"From the very first lesson I was amazed at Tamara's unending patience and total focus on my son, which was contagious- I couldn't believe a 6-year-old would so happily and eagerly sit still for an hour, but Tamara's creative and fun approach to the work totally engaged my son, while Tamara's belief in him and expectation that he would succeed made Tim excited to learn and eager to each week to show off his progress. Tim has been studying for less than a year and already, at just 6, he can play complicated songs using both hands with multiple octaves, playing chords and harmonies, and he is so proud of himself when he plays something well- he just beams. Tamara is such an amazing and one-of-a-kind teacher- her love for her work is apparent in her commitment to her students.”
I am an adult learner who has been instructed by many piano teachers over the last 30 years including college faculty music professors, during my college years, and a steady string of “professional” private instructors. I achieved only marginal results. Then I met Tamara Jazz. Let me tell you something, she’s absolutely the best teacher I’ve ever met. Do you suffer from an injury or strain? Under Tamara’s instruction, you will learn how to use your hands, fingers, elbows, shoulders, and body weight correctly that will give your music a fluid and pleasing sound—and you’ll do it effortlessly and pain free regardless of how simple or complex the piece may be. Do you need to improve your sight reading ability? Tamara Jazz is an excellent sight reader and will show you specific strategies you can immediately employ that will improve your own. Are you simply a beginner and don’t know where to start? Tamara is the most patient, technically proficient, understanding yet results oriented teacher you’ll ever find. Whether you are a beginner, an intermediate or advanced player, Tamara Jazz will help you achieve your goal. She’s the best I’ve ever seen.
“Tamara started teaching my son (10 years old) about 6 months ago. He has made a lot of progress in this time, and Tamara did a great job teaching him. Tamara Jazz is very professional & knowledgeable and obviously has a strong musical academic background, but she also manages to communicate very well with my son and make the lessons fun - every week he is looking forward to meet her and learn new things. I strongly recommend Tamara as a music teacher.”
