About Tammye D.

Tammye teaches: Ages 5 and up
Teaching since: March 2000
Last sign in: Yesterday


I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to get any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

*** Specialties ***
Alto Saxophone

First lesson was great 👍🏾, my son didn't appear enthusiastic during the lesson but practiced afterwards with mouthpiece in the car. I look forward to future lessons!

She is awesome, I've learned a lot from her and I'm looking forward to keep learning. I have always wanted to learn piano and she explains everything so clear and easy. Thanks, Tammye!

Mrs. Tammye D. Took time to listen to what I had to say. My first lesson from Mrs. Tammye met my expectations of an instructor and deep down in my heart she will make me an saxophone player.

Sarah loves piano lessons with Tammye because she is calm, funny and very "laid-back" in how she approaches children and teaching the piano. These qualities are gradually drawing Sarah back to an instrument that she loved initially but had withdrawn from due to very strict and almost frightening former teachers. I am so happy to see her loving the piano again and looking forward to her practices with Tammye. Thank you, Tammye, for encouraging and realizing that learning an instrument is a marathon for some and not a sprint!

My daughter, Jolie, loves piano lessons with Tammye. She is always very excited to meet with her and recently more enthused about practicing. I strongly recommend Tammye for work with younger children.
