I grew up playing classical and jazz music so I have a strong foundation in music theory. I bring a fun approach to music lessons and love sharing my gift of music. My teaching style allows new musicians to develop a deep understanding and connect it with the knowledge you already have. I really enjoy seeing new musicians playing music sooner than they expected and the joy it brings to their life.
What’s not to love about music?
I truly enjoy inspiring new musicians! I know a lot of people feel like you must be born with musical talent but I believe anyone can learn with hard work and help.
Tamilla is a wonderful teacher for my eight year old son! She is well organized, has great handouts, and she knows how to keep my son interested so that he wants to keep improving his ukulele skills.
She perfectly understands where I am and what I need to progress. 😊
Tamilla is awesome! I was nervous about starting lessons as an adult but Tamilla made me comfortable and had been patient with me while I learn. Highly recommend!
Tamilla is awesome! She kept my kiddo engaged and excited throughout the lesson. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and made learning music fun for my kiddo. We are SO HAPPY we found Tamilla! 10/10 would recommend to anyone!
During my first lesson with a student we discuss our goals for lessons and make a plan. I also help my student find a rental instrument, assist them in purchasing an instrument or help them get their own instrument up to playable condition for lessons.
I have been playing music for 27 years and teaching for 12 years. I started teaching when I was in school for music and have always enjoyed sharing my passion. I have taught children as young as age three but now specialize in helping adults meet their musical goals quickly.
I offer private lessons, group immersion classes (ukulele, guitar, piano) and monthly tuition packages.
$120/ month (2) 50 minute lessons
$220/month (4) 50 minute lessons
$425 8 week immersive group class for ukulele, guitar and piano. This class prepares you to navigate learning your instrument independently after the 8 weeks or continue with intermediate private lessons. You will be playing music in 8 weeks! Very exciting, fast paced class.
I have always loved music and started teaching when I was in college.
I have worked with students as young as three and adults of all ages. I am a multi-instrumentalist so I have had a variety of students. Most recently I find great joy and helping singers and public speakers find their voice. I also work with a lot of song writing students and adult beginners.
Playing Treefort after not playing gigs for almost a year after Covid! Amazing moment ✨
Finding the right mentor can make a huge difference. Find someone who you feel comfortable around and inspired by!
I feel it is important to have a plan and think about your personal goals before choosing a teacher. Music is so expansive and it helps to have a plan so your teacher can help direct you towards your goal.
