Lessons Focus On:

Learning healthy, age-appropriate vocal technique

Developing stage presence & acting technique

Learning in a positive, safe (and sometimes even silly) environment

Amplifying singers’ unique strengths

Lilly loves to sing. Working with Sarah builds her confidence, her love of music and most of all… gave her the courage to reach beyond her natural talent to strive for technique. When Lilly performs, we feel lucky to have shared this gift with her.”

student success stories

here’s what parents & students are saying about me: 

Since I started taking lessons with Sarah, my voice has developed so much over the last two years, and so has my confidence.  A year ago, I couldn’t stand up and audition in front of only 10 people. But now I’m thinking about inviting 100 people to my recital! Sarah’s an amazing voice teacher!

Ryan, 10 years old

Taking voice lessons with Sarah helped me with getting an agent and start booking roles on kid shows. I get a lot of auditions that ask me to sing, and Sarah helps me work on those auditions.  I woudn’t have gotten the jobs I did without her.

Sydney, 11 years old

Sarah laid a solid foundation for my daughter to feel more confident in her singing. She was the first person (outside our family) my daughter ever sang to, and her boost in confidence in her talent has been remarkable, I even saw it after just a few lessons.  

Vina, Parent

“Sarah has given me the confidence and support to follow my passion further than I ever thought I could… I have noticed so many strides in my voice that I never thought were possible.”

I have noticed how much more confident Laila is in her vocal ability. Sarah always makes the lessons fun and puts things in a really positive way which has helped Laila come out of her shell and feel super comfortable. I love how much dedication Sarah has for her craft and how she has gone above and beyond for us.

Nadine, Parent

I’ve improved my singing incredibly. I now have a bigger range than I ever thought had. Now I’m able to comfortably sing all types of music, including jazz, pop, everything! And and I’m actually doing a five week Berkeley program this summer specifically for voice, and I couldn’t have done that without Sarah. 

Rori, 16 years old

I’d love to chat with you to see how I can help your young singer this summer, too!
