Overview

Hi! My name is Sara. My studio began in 2000, teaching one violin student. I took a break and went to college to earn my A.A. in Music and my Piano Performance Certificate from Riverside Community College in California. I graduated Great Distinction and was on the Dean's list. I received many piano and academic scholarships. While in college I started my studio in Riverside California teaching Piano to an autistic child. I taught him 3 times a week and made exceptional progress. I enjoyed it so much I started teaching full time in 2008 teaching piano, harp, violin, voice, guitar, flute and clarinet. Soon I had 50 students and created a 501 (c) (3) non-profit music school. My students and I perform for the public, including nursing homes. The performances are important for the students progress as well as the Piano Guild where students are adjudicated by judges in a non competitive environment. Moving back to my hometown, I am excited to meet new students!

Sara has been great. She is committed to my 11 yr old daughter's lessons and has been articulate in lesson presentation as well as effective in dialing in the right program for her. She is always on time for online lessons, and stays engaged until the end. Sara has even given lessons as late as 11PM her time to accommodate our west coast schedule. We just signed up for more lessons! Yay!

This was my first lesson with Sara and I already learned things I never heard about before. I am an adult student that has not picked up a clarinet in years!!! If I had Sara for a teacher I would of did this years ago:)) I immediately felt connected to her and she is very encouraging. Looking forward to my next lesson. Thank you:-)

Not only is Sara very musically adept, but like a true professional, she is very patient with me. I am one of Sara's older students, so her patience is greatly appreciated. Though this was my first time speaking to Sara via Skype, I felt like I've known Sara for years; she made me feel very comfortable. I can truly say that this professional relationship is undoubtedly one that was made in music heaven. I look forward to our next lesson!

It was only my first lesson, but I thought the material was very well paced and Sara gave me a lot of technical detail, which is what I like. Looking forward to my next lesson!
