Greetings! I'm an enthusiastic teacher who makes learning fun, as evidenced by the fact that most of my students stay for years! I have taught over 150 students from six school districts in the South and West Hills of Pittsburgh, along with students from Bishop Canevin, OLSH, and CAPA.
I build on a solid foundation of good technique to help you achieve your vocal goals. I work to instill a love of music and provide compassion for the whole person, while working to bring out the very best that your voice can be!
I offer the study of musical theory as an option for interested students. Music theory is highly recommended for any student who wishes to major in music, or music-related fields of study, such as music therapy.
I have a varied background, musically speaking. I started in community theater at age 12, and entered college with one of my majors being Theater. I switched to Vocal Performance and studied opera with Claudia Pinza.
I have always used my music in my church. For most of my adult life, this has meant a contemporary Christian music setting, being a worship leader for our church's worship team, directing and fronting a full band. I can help to develop you as an effective worship leader, in addition to being a solid worship vocalist.
My former students include professional actors, opera students, and a Best Actor and Best Actress award winner at the Gene Kelly Awards for High School Musical Theater.
And parents, you can rest easier, knowing that I have my PA Background Clearances. I teach in my in-home studio. The studio has glass doors, so your student is always visible. Parents may sit in on any lesson; they're also welcome to wait in my living room, right outside the studio room. My home is conveniently located 10 minutes from Waterdam Plaza on Route 19, in McMurray, PA.
Sally is a truly amazing teacher. I took lessons from her throughout high school so that I could improve my singing in the school musicals. Sally's instruction is very practical, healthy, and effective. I'm so much happier with my voice now than when I started lessons. Aside from her teaching, Sally is just an amazing person. She quickly becomes friends with all of her students and is great at coaching voices of any age level. If you take lessons from Sally, you're going to make a great friend and you're going to love the singing results!+ Read More
I took lessons from Sally for 6 years and have absolutely no regrets. Over the 6 years, we tackled a variety of musical styles and she was able to help me through each one incredibly. From learning how to sing healthily to furthing my vocal capabilities, Sally made it a wonderful and fun experience. I couldn’t be more thankful for the time I spent in her studio and would recommend her to anyone who wants to reach new levels in the vocal world.+ Read More
