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 UCLA 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 have collaborated with nationally known directors, conductors, and voice teachers such as Peter Kazaras, James Darrah, Bruce Stasyna, Juliana Gondek, and Enrique Toral. I have sang in Master Classes given by Susan Graham and Bradley Moore. I have performed roles with Astoria Music Festival, Miami Music Festival, Opera NEO, and San Diego Opera.

As a teacher my job is to use my knowledge and experience 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 is wonderful! She is fantastic and she doing wonders for my daughter! My daughter loves her lessons and can't wait for her next one.
I would highly recommend Sarabeth to anyone looking for lessons.

I highly recommend Sarabeth to anyone interested in singing, whether you have already had some background in voice or you are just starting out.

Sarabeth is a truly amazing voice teacher!!! She led me step by step through many vocal exercises and taught me many a great classical song! Her patience and encouragement were ever present at each lesson as I stumbled through the classical songs which were written in other languages.

I have SMA type 1-2, a severely debilitating and progressive disease, and my lung capacity was 24% of normal when Sarabeth started teaching me. Under her guidance, I was able to increase my lung capacity to 28%! Believe me when I say that this is not supposed to happen to people with SMA. In general our lung capacities continue to decrease as the disease progresses until we need to be placed under mechanical ventilation. The most common mode of death for people with SMA is respiratory failure.

I am deeply saddened that Sarabeth is moving away to Los Angeles and will no longer be able to be my singing teacher, but wishing her the best of luck there!!! I will always remember her as the incredibly wonderful teacher she is!

Sarabeth is very patient, crystal clear in her explanations and super enjoyable. My two boys were very happy and relaxed with her and with her guidance, they produced beautiful piano music. We will miss her after she moves away to LA. Good luck with your career, Sarabeth!

Sarabeth was amazing with our 8 year old son! He loves singing but has never had any formal lessons. She was very kind. If he did not understand something on the 1st attempt, she would change her approach and explain in a way that he could relate to. She made it fun for him. Also, sarabeth has been easy to work with and was willing to ajust her schedule to fit us in befor my sons talent show..

I'm an adult student and very new to piano -- after several decades since the last lesson. Sarabeth was very patient and encouraging. I learned a lot in the very first lesson.

Sarabeth teaches you how to use your voice correctly and helps you accustom it to different styles of music. She's super fun to be taught by and understanding. Plus, she's totally chill with dogs.

Sarabeth was awesome with my daughter (age 9). They had a great first lesson and we have a solid plan on what books to get moving forward and what her skill level is currently . My daughter had a great time and is looking forward to seeing her again next week!

Sarabeth has been giving my 13 year old daughter voice lessons for choir and she's been fantastic. Sarabeth is professional, cordial, knowledgeable, and shows great care and patience when instructing my daughter. In the lessons that they've done together my daughter has made noticeable and significant improvements both to her voice and her confidence.

I would recommend Sarabeth as a instructor for a voice student of any age.

Sarabeth is a very sweet, talented and dedicated teacher who is teaching piano for my two girls with Autism Spectrum very successfully. Our family is very honored in having such a wonderful teacher.
Thank You Sarabeth!

Sarabeth has been a great piano teacher for my two daughters.

She is dedicated, committed, and with a great teaching attitude. Always arrives on time and ready to start.

A big plus for Sarabeth, is that my 2 daughters have autism, and she is able to engage with them pretty effectively, and redirect them when needed as their attention and focus shifts.

I fully recommend her for Piano lessons and for kids in the Autism spectrum!

Very patient . Knowledgeable. Fun to have as a teacher. I am very pleased to have found her :)

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 ;)
