About Tammye D.

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 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.

Tammy has enough patience for the least attentive learners.

I love Tammye. As an adult beginner with no prior experience in piano, my first piano lesson with her was a joy! I see her once in a week and i must say i always cant wait for the next lesson. She makes me feel comfortable at her home studio with great tutoring skills.

My son enjoys learning Saxophone from Tammye. I observed that she adopts to the pace of hi s learning. She is also flexible on timing. Highly recommended.

Tammye has been my daughters piano teacher going on five years now. She is laid back and my daughter has always enjoyed playing the piano. She has never dreaded lesson or asked to not play. I've heard of some kids crying after lessons and this has never ever been the case with Tamye. My daughter started out loving lessons with Tamye and still does... she is in middle school now. She has never felt pressured. She has always come away from the lessons having learned something new and now plays beautifully. This year my five year old boy has started lessons with Ms. Tammye and he also is enjoying them. Tamye has been the perfect teacher for our family. We took a summer break to try out a local music school (same price and we had to drive there) and it didn't compare to the quality we get with Ms. Tammye. As long as our kids are playing piano they'll be having Ms. Tammye as their teacher.

This "teacher" doesn't know anything about music, let alone playing the trumpet, or any instrument. Complete HACK with zero skills who shouldn't even be charging $15 an hour!!! Also, she was extremely rude in all correspondence with me. I'm beyond thankful that I didn't have to smell her likely putrid, unwashed, unkempt stench through the webcam or in person. Stay FAR away.

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.
