is a fun experience. Combatting students' writer's block has always been a personal favorite challenge of mine as well!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

My son had a wonderful creative writing experience with Andrea. She used fun prompts and writing exercises and provided extensive feedback. We loved that she encouraged the students to submit their writings for publication which resulted in our son getting one of his stories published in a national kid's literary magazine last summer.

I have been working with Paul for a little over a year now and with his help, I have accomplished more than I ever imagined. He not only helped me with difficult math classes such as AP Calculus AB and standardized tests like the SAT but also helped me to become a better student overall. Paul also helped me with college applications and decisions which I really found helpful in deciding where I should apply. Paul is an amazing tutor not only for how much he is versatile between different subjects, whether it be AP Calculus to SAT to college essays, but also to how much he cares about your health and wellbeing. With my time working with him, Paul is someone who I can rely on for good advice and look up to.

I have been studying with Paul for two years now and have found that I have seen an improvement in my English over the years. He really helps in developing and structuring essays by building on vocab and allowing a writer to get their point clearly across without hesitation. I started my lessons with him before the start of my ninth grade year and found myself at a pretty comfortable position for my English class.
