Sarah's Piano Studio


About this pro

I recently finished my doctorate in piano performance and collaborative piano at LSU and relocated to the St. Louis area.  I am looking to build a studio for students who are beginner through advanced.  I have taught private lessons for the past 18 years.  Teaching is a passion of mine and I am looking for students who are excited to learn and ready for a commitment!

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

I structure all of my lessons based on the individual student, their needs, age, and goals.  I do require all of my students to learn to read music.

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

I began teaching when I was 14 under the guidance of my teacher Sue Knutson.  During my undergraduate degree I did a dual major in piano performance and piano pedagogy (the art of teaching).  My master and doctorate degrees are in piano performance.  I am a member of MTNA, Slamta, and will be joining the local chapter of federation.  I have taught private and group lessons for children to adults.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My studio pricing is set up by tuition for each semester.  I do a fall, spring, and summer semester and require students to pay either in full for each semester or at the first lesson of the month.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from as young as age 4, to college students, and adult students.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

During my doctoral degree, I won a concerto competition was honored with the opportunity to solo with the LSU Symphony.  I performed the Gerhswin Concerto.

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

Make sure you ask questions regarding the teacher's expectation on practice, performance, and competitions.
