About: Tammy Rodriguez
Why do you teach? I am passionate about teaching music, especially when it comes to training the whole musician. This is why I love teaching the recorder and teaching voice. The recorder is a wonderful and rich instrument to reinforce skills in sight reading and music theory. I’ve been playing the recorder for 6 years. The recorder is wonderful for teaching music theory and preparing students for ensemble work. I am also classically trained on the voice and have sung in various genres: classical, gospel, and Broadway, to name a few.
