Piano, percussion, voice
Tiffany T. is a classically-trained pianist and percussionist, and a private instructor. She has studied piano throughout her entire life, starting at the age of 5 and also has extensive vocal experience. She was discovered by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Youth Percussion Program at the age of 8, where she began studying classical percussion (melodic and non-melodic).
She was trained by both the principal percussionists at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Lyric Opera until the age of 14. During her teenage years, she was the first chair percussionist in her high school band and symphony orchestra all four years of high school, and sang with a variety of jazz bands in Beijing, China.
Starting in high school, Tiffany began teaching piano and percussion to elementary and middle school children. Her passion in music teaching grew until college, where she taught part-time as a full-time student.
Until the age of 18, music dominated my life outside of school. Almost every day, I had piano lessons, symphony orchestra, band, musical theatre, percussion classes... you name it! I work well with kids because I have personal knowledge of what it feels like to be a kid and to learn music. I enjoy creating unique lessons based on a child's personality and skill set.

Too many to name! Some of her favorite cities are Marrakesh, Beijing, and Barcelona.
Tiffany hasn't yet worked with children with special needs but she is more than happy to do so.
Tiffany is an excellent teacher and musician. She is great with kids and brings a positive energy to every lesson!
My two daughters loved learning the drums with Tiffany. She was always patient and passionate about music.
