I teach students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical piano skills. I typically use Bastien books, and also incorporate sheet music. My lessons are challenging, and fun!

About Tammy S.

Hi, I’m Tammy!
I’m committed to providing the highest quality and level of musical instruction, in a warm and encouraging environment. My desire is for students to enjoy and excel at playing the piano. I’m patient, upbeat, and like to see students really understand music and grow in their ability to play. My lessons are challenging, but fun. I’m good at forming strong personal connections and find this to be an integral part of learning. I like students to choose some of their own music and participate in choosing their direction and pace. Playing songs they know and like helps to facilitate at home practice and faster learning, as students enjoy their practice time! I've been teaching private lessons out of my home and at a local music shop for several years, and have loved helping my students learn to play and read music, prepare for recitals, and prepare for solos and accompaniment at their schools and churches. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have 13 years of experience taking piano lessons. During that time I played with my church’s music team, accompanied a choir, and became an experienced soloist and accompanist. I have experience accompanying singers, choirs, violinists, and bands. I additionally competed in music competitions and took home the highest award for piano in the state of Wisconsin, and accompanied several singers who also received highest awards. I was accepted into the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Music, but after my first year chose to shift my focus to the sciences, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology, followed by attending Northwestern Health Sciences University where I received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. After a successful career in chiropractic, I sold my practice to become a homemaker and teacher, and am excited to once again return to my first love, music.

Tammy is a great teacher. She explains things very well and stresses the importance of hand and finger placement. I highly recommend her.

Tammy has been very encouraging, patient, and accommodating with my granddaughters, including one with special needs who has difficulty understanding and following directions. There are teachers who live closer to us, but it is worth the longer drive for one who works so well with the girls. Tammy is always smiling, and the girls love piano. It’s been a great experience for us.

Tammy is a wonderful piano teacher! She is kind, patient, motivating, and explains concepts clearly. Obviously is very knowledgable of the piano. I’m 20 years old and took lessons for four years as a kid but never took them seriously. Always regretted quitting and found Tammy to get back into it. I’ve been taking lessons from her for two months and I couldn’t recommend her enough! She obviously has a passion for music and teaching it to others.

Awesome teacher! I was experiencing difficulties understanding the rhythm of a difficult piece titled Un Sospiro by Liszt. I took a lesson with Tammy and she explained the concept of the piece very well; making it easier for me to learn the piece. She is really a great teacher.

Tammy is such a kind and patient teacher. She observes how a student learns best and tailors her teaching to that student. My student enjoys lessons with Tammy and appreciates her compassion and positive attitude. I appreciate Tammy always being very organized and sincere.
