Sara was very thorough and fostered a comfortable environment for my 9 year old daughter. The first lesson was wonderful and we're excited to continue next week. :-)

Two lessons in and I've already seen a dramatic change in quality. I've been with vocal coaches who seem to change their teaching styles almost every other week, and that can be detrimental to any student. I can tell Sara is confident in her abilities and techniques, and I recommend her to any singer, beginner or veteran.

Robert N.

West Columbia, SC

About Robert

As a lover of a broad range of styles of music and a guitar player since I was fourteen, I’ve developed an intense desire to share my knowledge with others. I started teaching friends formally in coll
ege and began professionally after graduating college. My approach is to get the student to learn guitar through the music that they love. I learn what music they like and then craft lesson plans using that information. With this approach, I can inject aspects of music that may sometimes seem more sterile into lessons without the student becoming overwhelmed. It’s important to me that students have fun and enjoy playing their instrument so that they don’t become turned off to the process of learning.

Regina M.

Columbia, SC

About Regina

Hello! My name is Regina and I am passionate about teaching music!
I have been teaching private lessons since 2012 and love helping my students grow in ability and confidence! I went to the Universi
ty of South Carolina and earned a Bachelors in Music Education, where I majored in piano and minored in trumpet. I also have earned a Masters in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) from Columbia International University (in conjunction with USC).
I believe that each student is unique and should be treated as such, both in the setting of achievable goals and the speed at which information is learned. No two student is the same, but each is a musician in his or her own right!
I look forward to helping you reach your music learning goals!
