Singing · In studio
Alex is not only fantastic at helping someone find the perfect rep for an audition/cabaret/book/etc., he's equally fantastic at helping you craft each song to be something more than just a standard piece. His overall knowledge of music theater and the anthology of music therein is top notch.
Alex is also a great person to turn to when you find yourself stuck in the same old habits. If something is feeling stale or you aren't sure why it isn't working, Alex's keen eye for actor crutches or cheats helps you break away from the same old traps and discover something new in every piece.
Truly a wonderful person to turn to when you're looking to turn your rep upside down!!

Last Minute Save

I needed a specific song for a last minute audition. For 15 minutes before the audition Alex played it for me and offered some ideas and different choices I could make. Not only did it help me connect with the piece but it also helped me vocally. The following day I went to an audition and booked the job with just one fifteen minute session.

I think what is most important to me, especially as a dancer, is that he provides a very comfortable environment where I'm not afraid to explore or try new things. He is also able to break it down into terms and ideas that are easy for me to understand and apply.

About Sarah

Since graduating in 2003 from The Juilliard School with a BFA in Drama, I've worked steadily as a professional actress, musician, teacher, and writer, based out of both New York City and Los Angeles. In May of this year, I relocated to Dallas, Texas to be near family, and am excited by the potential of the impressive local arts scene here.

I love teaching and consider each student a gift. Taking part in minds opening and skills developing; discovering how to connect with each individual; the moment when a student's eyes light up and say "Ohhh.. I get it... its like/when..." - these are remarkable experiences to share.

Okay, to be specific about what working with me looks like! Lessons will emphasize:
1. open, honest communication
2. curiosity
3. defining ...

I have nothing but good things to say about Sarah. I've been going to Sarah for singing lessons for a few months now and in each session I have been challenged and I have also had fun. I have gained so much confidence and I have heard significant improvement in my voice. Sarah is relaxed, well informed, exceptionally trained, and very encouraging. She made it a priority to understand what my goals were as a singer and how to best teach me so that I could reach them. Taking lessons with Sarah has been a great experience for me. She's awesome!

I've been taking singing lessons from Sarah for a while now. She graduated from Juilliard in Acting, voice and singing which were obviously a major part of her studies. She's a wonderful teacher. Not only does she know her stuff (the last singing teacher I had - his idea of teaching was "sing like me"), but, from my experience, she really gets to know her students - their strengths/areas to work on, goals, learning style - and gives lessons that directly address such. I especially liked learning the physical warm-ups (stretches) that's most helpful prior to performing. Thanks, Sarah!

Audition Prep · In home
Sarah coached me on countless auditions for professional theatre, television and film jobs in New York City. Her firsthand knowledge of the industry combined with her insight into voice, speech and text analysis always left me feeling confident and prepared. She is a wonderful teacher. I can't recommend her enough. If you're a beginner or a seasoned veteran, Sarah offers an expertise that will be beneficial to you. And because of her caring and gentle approach, working with her inspires confidence and is just plain fun.
