I have over a decade of experience in teaching traditional classical lessons and especially love coaching beginners. I have been studying fiddle styles and jazz/improvisation for the past several years so that I can craft my lessons to best suit the interest of my students. I've been esteemed to have a lot of patience and consideration for my students needs so they feel comfortable to be vulnerable for growth. My end goal is to have my students find their own musical voice and ways to make music an active part of their life for a long time.

About Sarah G.

I have a K-12 music teaching degree and over a decade of experience working at daycares, preschools, church kids ministry, YMCA, etc. because of how passionate I am to work with young artists. I believe everyone (even big kids aka adults) has the ability to learn to music and discover ways to apply it to their life. I primarily teach string instruments (violin, viola, cello, ukulele, beginner guitar) but also have years of experience teaching beginner piano. I grew up classically trained and familiar with Suzuki curriculum but also have been studying fiddle styles and jazz/improvisations and songwriting to better help coach my students. I also actively gig in the local music scene doing a live looping violin/ukulele set and also in a rock band and striving to provide more live music that is family friendly. Let me help you, or someone you know, discover new ways to engage with music!
