Tammy was one of my headliner at my corporate Asian Pacific American Heritage celebration virtual event. She was actually in Singapore because of Covid-19 but was still responsive in communication. She did some mash-up of contemporary songs as well as talked about the significance in relation to Asian culture. She plays the piano and guitar while performing and her voice is beautiful. Thank you! I would recommend her without hesitation.
Tammy worked with us at a fun tiki corporate product launch month and was excellent! She understood and elevated the vibe beautifully and on top was super flexible and accommodating to work with throughout the planning process.
Highly recommend & looking forward to working with her again on future events!

Ms Tammy recently entertained us for a 2nd birthday party in our apartment. She was absolutely lovely and was wonderful in engaging all the guests. We requested ukelele but she came equipped with lots of toys and prompts. Many of the guests ended up asking for her information. Such a great experience!
She was on time and gave a very clear breakdown of the expected services and what was required. Kids loved her and she was super engaging and adjusted to their energy, and even took song requests. Highly recommend.
Tammy gave the kids an amazing music class at our daughter's birthday party. She arrived early with plenty of time to get prepared. Thorough out the class the children were very engaged even when there is a playground right next to us. The curriculum was well thought-out and fun. They danced, sang, played music games and instruments, leaned a little music reading. It was a blast. My daughter said it was the best part of the party, even better than the chocolate birthday cake.
