I received my bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the University of Redlands in 2011 (which I attended on a music talent scholarship), and am now an active performer in Los Angeles, CA. I have been tutoring and teaching privat
I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, and I could never live without it!
With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

Before I became an opera singer, I took classical piano lessons for many many years and throughout college we were required to take piano lessons.
Even though I am primarily a vocalist, I believe that it is very important that all voice teachers are able to play the piano, so that we may help our students sing correct rhythms, pitches, and accompany them with their vocal exercises.
As an intermediate pianist, I teach beginners of all ages! You are never too young or too old to play piano!
I grew up taking piano lessons and singing in my church and school choir. I always had a love for all classical music and soon enough fell in love with opera! I begin taking classical voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon realized that my heart and soul belonged to opera and had to continue my studies a lot more in depth.
I went to UCLA where I received my Bachelor of Arts with my emphasis in Opera Performance. Throughout the years spent at UCLA, I not only continued to sing with choral groups, but also performed in every opera. I sang one of the principles roles in Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges, and sang one of the principles roles in many opera scenes such as Dorabella from Così fan tutt
Since I graduated college I have collaborated with nationally known directors, conductors, and voice teachers such as Peter Kazaras, James Darrah, Bruce Stasyna, Juliana Gondek, and Enrique Toral. I have sang in Master Classes given by Susan Graham and Bradley Moore. I have performed roles with Astoria Music Festival, Miami Music Festival, Opera NEO, and San Diego Opera.
As a teacher my job is to use my knowledge and experience to help my students learn to sing with as much ease as possible, while refining the instrument for the classical repertoire. I not only focus on technique, but also diction and artistry, because as singers we are story tellers.

I would highly recommend Sarabeth to anyone looking for lessons.
· Classical Voice · In home
Sarabeth is a truly amazing voice teacher!!! She led me step by step through many vocal exercises and taught me many a great classical song! Her patience and encouragement were ever present at each lesson as I stumbled through the classical songs which were written in other languages.
I have SMA type 1-2, a severely debilitating and progressive disease, and my lung capacity was 24% of normal when Sarabeth started teaching me. Under her guidance, I was able to increase my lung capacity to 28%! Believe me when I say that this is not supposed to happen to people with SMA. In general our lung capacities continue to decrease as the disease progresses until we need to be placed under mechanical ventilation. The most common mode of death for people with SMA is respiratory failure.
I am deeply saddened that Sarabeth is moving away to Los Angeles and will no longer be able to be my singing teacher, but wishing her the best of luck there!!! I will always remember her as the incredibly wonderful teacher she is!

Piano is an amazing instrument and has so much power. Have you wanted to learn your favorite songs? The piano is an easy instrument to start learning those and the way I focus on learning music is by focusing on the songs you like to play and listen to.
We focus on ear training, theory, proper practice techniques. We will learn excersizes to help us play with both hands better.
I also am a Jazz musician, so we can talk about imrovisation and comping as well
My Saxophone students can expect some of the fun and some of the practical. We will be working on articulation, tone production, intonation, breathing, different forms of vibrato and many other aspects of control over the saxophone while learning songs that you as the student want to learn.
I have been taking piano lessons for 15 years, and turning around and teaching the techniques and abilities to my students have been really fun! We work on the fundamentals, but we
I have a lot of fun with music theory. I try to be practical in what students need to know, but can teach much more. I have a jazz background and can teach jazz theory, including comping and improvisation.

A basic understanding of piano is essential for every musician. As a multi-instrumentalist, my piano approach emphasizes how piano can improve your understanding of music theory and heighten your skills on all other instruments.
Starting violin at age 5, Antonia quickly developed a passion for music. Captivated by the raw power and tone of brass instruments, she traded in her violin for a trumpet at age 10.
When Antonia was only sixteen years old, she began performing professionally - fronting several local big bands as lead vocalist, as well as sitting in the trumpet section. Last summer, she was given the honor of playing at The Library of Congress with one of her big bands.
Antonia makes weekly appearances with local music groups ranging from jazz and funk music to rock, R&B, and rap. Antonia has a solo project of her original material under the name The Runtime. Her debut EP is in progress.

