With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

We will learn chords, strumming techniques and basic finger picking of popular songs and the classic good ol' nursery rhymes. You'll learn how to read tabs and charts, playing by ear, and even venturing into songwriting if you so desire!

I also work with a teacher whom I transition my students over to once they reach intermediate/advanced level.

About Tammy Y.

*I conduct group lessons for young children, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. Pricing will vary depending on the class size, length of class, frequency, etc

Teaching Philosophy:

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.

A bit more about myself:

Born and raised in Singapore, I started playing the piano at around the age of four. I graded summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production. Today, I am a full music educator and an actively performing singer-songwriter. I sing and play the piano, ukulele and guitar.

I teach primarily children, but have a few adult students as well. As everyone is different, I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student.

Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from your favorite jazz and pop tunes, to the well known classical pieces, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and even record them!

My 11 year old niece loves her ukulele lessons with Tammy. She is a beginner and was able to learn how to tune her ukulele and start playing songs after one week. Tammy provides all the lesson material and even short videos after each lesson to sum up what was learned and what should be practiced. I wasn't sure how remote lessons would turn out but so far everything has been great.

My daughter is loving her lessons with Tammy. We are grateful for her kindness, warmth, and abundant talents in all styles of music for piano. She listens to my daughter to better understand her and her tastes in music while also ensuring that skills and fundamentals are also developed. Tammy is always prompt and dependable as well. I recommend her for students of all ages.

A very energetic and enthusiastic instructor. Tammy came very well prepared for her lesson and brought readily custom-made materials that make the lesson very smooth. Our son is really excited about his piano lessons again!!

Thanks a lot!

We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!

Great Teacher for Toddler

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.
