Tamara is an excellent teacher. She’s patient with students of all levels including special needs. Her attention to detail holds the student’s focus and the learning is very clear. I recommend her especially because she lets the student guide her in the way she/he learns best.
She is absolutely fantastic. Devoted to her students acquiring not only the skills but the love of music and the deeper understanding of the structure of music. The fact that she can work with a wide range of ages is due to her patience and professionalism And I highly recommend her. The musical knowledge that she gave me will last a lifetime
Tamari is a highly qualified, skilled, experienced piano, voice and guitar teacher who is very accomplished in teaching students of all ages. As a colleague of hers for about 10 years, I can testify to her musicianship, enthusiasm, organization, and ability to tailor appropriate lessons to each student's skill level. She has the ability to reach beyond basic note reading and motivate her students to want to improve for the joy of music. This is every teacher's goal, and she does it beautifully. She teaches them how to listen so they can grow their own musical appreciation and abilities, and do so in a comfortable, caring way. She is a giving, creative, dedicated teacher and I highly recommend her.
I have had a wonderful experience studying piano with Tamari. She is an enthusiastic teacher making the lesson not only rewarding but also joyful. We had to go virtual because of Covid-19 and Tamari spent a lot of time getting all of us familiarized with virtual lessons. She is very dedicated, patient, caring, has a warm personality and she really enjoys teaching.
I have had the pleasure of being in a few classes taught by Tamari. The Corona virus shortened the classes, but the ones I had at Olli (Uconn Waterbury) were a lot of fun, taught with great amount of energy, and were taught with a lot of imagination. Tamari also took the time to spend with each student as needed. She was not only teaching keyboard finger placement, but was right away stressing the importance of timing in order to play with others. As a voice teacher, she also stressed the importance of listening not just playing. My favorite part. The only regret I have is not being able have more classes at Olli with her, before the virus took hold. Anyone thinking of taking classes with her will be rewarded big time with a great instructor.
I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years. She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step. The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.
Hi Everyone, 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.
Tamari is a remarkably accommodating teacher. Uses instructional strategies that are effective and appropriate. Also, presents new material clearly and logically. Demonstrates enthusiasm and interest in lesson presentation. My daughter loves learning classical piano with Tamari.
Tamari is a wonderfully creative, inspiring teacher. Her sensitivity, her talent, her obvious love of teaching, all combine to make a joyful learning experience that keeps our students (older adults) coming back for more!
It has been my pleasure to make the acquaintance of Ms. Tamari W. and I would highly recommend her for piano (and/or)voice lessons for anyone from beginner to intermediate to advanced. I have also had the good fortune of seeing Ms. Tamari perform in concert which further displayed her talents. Her knowledge of music and critiques and pinpoint commentary get right to the heart of the matter where the student needs to improve and grow. She is very patient and experienced with students of all levels and makes the process fun as well as rewarding.
Tamari is a Wonderful piano and voice teacher. Her lessons are great because of her amazing personality -Always happy and joyful... She has many years of experience as a teacher ,as an accompanist ,as a director etc Kids or adults will have great time learning from her
Tamari teaches yoga like a musician. She brings extraordinary music to exercise to. She is patient with students “ales and wails”. If you come to class all the time she gets to know what you are capable of, thereby helps to stretch you further in your yoga practice. She is patient. She is also patient with newbies. Nature is patient, yet all is accomplished, and that’s kind of what her attitude is.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
