Tara D

Instruments:

 Tara Rose Davison is been involved in music her whole life. Her father is a professional composer and her mom is a professional dancer. Thus she was lucky enough to be surrounded by the arts since infancy. She began her piano studies at age 5 and knew she would be a musician from the very beginning.  Tara has garnered much success as an opera singer, performing throughout the United States and Internationally in roles such as Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte, Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus, Sister Rose in Dead Man Walking and Giannetta in L’Elisir d’Amore. By the age of 21, she was the youngest finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Western Region Auditions.  In the same year, Tara was introduced to the under-recognized genre of art songs with classical guitar accompaniment. From that moment on she was hooked. In September of 2006, during her first year of graduate school, Tara began her classical guitar studies with Masakazu Ito of the Lamont School of Music. Ever since her first lesson she has been passionate about classical guitar and has shifted her focus from opera by devoting herself to the study of music for classical guitar and soprano. Less than three years after taking her first classical guitar lesson, Tara gave her debut recital of art songs for soprano and classical guitar, performing both a singer and classical guitarist. She has since made an annotated bibliography of all works for voice and guitar and in 2010 released her first album, Love Songs & Lullabies from Spain and South America for Soprano & Classical guitar.  Tara has received scholarships from the Metropolitan Opera National Council, Society of Singers, Phi-Beta, Palisades Symphony and Westside Junior Philharmonic.  She has performed in master classes with William Vendice, John Hall and Blanche Thebom.  She received a Bachelors of Music from California State University at Northridge in 2006 and a Masters of Music from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2009.  While studying at University of Colorado, Tara was the sole recipient of the Berton Coffin scholarship, the highest honor for any music major.  Tara Rose currently performs recitals of music for classical guitar and voice around Southen California and studies classical guitar with Matt Greif and Scott Morris at Cal-State University Dominguez Hills. She is also working on a second album, Ariette Italiane, which will be released in 2013.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students are advised to start off by learning to play on a half sized or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Older students may wish to start on an electric guitar, as long as they can hold the guitar comfortably and competently. There are many different student model guitars, which will set you back $150 - $200. This does not include the price for cables and an amplifier, which will be a necessary purchase for electric guitar players. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student a greater chance to enjoy their learning.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
At Musika, we appreciate that every student learns at their own pace. As such, our experienced teachers produce customized guitar lessons specifically for the requirements of each individual student. Our teachers can design lessons for any student, regardless of their age, experience or ability. Some of the things students can expect to learn during their lessons are; learning all the notes of the guitar, playing and rhythmic techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, how to read musical notation and tablature, learning how to play a variety of different chords, such as open and barre chords, and music theory. Over time, as each student progresses, they will learn how to piece everything they have learned together, in order to form complete compositions. Students can learn to play their favourite songs, or even to write their music!
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether you are a beginner looking to get started and learn the basics, or an advanced player looking to push their skills that little bit further, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve those goals. It can take several months before you start to see serious progress towards your goals, as you slowly develop the techniques and skills over time. The quickest and most efficient way to achieve your guitar playing goals is to take regular lessons and practice diligently.
Most children will start out by playing simple songs on one or two strings, before moving on to learning how to play open guitar chords. Teachers will show them how to read music, and also how to read chord charts to start learning their favorite songs. Students can also be taught classical guitar from a young age - beginner methods are very similar regardless of the style being taught.
