Working with beginners, intermediate singers and established professionals, Tamara has maintained private voice studios in the United States and Europe. She has held Adjunct Teaching positions at North Central College and Music Tech in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In her 18-year of extensive vocal training and mentorship from noted international vocal pedagogue David Jones, Tamara has developed important teaching skills necessary to remedy various vocal issues, by employing concepts from the Swedish-Italian school of singing.
These concepts are geared toward developing freedom and balance of voices of any age, genre or musical style. Tamara is passionate in helping singers discover vocal freedom in a fun, positive and nurturing environment.
Your Private Lesson will focus on technical issues such as register balance, releasing tension, breathing, range building, body posture, and applying proper vocal technique to repertoire.

This workshop is a singer's MUST! Learning how to warm up the voice will reduce your risk of vocal damage and help you establish a daily warm-up routine. There will be a short lecture on the concepts of warming the voice, including what exercises to choose and why. Then we will go through a series of exercises which you can apply to your personalized warm-up routine. We'll also deal with warming down the voice, after heavy performances. This 90-minute workshop will be held on ZOOM. Register in advance. 24-hour cancellation policy applies.
Tamara will demonstrate the principles of the Swedish-Italian vocal method at work in various voice types and musical genres. The Master Class will center around the vocal work done with each singer. Tamara will give various practical exercises that immediately balance the production of sound. Afterwards, each singer is guided to incorporate the principles in repertoire of their choice.
This master class is beneficial to singers as well as teachers looking to enhance their teaching methods. Tamara will personally select singers for her Master Class. Active Participants will receive approximately 30 minutes of vocal instruction. There will be a short Q&A session at the end of the class.
