Tara is an extraordinary teacher and musician. She is warm and nurturing with our three young children, but also extremely effective — in less than a year, they can read music, perform on stage, and even play songs with some expression! Tara keeps them motivated and on task, while still keeping lessons fun. Tara is always professional and is an excellent communicator. We highly recommend The Cascade Method!

-Carrie Beard

Tara is an amazing teacher. She makes learning piano fun, and totally understands how to adapt to each of my son’s unique style and learning preferences. She keeps them always interested. She sparked their love for piano five years ago and kept the flame growing ever since.

-Lara Nuer

I feel that Tara’s method of teaching is very different which makes the activity exciting. Unlike most dull, old teachers, Tara is a young, insightful person. I have a lot of fun during her classes. She made my negative feelings towards playing the piano become nothing but positive thoughts. Five stars!
