Hi! My name is Tamara and I am so excited to teach you piano online!

I have been teaching piano for 20+ years both private lessons and group lessons. I am also a certified School Teacher and I enjoy working with children and adults of all ages and ability levels. My experience teaching Music and Band in multiple schools as well as classes on Songwriting have enabled me to develop some fun music programs for my students. My youngest students have been 4 years old up to 70 years old! It's so wonderful to see everyone's unique talents.

My students really enjoy my classes and they tell me all the time how much fun they have! I believe my personal nature, patience, knowledge of music and teaching, as well as sense of humor connect well with all of my students. I love watching their progress and develop ways "outside the box" to teach them musical skills (i.e. developing games, worksheets, goals for the months ahead).

Credentials:
* Music Teacher (Elementary School & Private Music Lessons) 20 + years
* Bachelor of Music
* Bachelor of Education (Certified School Teacher)
* Music Composer & Producer
* Panelist at NAMM (Music Convention)
* Singer-Songwriter

I really look forward to hearing from you! Please let me know if you have any questions and take a look at my availability.

Best wishes to you!

Tamara

About Tamara M.

Hi! My name is Tamara! I am so excited to be teaching you piano lessons online!

I have been teaching piano for over 20 years both in private and group lessons. I am a certified School Teacher and have a lot of experience teaching Music and Band in various schools. I love working with children and adults of ALL ages and ability levels. I teach everything from Classical, Pop, Theory, Show Tunes, and even creating your very own music!

In addition to teaching, I am also a Composer & Singer-Songwriter. My students who are interested in writing their very own music love writing songs together and creating new compositions! It's a lot of fun and they enjoy performing their creations at family gatherings and especially during holiday time!

All of my lessons are tailored to each student. I am a big believer that everyone learns in their own unique way and it is so important to adapt lessons to suit each student. I always ensure that this is carried out for every lesson.

Credentials:

Tamara is a terrific teacher. She has been teaching me songwriting and I am really enjoying our classes together. She writes music for television shows and is really helpful guiding my music career goals. She is very knowledgeable and I can tell she loves to teach and inspire her students. Thank you Tamara for your awesome encouragement!

Tamara just let me know that she is teaching online at Takelessons and I am more than happy to write a review for her!
Both of my children take in-home lessons with Tamara as well as online if schedules become too busy to meet in person (or if one of my kids has a cold!)
Tamara has been such an inspiration to my kids. They practice ALL of the time now. My daughter took piano lessons from another teacher before Tamara and she rarely practiced. But now, she is making up songs and singing in the house and is just so happy! Both of my children are learning a lot from Tamara. Every lesson is planned and is structured according to the levels of each of my kids. We've even done recitals in the house and have invited neighbors to join us. It's so lovely!
We are very grateful to have Tamara teach us and we even have her over for dinner once in a while! She is so personable and extremely knowledgeable.
I highly recommend you book a lesson with Tamara. you will be very happy with her teaching style. I think her background being a teacher in the classroom really helps connect with her students. They just love her!!
