I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.
I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013, armed with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!
Over the years, I have had several private students ranging from children as young as four years old, to teenagers and adults. I have been told that I am very bubbly and friendly (yay!), which explains why most of my students are children. Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!
Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them! I am also familiar with Logic Pro and Garageband, so I can teach you to record yourself on those programs!
Currently managing a team of about 4 teachers teaching almost 50 students all over New York and Brooklyn!

Tammy is great with children. My son was immediately at ease and she really went out of her way to make his first piano lessons fun and comfortable. She has a natural gift with children and a great singing voice.
