Overview

Hello fellow singers! My goal is to help you refine your own unique instrument and help you to express a story and art through the voice!

I grew up taking piano lessons and singing in my church and school choir. I always had a love for all classical music and soon enough fell in love with opera! I begin taking classical voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon realized that my heart and soul belonged to opera and had to continue my studies a lot more in depth.

I went to the University of California of Los Angeles where I received my Bachelor of Arts with my emphasis in Opera Performance. Throughout the years spent at UCLA, I not only continued to sing with choral groups, but also performed in every opera. I sang one of the principles roles in Ravel's L'enfant et les sortilèges, and sang one of the principles roles in many opera scenes such as Dorabella from Così fan tutte, Mercedes in Carmen, Second Lady in The Magic Flute, Nerone in L'incorazione di Poppea.

Since I graduated college I sang the role of Rebecca Nurse in The Crucible with the Miami Music Festival. Besides opera, I compete in vocal competitions and sing in professional choirs in San Diego and Los Angeles.

As a teacher my job is to help my students learn to sing with as much ease as possible, while refining the instrument for the classical repertoire. I not only focus on technique, but also diction and artistry, because as singers we are story tellers.

Sarabeth really knows her stuff. Down to the specific mechanics of the voice, she was able to provide vocal exercises to help me reach my goals. Now I can properly work on extending my range on my own time.

She also helped me identify some problems with my breathing that I wasn't even aware of. Not only does she know a lot about classical voice technique, but she knows how to apply those principles to the male voice.

Definitely would recommend!

It is an absolute joy to taking lessons from Ms. Belon! Her knowledge of the breath and support is extensive and she teaches how to incorporate technique into musical expression. All the while being so nice and caring! All she wants is for you to be your best. Love her and highly recommend taking lessons with her!

Sarabeth is very kind and patient. As someone with stage fright, she has really helped not only help me understand a healthy technique, but how to not lose everything I've learned when I get up on stage.
I recommended her to my friend and now we both have been getting compliments from our director ;)
