About this pro

Hello! I enjoy the challenge of addressing each individual (both singing challenges and learning styles). Everyone learns so differntly, so I teach differntly! 

In lessons, we work a lot on technique (that's why you are taking lessons, right?!) We also work a lot on performance aspects (when you are ready) so that you feel confident in your singing and you reach your audience on a deep level! 

And- there is a lot of hand holding. We work at a pace that feels comfortable for you, and a warm and encouraging enviroment! 

I enjoy working with beginners and adressing their big challenges and fears about singing. They have a much better feeling about singing after just one lesson and are ulitmately much more confident about performing!

    I have studied with Sarah Schroeder for the last year. The product of my voice going in and the one you hear today can barley becompared due to the fact that it is an entirely new voice. The depth and quality of my tone, understanding of the techniques taught, andability to sing in ways I have not before are all due to the knowledge, patience, and talents of Sarah Schroeder. Although a classical singer herself, she is able to teach how that type of singing can be branched out to all areas of singing. Longevity of the voice is always a top focusand you cannot help but feel safe with your voice her hands. Aside from singing, she is kind, caring, and a great listener.
