Sarah has studied Irish fiddle music under notable Irish fiddlers such as Tommy Peoples and Kevin McKee. From a young age, she attended classes at many Irish music festivals in the U.S., and traveled to Ireland for four weeks to learn more. Her experience with pop/rock styles began in college when she created her own string arrangements out of popular songs on the radio. She then took this love for playing popular music when she began performing with Electria.
After completing her music degree, Sarah found a love for teaching when she began her own lesson studio of private violin and viola students in 2015. Sarah also started a violin ensemble class and co-founded a community strings program called String Sounds. Students studying with Sarah have been featured soloists in their school orchestras, and have achieved Honors Orchestra and All-State orchestra positions.
Sarah really enjoys the opportunity to share her joy in making music with students. Being able to play an instrument opens up an opportunity for expression and creativity, and connecting with others through social playing. Seeing her students progress and reach their goals is so exciting. Sarah is very skilled at teaching strong foundational techniques, and then building on these with more advanced techniques to allow for progression in musicality and maturity. With her background in Classical, Irish fiddle, and pop/rock music, Sarah provides instruction for a variety of musical interests.
