About this pro
Music should be a fun and rewarding activity for all ages to enjoy. In my studio, the student will get personal and individualized attention where they can learn in a manner that best suits them. First and foremost, my goal is to allow the student to experience the joy of singing. I have an emphasis in vocal health, so my students will learn a healthy vocal technique, appropriate body alignment, performance techniques, fundamentals of music, and confidence. While my training is in classical voice and opera, I am also comfortable teaching musical theater, light jazz, and popular music. I have worked with children and adults alike, ranging from beginner to more advanced. I will travel to your home or you may come to my home studio. I have been teaching for over a year and am currently pursuing my masters in voice pedagogy which gives me valuable teacher training. -Students must have a keyboard/piano available for in-home lessons -Must be accessible via public transportation for in-home lessons Bio Sarah E, soprano, is a recent 2013 graduate of Towson University where she earned her bachelor of music in vocal performance, studying under Professor Theresa Bickham.
