I strongly believe that every individual is unique, and it is my desire to support each student in reaching his/her/their musical goals. With a background in both violin/viola and music therapy, I have an understanding of the way music impacts the whole person — body, mind and spirit. This combination equips me with a holistic teaching style.

About Sarah Beth S.

I extensive training in both viola and violin. Places of study include University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, Aspen Music Festival and School, Belmont University, and more. I have completed course work for a bachelor's degree in music therapy (lacking only an internship to complete the degree) at Belmont University in Nashville. I take great joy in teaching and being part of the development of an artist.
