Hi 🙂 I’m Sarah and I’m a fourth year Molecular and Cell Biology major and Music minor. This will be my 6th semester as a private piano tutor and I’m so excited to see what it will bring despite the craziness of the world right now. TMC has been a huge part of my college experience, and I’m so grateful to have met all the amazing tutors and students that make the program what it is. Besides music, I like caffeinating and rock climbing (even though I am really bad at rock climbing).

Hi I’m Katherine! I’m a sophomore intending to major in Molecular and Cell Biology and Data Science. I joined TMC last semester as a private tutor for cello. When I was in kindergarten, I started learning cello just because I wanted to play a bigger instrument than my brother, but I’ve been loving it ever since. I’m thankful for the super friendly TMC community and the opportunity to serve others through music. In my free time, I love cooking and making bread, painting shoes, and swimming.

I love working with kids and teaching them music, which has been a crucial part of my life! So if anyone enjoys music and loves interacting with children, you should join our community.

Andrew Ramirez

Events Director

Hello, I’m Andrew! I am a third year and a double major in Integrative Biology and Music. I am the co-events director and this is my 5th semester in TMC teaching piano. I have been learning piano and violin since I was a similar age as the students in TMC, and from my experience, exploring music collaboratively is one of the best ways to engage in musical learning. If not studying or rehearsing, you can catch me playing tennis, hiking, painting, or rock collecting!
