My daughter, Valerie, is 7 years old and has had two lessons so far with Sarah. Not only does Valerie love the lessons and looks forward to them, but I love the way Sarah talks to her and is caring and compassionate. She explains the exercises so well, praises Valerie when she does well, and gently corrects her when she misses the mark. Sarah communicates with me regarding Valerie's lesson and it is very easy to schedule lessons as well. I would highly recommend Sarah as voice coach for younger students as well as older ones!

I have now attended 5 lessons with Sarah and after one month, I learnt the correct techniques to breathe & sing. Certainly realized there's less to no pain in my throat compared to before lessons, and also have increase range comfortably. Sarah has different exercises to really help. Looking forward next to project my voice and singing consistently with the right techniques!

Sarah was fun and very easy to follow. She made sure that the signs that I completed were accurate and that if I had questions, she answered them very promptly and thoroughly. It was a very enjoyable session with Sarah. Hope to keep up with her and work on a good level of proficiency.

It's my first lesson with Sarah and finds her to be very knowledgeable altho she is young! :) Even tho she was having congestion, she still went through the lesson. Looking forward to learn more breathing support and expanding my range with Sarah!

Excellent teacher! Sarah is patient, engaged, and organized. Right from the start, she tested my voice to see where we should begin. Nearing the end of the lesson Sarah left me with a bunch of helpful tips and techniques to practice developing my voice.
My second lesson was just as great but due to where I was I was a bit nervous to sing too loud. Sarah quickly adapted to the situation and we worked on vocal exercises and worked on a song we had been working on. Thank you, Sarah, you are the best teacher!^^

After our 2nd lesson, Sarah sent me a picture text of her and her cast in full costume, while on set. Sarah was in a cow-suit. It was then that I realized I have a pretty dope singing teacher lol.

I was drawn to Sarah’s profile because her prices fit my college budget, and her fun personality radiated through her photos. They show how much she seems to love and enjoy musical theater and performing, and I really liked that!

So far I’ve only had three full lessons with her, and I freakin love them : )

1. Sarah is incredibly patient and understanding.
I missed out on our very first lesson because I had written down the wrong date. I felt so bad but she was really nice about the mishap and even sent me an overview of the lesson plan. I ended up filling out some questions so she could get to know me better for our next lesson, and so that the first lesson wouldn't go to waste
– thank you again Sarah!!

2. Sarah has an incredibly down-to-earth and welcoming personality that creates an environment in which you feel comfortable and relaxed.
It’s been very easy to let loose more and more with each lesson. That’s not to say that these lessons are easy. I feel relaxed but always challenged : )

3. Sarah wants the best for you and is there to encourage, aid, and push you towards becoming the singer that you have the potential to be!
She is always asking for my feedback on whether or not the advice she gives helps me better understand the vocal exercise/warm-up. She is very creative and has me engaging with my mind and body when I sing, like visualizing air fill into my body as my rib cage expands, or squatting as I reach for a high note so that my mind isn’t intimidated by it.

She is always giving me tips throughout our lessons and reminding me about all the things I need to think about and engage with while singing – stand tall, feet planted on the ground, use our “singer’s breath (through the diaphragm), engage with the resonators in my head and chest and avoid those in my nose, etc. Sarah always references to and shares with me any tips she’s received through her own vocal teacher or what she’s learned through singing/vocal workshops she’s been to. She’s full of experience and knowledge!

4. We meet through Facetime but that doesn’t stop Sarah from being able to read my facial expressions and sense when I’m holding back. I'm still learning and struggling with our vocal exercises and she always senses my hesitation, so she would repeat them again until I’m ready to attempt them. She knows when I’m holding back even when I may not be aware of it myself, and she’s always encouraging me to be more confident with my singing and voice. I really appreciate that! Please know that the quality of the lessons are amazing! Sarah never fails to catch the times I sing through my nose, forget to breathe, and my incorrect vowel sounds.

Every lesson I’ve had so far with Sarah has been really helpful and fun and I’d seriously recommend her to any beginner out there that wants to learn about/improve on their vocal technique!!!
