About Tammy

Teaching Philosophy 

My goal is to enable students to find freedom and enjoyment in singing and music, while gaining a deeper understanding of their singing voice and themselves as learners. I draw on a variety of vocal techniques as well as voice science to provide a path for your practice. Every student is different, and through a joint effort we will discover the exercises, practice strategies and pace that is right for you. It’s a fascinating road which I hope you’ll enjoy!

Teaching Experience

In the past fifteen years I have been teaching private voice lessons to students of all levels and ages. Aside from my work at the New York Jazz Academy and Peridance, I maintain a private studio in Brooklyn, NY where I work with a diverse group of students, some complete beginners and some advanced, all of them with different goals and a variety of interests. My students include actors, musicians, professional singers, teens and adults.

I am a vocologist trained by the National Center for Voice and Speech (NCVS), and a member of the Pan American Vocology Association (PAVA).

As a Performer

Aside from teaching, I am also an active vocalist with various performance and recording activities. My experience as a performer often helps me prepare students for “real life” as a musician- what to expect on stage, how to maintain your vocal health, how to prepare for auditions and how to take care of the business side of music.
