nice things people have said

links to people and organizations I've worked with or admire from afar

"Tara Khozein is a beautiful artist with not only a first rate voice but also with the ability to really communicate with her audience! The most important thing above all however is that she is a lovely human being with a sweet spirit that one sees right away! Brava Tara!"

- Jennifer Larmore, Mezzo-soprano



"I have been taking lessons from Tara for the past year. She an inspirational, challenging, and patient teacher. I always leave my lessons with her feeling excited to share my voice with the world."

- Apollo Garcia, Circus Artist



"At age 62, Tara Khozein taught me to sing. She did not say, 'You are too old. Go away.' She said, 'Great. Let's get started.'  And we did.  I sang in Italian, I sang in English, I sang with joy and deep satisfaction.  While I was with Tara, my life had bumps. Music and Tara carried me through it all. Armed with musical skills taught to me by my wonderful teacher, I joined a magnificent choir. The choir has become my strength and peace, all thanks to my lessons with Tara."

- Dr. Jane Nicholson, Psychologist and Choral Singer
