Tara holds a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance from UMD.  Although young, Tara has had many international music experiences with choirs.  She started singing when she was five and her love for music and the stage has only grown.  Her passion for voice teaching is only second to that of being on stage, she enjoys teaching young and old students and delights in the classification of voices something she hopes to pursue in her future doctoral degree.  Tara is a new resident to the Twin Cities, previously a resident of Duluth, Decorah, IA, and Omaha, NE, all of which have aided in her musical journey. She entitled her graduate recital “A Journey to Joy,” music and spreading the joy of music have become a distinct passion of Tara’s and she looks forward to the day when her full time job can be in music instead of feeding her coffee addiction at Starbucks.
