I've been teaching piano for over ten years. I am able to teach all styles of music. I teach to inspire, this is the philosophy that I teach by. I use Faber & Faber for beginner students and then I move on to Mozart, Bach, Chopin, Monk, and other great pianists.

Tamara Kachelmeier received a Master’s degree in Media Scoring from Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema. She studied voice, piano, audio engineering, music production, sound design, and composition at Gustavus Adolphus College, Berklee College of Music, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, Full Sail University and the Academy of Art University. She currently runs Ghost Dog Studios, a music and film production company residing in Brooklyn, New York. She has written music that has appeared on the History Channel and CNBC. Tamara has also mixed and created sound designs for films that have appeared at the Art of Brooklyn Festival, Comic Film Festival, Art City Short Film Festival, Genre Celebration Festival, Barcelona Planet Film Festival, Court Metrage Festival de Cones and Top Indie Film Awards. I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz, folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to bend circuits. *** 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) and New York State Music Teachers Association. I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions. *Pro Tools certified user *Have taught Grammy Nominated singer

I noticed in my first lesson Tamera was throughly prepared with all the foundational info that I would need to be able to stand before walking. She was also mindful to allow me to sing as I normally would so she could correct my errors and therefore help me achieve my best potential
