I'm Tamahra Elizabeth Martin Pratt, Tamahra Martin for short, the female pictured with a group I play in, The Umatilla Flats, from Port Townsend, WA. I live part time there, part time on Camano Island.

What instrument(s) do you play? (include voice if you sing!)

I play drums and sing. Drumming for 19 years. Singing,just beginning seriously.

What styles of music do you like to play/sing? (i.e., standards, blues, modal, bebop, free jazz, etc.)

So far just playing standards, Dixieland and blues, would like to explore more. Have jammed on fusion & acid jazz in the past.

What formats do you want to play/sing in? (duo, trio, quartet, quintet, stageband, drop-in jam, hosted jam in public, etc.)

Any of the above.

How much theory can you apply in your playing/singing? (i.e., reharmonization, cycle of fifths, jazz scales/modes, etc.)

Have a beginners understanding of theory. Am learning it inductively through necesary application!

Do you read music or play by ear only? What kind of music do you read? (i.e., lead sheets/Real Books, written-out, etc.)

Mostly by ear. Am learning to read written music. Learn vocals from written music, and keyboard. Am a slow reader, but can memorize parts from charts.
