Sarah Luebke, a phenomenal instructor in voice was and still is one of the most influential people in my life. As an instructor and mentor, Sarah worked with me for three years in her time in Iowa. While working with her I was in high school and I couldnt have asked for a better teacher to help me rise to be the best musician and person I could be. As any young student, I was nervous to take private voice lessons, but my thought process on that quickly changed. I discovered that Sarah is a kind, welcoming, and very educated musician herself that with her mind, body, and soul wants to help others discover their own creativity and self-expression through the beauty of music. She gets to know each student and fine-tunes her teaching style to mesh with each individual she works with. After each lesson, I felt more educated and more motivated because I was positively pushed by her to challenge myself and to be the best I could be in everything that I do. In our three years spent together, I accomplished many hurdles in the music world. With Sarahs expertise, one accomplishment that stands out the most is that I placed first in the high school mens category in the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) 2014 National Student Auditions in Boston, MA. I know for a fact that I couldnt have asked for a better guide in my musical journey, and with that, I recommend Sarah Luebke to any student, young and old, amateur or experienced, because she works above and beyond any other vocal instructor I have ever encountered.
