Singer | Composer | Voice & Piano Instructor |
Creator of Music Maker Soul Shaker: Kids Music & Yoga Program for Self-Regulation
Tara is a New York City, USA based singer, composer, vocal & piano instructor as well as the creator of the Music Maker Soul Shaker: Kids Music & Yoga Program for Self-Regulation.
A native of Syracuse, NY, USA, Tara took to the stage at a young age as singer and actor. Her love of story-telling evolved over the years into becoming a professional singer working across the globe with various talent agencies, incredible world-class musicians and bands of many genres.
Settling in New York City, USA in 2013 after traveling the world singing, Tara opened Tara Lawton Voice Studio to share her love of music with others. She is passionate about the fact that music is a skill like any other that can be developed & honed and is not only for those born with natural talent. With hard work and persistence, Tara knows any skills can be obtained, mountains overturned.
In 2019, Tara became a 200-hour certified yoga instructor after discovering yoga as a magical means to healing and growth particularly when combined with the intrinsic healing powers of music. In 2020, she developed the curriculum for what would become Music Maker Soul Shaker: Kids Music & Yoga Program for Self-Regulation. After discovering the emotional regulation properties of these two modalities, it became a necessity to share this incredible information with everyone who would listen. Tara imagines a better, more compassionate world especially if we give children the tools they need to support themselves at a young age.
During the uncertainties of the 2020 pandemic Tara began a new journey: Composition for Hire. Tara has created music for Podcasts, Audio Books and other listening experiences. A music-creator for life, Tara greatly enjoys sharing in another's vision and assisting in actualizing that vision through the creation of custom music compositions.
If anything is certain in life, it's only that life is uncertain...especially as a musician in today's world! Tara does her best to enjoy every minute of the journey whether easy and difficult. She hopes that if she does anything with her time on this planet, it is to bring joy to others through the beauty music (and yoga) offer us. Won't you come along for the ride?
