Hi, my name is Sarah and I would love to teach you to become a better musician.
I began teaching at the Nevada Blind Children's Foundation as a piano instructor in my senior year of high school. Since then, I have taught as a music teaching assistant at Stony Brook University and a violin, viola, and cello teacher at Music & Arts in Mount Sinai.
I am currently the viola studio teaching assistant under Professor Nancy Buck at the Arizona State University School of Music.
I aim to teach my students more than just the basics. My students should expect to master: how to play their instrument most efficiently, body awareness, relaxed and proper posture, musicality and thoughtful phrasing, some aspects of music theory and ear training, stage presence, and more.
Most importantly, I will help my students grow more confident in their musical abilities. My goal is to help nurture my students' musical talents and help them grow into their potential.
I love learning from Sarah as an adult student! She is so patient and kind, and explains things in multiple ways if I am confused. I definitely recommend her for any student!
It was a very welcoming approach to the Violin world my daughter felt on her 1st lesson. Sarah was so patient,soft spoken and well versed with her violin skills that made the class worthwhile.
Kids loved Sarah
Very patient, positive, and kind!
Sarah is a lovely young lady who is passionate, kind, and patient. Her upbeat energy and positive reinforcement really helps my little one feel confident in her skills as a violinist. As an instructor she seems very passionate about what she is teaching going that extra mile to ensure that you get what you need and more!+ Read More
