Reviews about Tara:
My son loves learning the ukulele with Tara. He has learnt to play a wide repertoire of pieces including tunes by Ed Sheeran, Adele and Clean Bandit, through to traditional carols and folk songs. Tara is now helping him to work towards his grade 3 exam. What an exciting few years it has been!
Tara is a great piano teacher for young learners. She knows how to keep children motivated and make everything simple and fun! The method she used with our 4 year-old son Aaron was absolutely fantastic! "Thank you" for all your hard work, creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning and creating such a positive experience for Aaron!
