Hey there! Thanks for checking out my profile.
My name is Sarah, and I am a Music Therapy and Composition student at Converse. I have over 15 years of experience in piano, and play six other instruments as well. I have a passion for music, and love merging that passion with my love of teaching and helping others. I'm also a dancer, and have recently started applying my expertise to teaching others how to dance as well!
What makes my teaching style unique is that I can relate to students. I have been there, so I know how it feels. I know how practicing can be boring or frustrating, and how it can be hard to find time to practice. Using this experience I employ unique games and exercises to help motivate my students to get over these obstacles and succeed to the highest level.
Another thing that makes me unique is the fact that I am a composer. I have access to composition software, and can use that to transpose or compose music that is individual to every student's level. (This also cuts down on book costs at times.)
Overall, I just want to see my students happy and thriving in their love for music! Feel free to message me for details or if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
Observed and learned skills in piano, theory, studio work, and composition, as well as teaching techniques.
Sarah is a great instructor and seems very knowledgeable when it comes to different dance styles!
Great teacher. Simple and to the point
First lesson was okay. I still have a ways to go. Sara h was very professional and knowledgeable.
Very patient and extremely knowledgeable!!
Sarah is a great teacher for my two little ones! I always hear about the fun games and activities she has for them, and they always show off the stickers they earned. We are still fairly new, but I am pleased with her so far.
Thank You, Sarah you're Great!
Sarah is a very well rounded music teacher. I greatly appropriated her time to detail and encouragement.
