I have been a private and group voice instructor for students of all ages over twelve years. I am also a director of musical theater and drama instructor. As a performer, I have experience in a wide variety of genres including performances in operas, musicals, choirs, gospel groups, and as a worship leader and concert soloist. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education and Vocal Performance and earned her Masters of Music in Vocal Arts from the University of Southern California. 

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect that lessons will be fun and light but challenging. I believe in being a diverse performer and encourage students to study a variety of genres. I want students to study music that they enjoy and possibly find other kinds of music they didn't know they would enjoy. I believe that with hard work and a lot of encouragement students can grow in amazing ways. Whether working toward a career in music, special auditions or just singing as a hobby I seek to help students find the joy of singing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Seating for parents, keyboard, down stairs office

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard that I can bring to lessons if students do not have a piano.

*** Specialties ***
Musical Theater, Pop, Contemporary Christian, Classical

Amazing voice coach!

Sara has really helped me with my range within 3 weeks time--I have noticed a lot of improvement. I like her positive attitude & how she opens my mind to other genres of music. After not taking lessons since I was a teenager, she has built up my confidence. Thank you, Sara!

Sara is wonderful!

I haven't been training in singing for 6 years, when I found Sara she has helped me gain my confidence in signing and make my voice go places I never thought possible. Sara is encouraging, passionate and fun! It's really fun for me as a college student to gain knowledge and training from Sara, she really gets it. I love that we both share a faith in the Lord, and am so blessed she is helping use my gifts from the Lord. She is wonderful! Take her, you won't regret it :D
