I currently teach piano, voice, guitar, flute, clarinet, and trumpet in Little Rock, AR.
I love to teach and instill a love for music in my students, and I’ve always found great job satisfaction in knowing that I am passing on a skill that can be used in numerous ways during a person’s entire lifetime.
I’ve taught in various areas of music for 25 years, with Little Rock holding the last five, and look forward to increasing my student base here.
I am experienced musician in multiple areas of music, and have been teaching for over 20 years. I grew up taking piano lessons, both in the United States and abroad, and had the privilege of taking piano lessons for nearly five years with the prestigious Royal Schools of Music in the United Kingdom. I have performed in numerous competitions and recitals, winning first place medals and high marks, and have had the opportunity to perform in many different venues, both here and abroad. I trained in classical voice under the direction of Drs. Kimberle Moon and Renita Koehn, and have participated in choral performances as both singer and conductor. I was the staff accompanist (piano) for the university I attended, and filled in as a substitute for the piano professors when they were away. I enjoyed trumpet lessons at university level as well. I’ve played the clarinet since the age of 12, kept 1st chair position in band, and played in my university orchestra as well. I worked as a pianist in Houston, TX, at the Lyric Centre, and as an accompanist for the public school choirs across Houston. I was the accompanist for the music troupe for the Junior League of Houston, and accompanied choirs across the city, before founding and directing several of my own community choirs, in the United States and Ireland, some of which I also accompanied on the piano. I’ve held the position of music director and choir director for churches in Texas, Florida, Mississippi, and Massachusetts, and also have experience in handbells (playing and directing), drama, and theatre, and have been teaching piano, voice, flute, guitar, trumpet, and related instruments in Little Rock for the past five years.+ Read More

Tara took my daughter to levels she did not think she could achieve. We were delighted with Tara's instruction and look forward to a long relationship with her as a teacher and a friend!
