I have been teaching private vocal lessons since I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Modern Music (Vocal Performance) in 2015. I have also taught private piano lessons since 2012. I love to empower my students with the ability to express themselves through music! I believe that music is a language in which all are able to understand, but few are able to speak. I view my job as more than just a theory, technique, and music instructor. I am also a teacher of the language that is music. Theory, technique, and understanding how to sing properly are all very important. However, to express oneself through music is to experience a greater ability to connect with yourself and with others. This is also very important. Let me help you learn to read music, understand theory, sing safely, or prepare for you for an upcoming audition all the while learning the language that is MUSIC!

About Sarah M.

I have been singing since I could speak. That is, according to my mom. I began voice lessons and performing at a very young age and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in vocal performance from Visible Music College in Memphis, TN in 2015. I am a songwriter, vocalist, and music teacher. Since graduating I have worked for a high production church in Ohio where I was the music assistant. I was involved in many major productions as a coordinator and performer. Since graduating, I have also been a private voice instructor who focuses on vocal technique, vocal health, performance preparation, and finding your voice!

I believe that “finding your voice” can be the hardest part of singing. Your voice is your instrument, so to understand how to use your instrument - you have to understand yourself! The beauty of voice is that everyone is different. Everyone has something spectacularly unique about their voice and I see it as my job to help you discover and utilize that difference.

You can expect a positive learning environment with frequent emphasis on the importance of vocal health. As a performer, I have found that one of the most consistent difficulties of being a vocalist is staying in good health! Since your voice is your instrument, and you want to care well for your instrument, you must care well for yourself.

I am also a skilled pianist and have taught piano lessons since 2012. This skill has helped me to be an excellent theory instructor within my voice lessons. I believe that theory and good technique are both essential in musicianship, but I also believe that pursuing your passion is equally important. My teaching methods include theory, technique, vocal health, and the discovery of your voice.
