Tamara Slack Instructor At Talents Group
4825 S Quaker Avenue, Tulsa, OK, 74105
Tammy Slack is a voice teacher, beginning piano teacher and a vocal performance coach specializing in helping students develop solid and dynamic technique, a maximized range, and a large and flexible repertoire. Tammy spent most of her early life singing, dancing, and performing in theatre. Some favorite credits include Lady Katherine in the operetta The Vagabond King, Claudia in Brownstone, Maria in West Side Story, Tuptim in The King and I, and a fun summer as Laurey in Oklahoma! at the Edinburgh Theatre Festival in Scotland. She has performed in theme parks, Las Vegas, traveled with a regional rock band at age 14, and is a two time first runner-up to Miss Oklahoma as well as an accomplished vocal coach. She acted as Music Director for the first two Theatre Tulsa Broadway Bootcamps – Once On This Island and Children’s Letters to God; she has musical directed The Emperor’s New Clothes, Wind In the Willows, and the TATE Award winning Secret in the Wings and Spongebob at Clark. Tammy loves working with children, and is constantly inspired by the creativity and talent of Tulsa’s youth, and the inclusiveness of Tulsa’s theatre community. Since marrying Jim (28 years, people!), she has divided her time between leading worship, an occasional vocal arrangement consult (including a Miss America), managing their investment firm and insurance agency, and graduating their three amazing kids, Parker, Preston and Madeline from their homeschool. As President of Clark Council in 2014 when the City of Tulsa moved to cut funding for Clark Theatre, Tammy worked behind the scenes (down a path paved by our Clarkies, parents and grandparents) along with many volunteers to preserve Clark as a new non-profit Corporation, Clark Youth Theatre. She then served as Clark’s Board President from July 2015 to September 2018 writing grants and aiding staff, and bringing The Penguin Project to Clark Youth Theatre. She transitioned into the Executive Director position in September of 2018. This was a natural merging of her theatre experience and business management experience.
