Hello! I'm Tara and I am so excited to be teaching violin, viola, cello, and upright bass privately! My favorite part of teaching one-on-one or in small groups is being able to see concept really click with students and finding new ways to teach and reinforce skills.
I graduated from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Music Education. I have taught as a general music teacher for the last two and a half years in Arizona and in the Indianapolis Public School system.
