Piano Performance, Associate of Arts, president's list from Valencia College
I am currently teaching most piano lessons online. I am also available for a few in-person lessons in my home studio, if certain safety precautions are followed... more about that at the end of this section.
Whether your lessons are online or in person, a typical lesson with me will include things like this:
-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.
-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.
-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.
-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.
You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. Please contact me after you sign up to discuss

Want to learn bluegrass, old-time, or Irish fiddling? With 18 years playing fiddle and 10 years teaching, I have the experience to help a beginner gain basic skills or an advanced student analyze bowing patterns, moving double stops, and more. From the student who is picking up the fiddle for the first time to the fiddler who’s been playing their whole life, I hope to inspire a love for traditional fiddle music and culture.
I was first inspired to play the fiddle by my grandfather, Tom Smith. Many of my cousins started learning traditional instruments around the same time and we had a lot of fun jamming at family gatherings and at music festivals in our home state of Indiana. In 2015 I was proud to carry the family tra

I can help you develop your confidence in 'putting a song across' to an audience (even if it's just an audience of 1!) by getting into the MEANING of the song, its place in the narrative of the show, play or Musical, and how to convey that meaning through a variety of techniques and types of musical inflection. I also help you find your pitch and your own unique voice.
About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm TamarI and I can't wait to meet you! We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you p
I’d like to tell all about what a wonderful experience I’m having with Tamari as my piano teacher.
First about me. I’m a 70 year old male with virtually no hands-on music experience or knowledge (other than listening). My parents forced me to take piano music lessons 60+ years ago which I totally resisted. Playing piano was a sissy thing and after a few months they gave up.
For the past 50 years I regretted my youthful error. So when I had the chance to take a piano/keyboard class from Tamari, through OLLI at Uconn I jumped at the chance.
Tamari started the first class totally prepared. Not only did she have startup handouts geared to beginner level students. She also came with extension cords and power outlet strips so all could set up comfortably. Right away we (9) were playing notes and learning. Tamari gave us terrific learning tips (beyond Every Good Boy Does Fine) to make grasping lessons much easier.
Sadly, the Virus hit, and self-isolation became the norm. So Tamari set up her classes through the ZOOM video conferencing software. Wonderfully, a fun learning experience.
One example from yesterday. Tamari helped me learn that just playing the notes , G A G C B by pecking at the keys isn’t music. There’s a certain rhythm needed to make the sound correct and enjoyable. And after, patiently, staying with me, turn after turn, I got it right. Bravo to her and me.
Let me wrap this up by saying, I couldn’t be happier or more satisfied with Tamari as my Piano teacher.

When learning to speak Japanese, you’ll come across suffixes used to address people called “honorifics.” Japanese honorifics are an important way to convey respect, formality, and friendship to those you interact with. Both formal and informal honorifics are common in Japanese, which is why every speaker needs to get the basic suffixes down. To an English speaker, the concept of honorifics may seem new, but the fact is, we already use terms, such as Miss, Mr., and Dr. as prefixes. But …
