Because my daughter had difficulty with reading in school, her reading Comprehension was not good, so we found Sara to be my daughter’s reading teacher after school. We made a reading plan for my daughter with Sara together , Sara is very patient and understanding. My daughter said she is very nice and funny in the class, and she likes Sara very much! After Sara taught my daughter reading, my daughter’s reading grade became A in school ! Sara, thanks so much for your teaching!

While I now primarily sing classical repertoire, my roots are in Musical Theater. My passion for singing grew from a love of Broadway and I have many years of experience performing in and assisting with musicals. My goal is for all of my singers to have a foundation of healthy vocal technique, which I build from my knowledge of classical voice. This allows for a deeper understanding of how the voice functions and leads to an overall stronger sound.

Having been a dancer my whole life, with 10+ years of intensive training, many featured dancer roles, and serving as the Dance Captain for musicals, I am well equipped to help my students with this aspect of Musical Theater. With high level training in acting and straight theater, I provide my students with tools for perfecting monologues, lines, character development, and interpretation.

Whether you would like to work on singing, dancing, acting or all three, I am happy to help. I would love to help you discover more about Musical ...

"Great teacher!

My daughter, now age 7, has been taking piano lessons with Jenny for 9 months now. She is progressing quickly. Jenny is patient with her, even when my daughter is not interested and squirming around in her seat. She has given her a broad amount of knowledge, both theory and practical, and my daughter flourishes (when she wants to)! Jenny has tried to make it more fun for my daughter to keep her interest by creating easy versions of songs that my daughter will enjoy playing and singing. This has made a world of difference to my daughter. Even though my daughter dislikes practicing, I can see that she is progressing and enjoys playing when she learns how to properly play a song."

"As an older student who has always wanted to play guitar, but didn't know where to start, discovering Linda has made that transition very seamless, and welcoming. Linda has great patience for students of all ages, and can relate to our different learning styles, all the while presenting material in a way that is easy to understand, and with clear goals in the curriculum to help me stay on track. Linda has an amazing ability to teach, and can demonstrate the necessary fine motor skills I am continually learning. I look forward to my lessons every week!"

What is a Piano Fake Book?

You walk into your sheet music store and start browsing. You look at the method books, technique books, repertoire… and then your eyes see something else. You pick it up and see it is called a "fake book." An odd name for a real book. You open it up and see that it contains music. So what exactly is it? A piano fake book allows you to read and play music on your piano. But unlike your typical books, which contain the score as written by the composer or arranger, a fake book is more of a …

How to Sing with a "Raspy Voice" Without Hurting Your Voice

Listen, I love me a good, “gritty” rasp as much as the next person but, there is a time and a place. (Lookin’ at you, Chris Stapleton.) Yes, I said it, a vocal coach who likes to hear the enemy of healthy singing, or raspiness, every once in a while. It’s a great way to evoke emotion not just in your song but to the listener’s ear. They hear that rasp and affiliate it with passion, grit, pain, and so on! However, there is a right way and wrong way to approach raspy singing. Whe …
