About this pro

Growing up in an artistic family in Southern California, performing artist Sabrina Fuster, (aka artist name: Sabrina Carmen), began to train her powerful vocals with a wide range of influences including Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston, and Ella Fitzgerald. After deferring her acceptance into the Berklee College of Music in Boston to study songwriting, Sabrina was cast in her first feature film, "Elena Undone," which premiered at Outfest in 2010. In addition to playing a supporting character in the movie, Sabrina wrote and recorded "Suddenly," an original song that was featured in the film and on its soundtrack. Years of developing her craft have now led Sabrina to writing songs for other artists, including European pop sensation, Suzanna Lubrano, recording the title track for the film "Wheels," writing and recording the title track for the short "Opposite Actions," performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live with Youngblood Hawke & Thirty Seconds to Mars, recording vocals on the Thirty Seconds to Mars album, “LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS,” and co-writing with legendary songwriters, Billy Steinberg and Ken Hirsch.  She is also a voice-over artist for many commercial campaigns and national brands including T-mobile, Pizza Hut, Johnnie Walker, and The Container Store, and has been seen/heard singing and acting on camera in a national commercial for Gap with Janelle Monáe, as well as seen singing on James Corden's, The Late Late Show, performing the song from the Gap commercial. 
Sabrina's heart is in live performance, which she does on a regular basis at various venues throughout California. Sabrina has been releasing singles and corresponding music videos on YouTube since early 2015, which collectively, have surpassed 400k views on YouTube, and found their way to radio charts. 
In addition to performing, Sabrina is passionate about sharing her experiences with others, and teaching the craft she knows and loves. She has a wide age range of piano, singing, songwriting, and voice-over students, she teaches privately through a lesson studio she created and co-owns with her husband called: Blue Box Music. Blue Box Music offers both in-person lessons as well as online classes in a variety of instruments and musical studies, offering top-quality instruction from both Sabrina and her husband, Andrew.

It's thrilling to share my love for music with my students. I hold my own teachers and mentors in the highest regard, and I am passionate about helping others cultivate their creative voice. I teach all levels of singing, beginner to intermediate piano and pop piano, songwriting, and voice-over acting.

    My daughter started lessons with Sabrina about 3 months ago. I've noticed her sing more often since then and enjoy listening to music. Sabrina is in the music industry and has a lot to teach. Thank you for being Jades music teacher!
