Hello! My name is Tammi! I've been playing the violin for 12 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Biology, and I am passionate about education. I'm a tutor by nature! I can teach any student age 5 yrs and up. The student must have their own instrument to use during the lesson. I'll drive to you! I'm very flexible with my schedule, and I tailor the lesson to the student's individual goals. I can help with music reading skills, tuning and pitch accuracy, and proper form and technique. I can help the student prepare a piece of music for a recital or group performance. I played in school orchestras until I was older and could afford my own private lessons, so I understand the downfalls of large-group music education, and how to compensate and re-educate. Private time with a tutor is absolutely indespensable in reaching one's full musical potential. I charge $25 for a half hour session and $45 for an hour.
I am great at motivating young students to find a passion for their violin! Escaping into music with an instrument is a productive way to cope with stress and a great way to build self-esteem. Playing a musical instrument engages almost all areas of the brain at once. Science has shown that musicians develop larger and more active corpus callosums than non-musicians, which allows for faster processing and transfer of information between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Musicians have quicker and more accurate memories as well! Music and reading are the two staples of a strong mind, and access to education is the staple of a strong community. Let me help you improve! Send me a text or give me a call at (801) 702-7806 and we can set up your lessons!
