Introduction: In my studio, I teach voice, music theory, beginner piano, speech, and elocution. I also coach music and diction, including Italian, French, German, Latin, and English, as well as the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Currently, I am a professional opera singer, singing across the United States and abroad. My most recent engagements included the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Chicago Lyric, l’Opera National de Bordeaux in France, and the Staatstheater Karlsruhe in Germany. With my musical background in the Canadian Royal Conservatory of Music, as well as both a bachelor's and master's degrees in music from the Lamont School of Music, I believe a solid classical technique and strong musical knowledge work together to form the foundation for performance. As a classical vocalist, one of my passions is vocal pedagogy. So as a teacher, I feel the most important job is to help my students develop a free and easy vocal production, devoid of physical tension or bad habits. I strive to cater each lesson to my students' individual needs, discovering and developing their own unique gifts, while teaching a general classical technique. In my studio, we focus on correct posture and breath support, as well as the ease of vocal production and stage presence in all genres, including classical, opera, music theatre, contemporary, pop, rock, country, jazz, folk, Christian, and gospel. Currently, my students range from young children to adults and seniors of all abilities and aspirations. I also prepare pre-college students for their auditions and entrance into college music programs in voice and theory; however, whether you wish to perform professionally or to sing in your local church choir, professional voice lessons can be a rewarding experience. Music and performing can help in all aspects of life, from presenting yourself in a professional manner to developing a work ethic. I truly believe that with time and effort, anyone can learn, no matter what their background or experience level is. Thank you, and I look forward to working with you!

Singing Lessons

I’ve been working with Sarah for nearly 2 months now and I can honestly say she’s made the biggest difference not only in my voice (yes, big difference there for sure, and totally not to be overlooked!!!), but also in my passion for performing. I really value her knowledge as a working professional and she gives great direction and food for thought for auditioning and other aspects of voice and performance for someone like me who is a working towards being a professional performer. Sarah is a delightful energy and I really look forward to my lessons because I love working with her. Plainly, she brightens my day and inspires me. I love the feeling that I’m finally getting a voice teacher that meets all my wants and needs after years of struggling to find the right fit. I feel like my review doesn’t even do her justice, but you definitely won’t regret hiring her!

So far I’ve only had one lesson but I felt we clicked right away. She is very open and caring and is already helping me come out of my shell. She is helping me be more confident in my singing and teaching me new techniques. Definitely would recommend!
