Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

The lesson would have been better if I were not so nervous and played better.

Private Flute Teacher

Experienced flute teacher of 6.5 years, and professional flutist who has been playing for 17 years!
I teach dozens of middle school and high school students of all abilities, including many beginners.
My students are often advancing in the TMEA Middle School and High School Region band process, winning competitions, and making first chair or moving up bands once they start studying with me.
This is because of my passion for music, kindness and encouragement of all of my students, my patience, and the mastery of the instrument I'm teaching.
I have a Masters Degree in Flute Performance from one of the best music schools in the world, have been playing professionally all over the world for over 5 years, and have won numerous competitions and awards for my playing.

My students will master sight reading, sound, musicality, technique, auditions and nerves/mental strength as a musician, and always be at the top of their section with me by their side.

I've been teaching flute for 7 years and love seeing my students discover their own musicality and build their confidence through flute playing! I teach all levels, from beginning to advanced flutists, including kids*, teens, recreational music learners, adult beginners, and secondary instrument learners. I can also coach you through audition and performance preparation, with special focus on performance psychology, anxiety, body awareness, and unlocking your flow state!

(*If your child is under age 10 and has a strong interest in flute or other wind instruments, I also teach recorder for ages 8 and up! This is a great safe & affordable way to get a head start on wind instruments for smaller fingers without straining the body.)

We will emphasize healthy playing techniques, body alignment, and mindset from the beginning of your lesson journey. As a beginner, you’ll learn how to make a clear sound on the head joint, then transfer those skills onto the whole flute, adding your ...

Sarah is a kind and knowledgeable hoop instructor. I couldn’t hoop on my waist at all when I started taking lessons with her and now I am able to keep the hoop going indefinitely. And while working to improve my waist hooping I learned a variety of off-body tricks and combinations. Sarah is great at tailoring lessons to any skill level and focusing on your individual goals and limitations. She is also really friendly, approachable, and open to feedback. I would definitely recommend!
Caitlin
I have taken both in-person group classes and online group classes with Sarah. She always does a great job of catering to the students' levels and including some things everyone can do as well as some new things for everyone to learn!

Sarah is such a wonderful teacher with just the right balance of patience, sterness, and fun, perfect for my young child just learning to play.

I want to share my passion for music with each student.
