Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"To me, when a person's a stranger they should act a little
me: "do I make sense?"
my student: "sometimes."
Hi there! Thanks for visiting. My name is Tammy, and I'm a
vocalist/ composer & voice teacher living in Brooklyn. I live
with two roommates, grind my own coffee beans, have developed a
craving for green things ("oooh!!! A tree!!!" or: "ooooh!!!
Avocado!"), cook sometimes, forget to eat sometimes, eat junk food
sometimes. I'm balanced- sometimes. Get bored of it sometimes.
Fantasize about getting a dog most of the time. Lately I'm catching
myself staring at people's dogs, and sometimes I make an audible
"aww" when they pass by. Really awkward. You learn a lot about
what's socially acceptable this way.
I'm a true freelancer, with all the schedule funkiness, job
insecurity and freedom and fun in it. I question the legitimacy my
existence every Tuesday and Friday. I also teach a bunch of
absolutely lovely human beings how to sing. Sometimes it feels like
magic. Think about it: someone can't do something, then suddenly
they can. So cool.
I tend to get along better with artistic/ semi artistic types. Or
nerds. Or artsy nerds.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Sing, improvise, teach, hang out, discover new places, return to
old places, go to A LOT of live shows, order the exact same thing
every time I go to a restaurant I've been to before, trying not to
do that, telling the truth, thinking about what's the truth, meet
people, take their contact info, lose their contact info, find
their contact info online anyways, send lots of emails, neglect
sending emails, spend way too much time on one email, procrastinate
on updating my website, update my website. Following people around
and doing whatever they do. Learning new words and repeating them a
lot. Like auspicious. auuuus piiiiciiiiiouuusss. auspicious. Vowels
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching people who can't sing at all how to sing.
I'm also pretty good with computers and website building stuff, at
least for someone who never learned it.
Here's a weird one: I can repeat what people say/ sing as their
saying/ singing it. Once I sang along through an entire song in
I'm also a pretty good skier, even though it's been a while. Kinda

Suns, Dr. Seuss, Weeds, 30 Rock, Phillip Glass, Bill Evans (You
Must Believe in Spring), Dave Holland, Chet Baker, feta cheese,
really good olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, chop them all and make a

Oh, and How I Met Your Mother. I actually don't even like it that
much, but I really want to know what happens in the end. Freakin 7
seasons. Like another job on the side.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My contacts/ glasses
A deep conversation once in a while
Acknowledging that everything is a little funny. Or very funny.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work. Emails I didn't send yet. How to be happier, know myself
better and connect to other people more. How to go visit home more
often. Where I'd like to be, and how to make it happen.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No such thing.
I should clarify: I'm not that hip, my schedule just changes a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I need an alarm clock to wake up at 9am. Or 10am.
OK, 12pm too sometimes.