Hi! My name is Alena and I'm studying music at New York University. I've been taking piano lessons for over 5 years, and have also taken additional piano proficiency classes in my studies. I work best with younger kids, elementary-to-middle school aged. I have lots of experience working with children, and I would love the opportunity to help your child take their music to a new level!
Cindy is patient with students. She understands school takes a lot out of a student whose lessons are right after school. Patience and a little laughter helps students .
However, my students know I expect them to practice.
I've been teaching in Colorado Springs for 4 1/2 years. I have accompanied for groups and solos.
Students learn differently so I teach using different authors according to the students' need for learning.
Adults are different. They know what they want to play. Their lessons are a bit different. If they have had piano lessons as a child, I teach and coach them.
Piano lessons have been researched and found to improve cognitive thinking and for children have increased IQs.
First time I meet with a student, we visit there is no charge.
Ability to read is very important because reading out loud is an important part of my teaching and students learning.
I love to teach piano!!! I include some laughter as well.
I have worked most of my married life so teaching piano has not been doable. Since I retired, I have taught children, teens and adults. I have the most fun!!! !
I craft a unique blend of traditional, technical and modern instruction. I also encourage my students to compose, arrange and record their own music using composition and scoring software such as Musescore. I tailor their repertoire toward their own needs and tastes, while endeavoring to broaden their (and my!) exposure to all genre of piano literature. Above all, I am a firm believer that piano instruction should (no, MUST!) be fun, yet disciplined. I take an interest in all aspects of my student's lives, and endeavor as much as possible to connect personally with student and family.

By Wendy H. - Colorado Springs Piano Teacher
My name is Wendy. I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 30 years, and I’ve been teaching piano, voice, and guitar lessons here for much of that time. I also achieved my Bachelor’s degree in music and set up my own local music studio. If you're interested in taking piano lessons in Colorado Springs, here are a few tips to help you get started!
Participate in School Talent Shows and Music Competitions
As a piano teacher, I like to make sure that my students are grounded in the foundations of playing and reading music with proper technique. To help them achieve this, there are many music activities that I encourage my students to participate in while taking piano lessons. For example, many schools - from elementary to high school - offer talent shows and music competitions. I prepare my students for these activities by asking them which song they want to play. After they have learned the song well, we then stylize it with lots of expression and originality.
Additionally, junior and high schools compete in city-wide music competitions. The music or band teacher can set students up to be involved in these competitions, which are usually done in April or May.
Compete in the Annual El Paso County Fair
The El Paso County Fair has a yearly piano talent competition in the summer. If a student wins or places at the county level, this leads them to the State Fair competition in Pueblo, Co in August.
For my older students, I suggest they try playing gigs at coffee shops, restaurants, local bars and dance halls. They can play piano for church, their school or community choirs. I also encourage my students to play for weddings and special occasions.
I am a big proponent of exposing my students to all types of music, both during our lessons and as an extracurricular activity. In the summer, many local parks have free concerts with all types of music. You can go and listen to everything from big band to jazz, Christian to rock, and classical to hip hop. Many churches have free concerts, as well. By checking out some local websites or listening to local radio stations, you can find out about many free and interesting music activities.
Paul Ferrin hosts a hymn sing a couple of times a year at Radiant Church in Colorado Springs. He brings in some amazing piano players. It is spectacular to watch them play up and down the keyboard - truly inspiring. Churches in this area have some amazing piano players, especially some of the larger ones. This is also an excellent way to go and see some fantastic playing.
Additionally, local concert venues, such as the Air Force Academy and the Fine Arts Center, offer many different types of music for your entertainment. There are many popular bands that come here to play, and you can see everything from classical to Broadway, to country and pop rock. There is a lot of variety for this ever-growing and changing city.
