Sarah is comfortable teaching students with different learning styles. 

Each student is of course unique but Sarah is used to accommodating her teaching style to insure each student is working towards their personal violin goals, understands what is expected of them in and outside of each lesson and is able to feel successful and empowered playing the violin. 


What type of violinist is in Sarah's Studio?

Many different types of people want to learn how to play violin and that is wonderful!

Some students come from families that are musicians and are very serious from the start and some come from families that have little to no experience with Classical music and trying it out to see if violin is for them.

Everyone is welcome in Sarah's studio!

Most studio members are young violinists but adult learners are welcome too!
