Ask any musician, and they will tell you that making the choice to invest in a private music instructor is a critical step in growth and development--no matter the individual's age or experience level. When you're devoting time and energy into bettering yourself, you want to know that you're learning from a friendly, accessible, and most of all qualified, teacher. Dr. Tammy Y. is all of these things and much more. Dr. Tammy Y. never failed to challenge me in the pieces she assigned, never failed to help me prepare to my very best ability for auditions or recitals, and never failed to give her honest and helpful critique and advice to help me advance as a flutist. To anyone looking for a private flute instructor, I would recommend highly, wholeheartedly, and very enthusiastically to learn from this amazing teacher and performer. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced, young or old, Dr. Tammy Y. provides the very best resources and sets the highest expectations for her students.
