About Carolyn

Hi, I grew up in Northern California in a family of Texan musicians, who knew from the start I'd be a musical trouble maker. From my early days of Suzuki violin, to marching band, and then to bluegrass and Billie Holiday, I make myself musically at home wherever there's a groove. Now a graduate of

Music theory teaches the basics of how music works. It's learning the language behind music. In lessons we use music theory to understand music better, play music by ear and by sight, and learn how song formation and songwriting works.

James is a true master of the art and craft of singing. He does not only have vast knowledge of vocal techniques, exercises and methods, but also truly understands how to bring out a singing voice that connects with the listener. Very detailed oriented and clearly explains how to get best results. Highly recommended!
Larry
James has been a wonderful teacher. He has greatly helped me advance in my beginning cello skills by carefully observing, demonstrating as needed, then showing me the things I can do to improve. He does this in such a manner that instead of feeling discouraged, I am even more motivated to improve. I am learning cello as an adult simply for the fun of trying something new. My wife, who played flute on scholarship through college and some professionally has noticed, and commented, on the improvement. In summary, I highly recommend James for both adults and for kids. He just has a great knack for teaching.

I feel very fortunate to have had Tammy as my dear friend and colleague for years. She possesses a contagious passion and enthusiasm for her craft. She is an absolutely inspiring performer and a very knowledgeable, gifted teacher. I recommend her wholeheartedly!
Cory W.
Ask any musician, and they will tell you that making the choice to invest in a private music instructor is a critical step in growth and development--no matter the individual's age or experience level. When you're devoting time and energy into bettering yourself, you want to know that you're learning from a friendly, accessible, and most of all qualified, teacher. Dr. Tammy Y. is all of these things and much more.

Dr. Tammy Y. never failed to challenge me in the pieces she assigned, never failed to help me prepare to my very best ability for auditions or recitals, and never failed to give her honest and helpful critique and advice to help me advance as a flutist.

To anyone looking for a private flute instructor, I would recommend highly, wholeheartedly, and very enthusiastically to learn from this amazing teacher and performer. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced, young or old, Dr. Tammy Y. provides the very best resources and sets the highest expectations for her students.

A talented, patient teacher, Gretchen epitomizes the best qualities for musical instruction. Her technical knowledge of music theory is by far the most complete and deepest of anyone I have encountered. She has encouraged the gradual emerging of a latent talent talent I never knew I had as I was always discouraged from attempting any musical education.

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
