About this pro

Since 2007, I have offered personalized, fun piano and voice lessons to students of all ages, including adults. I give my students a well-rounded balance of developing creativity, mastering healthy technique, understanding music theory, improving sight-reading, exploring improvisation and composition, and nurturing inner expression. Let's not forget having fun, either! As a part of developing healthy, expressive technique, I incorporate my studies of the Alexander Technique, Body Mapping, and the Lister-Sink Method to cultivate healthy posture, free movement, and prevent injury. Healthy technique is so important because "the incidence of playing-related injury continues to hover around 60 to 70% into the 21st century" (Freeing the Caged Bird, 2006) I hold a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Music (Vocal Performance) from Lewis & Clark College. I am experienced working with students of all ages, including preschoolers and young children.

I have studied Alexander Technique with Lisa Marsh and Mary Lois Misken, studied classical piano for 16 years and studied classical and jazz singing for 7 years. I also offer experience in improvisation, songwriting, singing with a band, and concert tours.

I love helping students grow and acheive their goals.  I find it rewarding to teach children, teens and adults.

    Sara is an excellent piano instructor. She is great at encouraging my dyslexic daughter to push herself without being too pushy. She has a love of music and easily passes that on to others. Looking forward to my daughter working with Sara for many years to come

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I begin by assessing what the student already knows and setting goals with the student according to what they wish to learn.  I always cater lessons to the individual needs of each student. For children, I incorporate games to explain and reinforce relevant concepts and to keep young students engaged.  Older students and adults have opportunities to select some of their own songs, choosing from classical, jazz, folk, rock, Broadway, and popular music.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold a B.A in Music (Vocal Performance) from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I have studied classical piano for 16 years and studied classical and jazz singing for 7 years.

As a part of developing healthy, expressive technique, I incorporate my studies of the Alexander Technique, Body Mapping, and the Lister-Sink Method to cultivate healthy posture, free movement, and prevent injury.
