My greatest joy is making music and sharing it with others! We'll work together on creating an engaging environment and lesson plan suited to your time and needs and will approach each lesson with clear goals and the tools to get there. Music making and your technique go hand in hand, so we'll focus on building foundations and creating excellent habits to bring the life out of your music.

For any cello student looking to build and broaden their skills, I'm excited to be a part of your learning journey!

Sarah is one in a million. You'd be hard-pressed to find a teacher (or person), as dedicated to music, teaching, and their students. Sarah always comes to lessons prepared and excited to help. She knows how to get the best out of her students. Highly highly highly recommend!
