Sarah is wonderful! She is very thoughtful, organized, and caring in her teaching approach. She has a well-rounded background that allows her to structure lesson to cater to each of her students as individuals. As a flutist and performer, she leads by a wonderful example for her students in all aspects of music including tone, rhythm, and style.

Throughout the last seven years I've known Sarah, I've continued to be impressed with her dedication to music and her unwavering effort in improving her skills and knowledge. I don't know anyone who works harder or is more professional than she is. Sarah truly cares about her students and is great at recognizing their strengths while empowering and guiding them to reach their musical goals.
