"Tamara's teaching and coaching are precise, enlightening, encouraging, and most importantly enjoyable! Tamara's singing lessons are excellent!"
"Tamara is a fabulously fun teacher who knows just how to bring out the best in your singing and in your voice. She is kind and patient and creates a safe environment in which you can grow!"
"I've taken quite a number of Tamara's workshops. She is awesome at creating a safe, friendly, and most of all fun atmosphere for you to grow as a musician regardless of your current level"
"Tamara has been key to encouraging me to find more joy and self-confidence in my singing. From weekend soloist workshops to vocal lessons and lately, to blues workshops, she takes on the uphill task of pushing me out of my comfort zone and surprising myself. She enthusiastically supported my taking a week-long workshop with the great Dee Daniels, an experience I'll never forget, or regret. I'm very grateful for her skills and support. Not to mention she is a gifted singer in her own right."
“I am in my late 50”s and about 2 years ago started singing lessons with Tamara. Since I have been a little girl, I have wanted to sing; and Tamara has given me the confidence to accomplish this. She is an amazing teacher who is kind, patient, and always there when I have some challenges. My voice has improved drastically and I owe it all to Tamara’s amazing teaching techniques. I can now hold a tune when I sing in my choir and the next goal of my 5-year plan is to sing solo in Concert. Dreams do come true.
Thank you Tamara for your friendship and support.” Blessings and Hugs Cindy
"I really enjoy working with Tamara. She is a great coach, sharing suggestions about vocal styles, breathing, and practicing. She helped me take the fear out of performing and realize practical approaches for refining the songs I love to sing."
"My first group session with Tamara was a very scary event. The song I chose, which I had been comfortably humming along to for quite a while, was a real challenge for me when it came to actually sing it. Tamara very gently & skillfully helped me relax, break the song down into manageable pieces, and then put it back together. The 5-week group format was a great learning experience. Everyone is so supportive and Tamara's instruction to myself as well as each group member was priceless. I have attended three group sessions and highly recommend the events. " Tamara, "I think about my time at your workshop often. You gave me the confidence and the tools and support I needed to pursue my passion. I went on to sing in an awesome rock band and now do acoustic gigs once in a blue moon. I owe a lot of that to you. I remember I wanted to cancel last minute because I was so nervous to go to your workshop. I remember you wouldn't let me make excuses about song choice so I had to show up. One of the best things I ever did for myself, seriously."
"What a LADY!!! I am so impressed with your skills and talents. Not only that you possess these skills but how you are able to help me to get a better singer (without an accent!!). The tips and tricks work and it is an amazing journey to work with you. I am enjoying every minute of your company .... it is so much fun. Thank you, Tamara."
"I have attended two vocal workshops with Tamara both have been excellent, Tamara is a very knowledgeable, supportive teacher and she also has a good sense of humour, which makes the workshops fun to attend. I will definitely be doing another workshop in the near future."
"The Blues workshop was fabulous. Tamara knows how to inspire and make me confident as I explore music."
"I really enjoy the relaxed, and supportive learning environment. Tamara provides a comfortable space to acknowledge, accept, and develop your natural voice. It's a wonderful freeing experience! I highly recommend Tamara's workshops!
"Tamara Lea’s voice training workshops are great for singers of all ages and styles. Tamara is a skillful teacher who makes each workshop not only a valuable and enjoyable lesson in how to sing but also a lesson in how to work together as a group.” Alan "Tamara's classes are fun and informal, relaxed yet focused, full of insight, direction, creativity, and laughs. Two happy thumbs up!"

"I have been one of Tamara's students for going on three years. She is very kind and patient even when you are not understanding something she explains it again. Tamara is never hard on her students but always sees the best in you. She has helped me find my love of music. Although Tamara specializes in jazz she was happy to teach me many classical songs that were to my liking. Tamara really takes a personal interest in you so that she feels like a friend, not just an instructor."
"As a parent what I noticed most is how Tamara is in tune with her student. She helps her student find music that interests them and incorporates it into the lessons. It is a joy for parents to see their child practice because they are fully engaged in the music!"
