My specialty helping students find their voice through their music. I teach the songs that they are listening to, the music they adore. Most of my students like to divide lesson time between working on singing, playing, and songwriting. I help students set their own goals, and design a curriculum that can take them from beginners to on-stage performance. I am here for you to show you the steps to achieve your dreams.

“I’m so grateful for everything Tai taught me that helped turn this dream into a reality.” — Asta Wylie (student and winner of IMTA Songwriter of the Year) 

Online lessons are taught using Zoom. In the first session, you will begin by setting personal goals. These are kept online and all class work is geared around them. Tai will then share a personalized Dropbox folder with all the materials you need, such as PDFs, recordings, and videos. Tai can include your lesson video as well for later review. Your homework never gets lost, you always know what you're working on, and what you need to do! 

"Each lesson is filled with focus, learning, and fun regardless of my understanding of a topic or song. Furthermore, Tai has allowed me to explore songs of my own choice and challenged me in ways I didn’t know possible. From 8 to 18, it’s been a whirlwind of fun!” — Seina Kitch (former student)

Working with Tai was incredible. She helped me grow in my songwriting and guitar playing abilities”

— Hali Erickson
