Every person is unique and experiences their instrument in a unique way. My teaching method is highly individualized, addressing a student's psyche as much as their instrument, and relying on their feedback to make sure they understand successes or setbacks. In terms of pedagogy, I believe that the voice should be built from the top down, first strengthening the middle/higher notes and allowing for a smooth transition between the passaggi before teaching any "belting". This will ensure that vocal health is the primary goal so the student can sing for as long as they want! After vocal health, my concern is that students have fun so they keep singing. I celebrate successes (and attempts) as much as possible and take any failures or setbacks as a sign that I didn’t communicate something effectively. I have experience teaching all ages but if I am to take charge of a young voice I will need to ensure that children (under the age of 14) are committed to their vocal health by first interviewing them with their parents.

I earned my Bachelor of Music (in Music Theater) from Oklahoma City University in 2013. In addition to teaching, I have been performing professionally in musicals and films.

About Sarah D.

Every person is unique! As a teacher, my goal is to find out how each student learns so I can communicate healthy technique in a way that they can understand. So my teaching method is highly individualized, addressing a student's psyche as much as their instrument, and relying on their feedback to make sure they understand successes or setbacks.

I am also a big believer in positive reinforcement. I want you to develop confidence in your voice! That way you have fun and keep on singing for the rest of your life.

Sarah is my first professional vocal instructor. My private lessons with her - whether online or in-person - are always fun and educational. Sarah is not only a fabulous vocalist herself, but she also can sing in a variety of styles and brings her vast knowledge of vocal technique to each lesson. She is currently seeking higher education in order to develop further as a vocalist and a vocal instructor, so you definitely receive great training each lesson! Sarah is always joyful, positive and encouraging as she brings me to the "next level" of vocal technique! She is a fabulous teacher for any age and experience level, which is hard to find in a teacher.

She is very detailed, methodical in her approach and has a great teaching personality. I really benefited and improved taking voice lessons from her. She has an in depth knowledge in vocal training. Also she can explain vocal technical details and musical terms to a student very well.

Sarah was patient and brought lots of techniques to the table to help me improve the break between my head and chest voice and increase the range of my voice overall, as well as help me practice healthy vocal habits.
