Singing is joy and my approach uses positive physical, psychological and emotional feedback to unlock the potential a free voice can realize. The exercises are clear and accessible and they lead to gains in power, clarity and range. After earning my teaching degree (in high school math of all things) I embarked on a 30-year career that took me all over the world. However, it was not until I discovered the work of W. Stephen Smith that I truly began to see the true possibilities of my voice. I want to give to students what I never had all those years - a reliable technique and a way to give voice to all the beauty of the music we want to share with the world.

Great teacher! My 3 yo daughter loved her music lesson with Sarah.
Patricia G.
Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

Opera is such a beautiful genre that I love to sing! As with any student you learn all vocal techniques. Attention to detail is what sets this genre apart so we explore challenging concepts and tools to really help your instrument reach it's fullest potential. We cannot stop at just a good vocal sound however, the full performance is explored from musical tools to acting through the song and staging/gestures.

"Talvez a maior dificuldade que exista para um aluno é ter uma referência real de sua voz. Referência que engloba aspectos técnicos vocais; musicais; cênicos como também aspectos de posturas, compromisso com a carreira e com cada trabalho proposto. Hombridade. Tive a oportunidade de assim de conhecer uma das minhas melhoras referências: Luiz-Ottavio Faria. Em todas as aulas que tive pude receber um conteúdo técnico refinado, embasado e experiente pois não se tratava somente da postura vocal, da técnica ali trabalhada ou de notas certas e sim um contexto completo do que você está cantando como também interpretando. Toda aula com ele é aula para ser um artista em todos os sentidos. Grato professor e amigo. Bravíssimo por sua carreira e por sua conduta de sempre."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
