    SAS music is a wonderful company. Lessons are organized, well-planned and fun- and super convenient since the lessons come to you! Kids receive extra incentives, prizes and perks all the time along with the incredible music theory and instruction. My daughter LOVES her teacher and looks forward to lessons every week. SAS also offers many additional opportunities for instruction and experience such as music workshops and open-mics. We are so glad we found SAS!

    My 11 year old daughter has had a beyond outstanding experience with Sarah and her music company, SAS. Through voice lessons, my daughter's voice has improved and developed, and she has established a wonderful relationship with her voice teacher. Sarah/SAS has provided my daughter with multiple opportunities to perform individually and with a student rock band, which has helped her improve her confidence and stage presence. I am thankful to Sarah for her influence on my daughter and for helping her enjoy her love of singing.

Pricing varies with the season, we offer different summer pricing than the regular school year. Please contact for current pricing. 

Most packages are monthly rates but we do often offer personalized packages based on a student's specific needs.

Students aren't all "one size" neither should their music lessons be!


How did you get started teaching?

I found my first private student at a Christmas party, (over 12 years ago!) where I was playing, the mother approached me about lessons and everything was a domino effect after that. I was in college at the time and found I really loved teaching -specifically motivating my students to new heights and always inspiring them to be GREAT musicians, not just "good".

I loved creating my own curriculum and teaching materials, designed specifically to the needs of my students and being an advocate for music education. 

Nearly 10 years ago I began hiring instructors to work with me and created a team of teachers truly dedicated to providing quality music lessons.


What types of students have you worked with?

Ages 4 - adult. All skill sets. We work with students who strongly desire to be musicians and students who are just supplementing their education.  Learning music will benefit all types of students. 

Our goal is to amplify their strengths and improve their weaknesses. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a teacher who is highly dedicated to your learning experience, not just an instructor you "like". Be sure they care that you are learning something and are enabling you to become independent musically. A good instructor will motivate you to practice and desire for you to do things well. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Why do they want to teach and do they enjoy it?

Will they teach me to understand music or just to imitate them? 

Will they inspire me to reach my full potential?
