Tamara joined the Levine faculty in the winter of 2014.
“My favorite aspect of being a faculty member at Levine is the level of knowledge and dedication from the faculty, staff and students.”
Teaching Philosophy and Approach
“My teaching promotes positive singing through proper technique and education where I give each student the confidence and knowledge to perform through a healthy approach. I help them to enjoy the experience thus encouraging their continuance in vocal and musical endeavors. I customize my approach to adhere to each individual students’ ability and level.”
When not making music, Tamara enjoys spending time with her family, friends and dog named Alexis.
