Working with Sarah has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!! I started out as a BRAND NEW singer— hardly ever even singing in the shower! I was very nervous, shy and had absolutely no singing skills. Sarah helped me feel comfortable right away and gave me set exercises to practice everyday to develop my voice. Since working with Sarah my singing range has increased tremendously and I’ve developed a much more full and consistent tone. I’ve been working with her for 2 years now and continue to grow and evolve as a singer with every lesson. Sarah is amazing at breaking things down in an easy-to-understand way and is very encouraging and positive. She always makes lessons fun and encourages me when I get frustrated. I HIGHLY recommend working with Sarah— she’s an amazing teacher that delivers results!Apr 15, 2020VerifiedSoulfulwake Studio's reply
Girl you are incredibly committed! I’m so happy to be your coach and watch you fly!
Sarah is an excellent coach! I've been going once a week or every other week, and practice at home, and at the end of every lesson I hear improvement in my vocal ability. She is able to communicate her instructions or tips in a way I can understand. She also has a very approachable, bubbly, welcoming personality that makes the initial nerves of singing in front of others disappear. She makes sure to give positive as well as constructive feedback. To sum up, taking lessons with Sarah is always fun and motivating. Her lessons are a great start for beginners like me who don't know exactly where to start. Keep up the great work Sarah!Jul 17, 2017Soulfulwake Studio's reply
You are such a blessing to this world! Love you! Thank you for such thoughtful and kind words :)
The best you can get! Sarah is the teacher that you need! Super fun and enjoyable to work with. Every lesson outcome is huge improvement of your singing skills. Don't even doubt!Dec 3, 2016
Where to even begin... in my year of working with Sarah I've grown so much as a singer. :) I feel so much stronger throughout my range and feel as though I can comfortably sing much harder songs than what I've started. I've sung throughout my life but now more than ever I get so many more compliments on my singing, especially from people with training! In addition to Sarah having great knowledge and is an excellent teacher, she also makes lessons such a fun experience. Sarah is encouraging no matter your level of experience, and truly wants you to accomplish your singing dreams and expressing yourself as a musician! Thank you SO much for your amazing teaching Sarah!! <3Jan 3, 2018Soulfulwake Studio's reply
Thank you Anupa for such kind words and such a detailed and thoughtful review! I can only dream of the things you’ll do with such a gift!
I've been taking voice lessons with Sarah for about 6 months. I chose Sarah because of the quality and detail of her initial responses, as well as her obvious enthusiasm for teaching. I came to her as a hopeless cause in his mid-thirties who could never hit a note. Sarah and her teaching have shown me that I *do* have a voice in there and that I *can* do this. Her techniques and patience have helped me open up my range and start building tone and charecter to my voice. As a teacher, Sarah is professional and fun, patient and caring. She's always happy to try and explain concepts in different ways to help with my understanding. Everything we do in our lessons feels tailored completely to my voice, my issues and my goals. I'm not normally much of a reviewer, but I want to see Sarah succeed and I'm sure there's many of you out there wanting to take the first step into learning how to sing and unsure of where to start. I strongly recommend you contact Sarah and tell her your goals and listen to what she has to say.Jul 18, 2017Soulfulwake Studio's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Currently offering a one time lesson to try things out for $75 over Zoom! (Over 50% off)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First lesson is discovering where your voice is at. It's important to get a feel for your vocal range and ability to smoothly transition and connect your vocal bridges. I also make it a priority to know what inspires your love of music, what drives you to be your best, and what your learning style is. Feeling safe and accepted in all states and in all parts of the journey is very important to me as well. I am consistently relational and encouraging, because I believe in positivity and affirmation as the key to success. I strive to set high goals and standards, and I expect them to be achieved through hard work, grace, and inspiration. One of my many goals for you is to ensure that you achieve the full benefit, and full value of each and every session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Vocally educated since age 13. Former lead vocalist/guitarist for over four years through church. Formally trained pianist, self taught guitarist, and thriving songwriter. I have been singing since a young child, creating songs at the age of a few years old, and writing music since junior high, as well as singing back up in church. I become a worship leader in high school and lead the entire band of instrumentalists which included: (background vocals, piano, drums, guitar, and bass). I've trained under Seth Riggs, the creator of Speech Level Singing, and am now able to change the lives of others, through my gift of knowledge, and my ability to bring out your BEST.
