Susan Baker, Mill Valley
Tara is not only an accomplished musician and artist, but a talented and intuitive teacher. Her passion for music and the standards of excellence that she holds herself to serve as a model and inspiration for her students.
Our son had been playing the piano for 5 years when he started taking lessons from Tara. His enthusiasm for playing increased dramatically from the very first session and, more importantly, he began to synthesize what he had been taught and play at a much higher level. Tara has helped him tap into all of his senses in order to hear and feel the music naturally in addition to sight reading.
Our son looks forward to his weekly sessions with Tara and challenges himself to master the assignments that she gives him. She continually sets a high bar for him and he is motivated to meet it. Her personality and enthusiasm enable her to connect with students in a unique way. If you want your child to love what they are doing while performing at a high level, Tara is the best teacher there is!
