Sarah’s recent performances include Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro with San Francisco Cabaret Opera, The Cherub in Telemann’s Der gedultige Socrates with San Francisco Early Music Society and The Legend of the Werewolf at Diablo Light Opera Company. Originally from Southern California, Sarah has been singing since the age of ten when she began singing with an all girl trio performing throughout Los Angeles. As an adult she traveled to New York City to study theatre and drama at HB Studios under the mentorship of Uta Hagen and Herbert Berghof. While on the east coast she performed with various Off-Broadway theatre companies such as Playwright’s Horizons and Avalon Repertory Theatre while interning at the legendary Performing Garage under the auspices of Willem Da Foe, Elizabeth La Compte and Spaulding Gray. Upon returning to California, Sarah studied classical theatre at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre and obtained a BA in vocal performance at California State University.
It is my mission to provide the highest quality vocal training possible while focusing on the individual needs of the student. By maintaining a commitment to my personal continuing professional development, I guarantee that my students are taught with the knowledge of the most recent developments in the field of voice pedagogy and performance. In addition, I strive to create an environment in which my students feel safe to explore their creativity and express themselves fully. Using appropriate materials and adjusting my teaching style accordingly, I work with students of diverse ages, genders and backgrounds to aid them in developing their full vocal potential and reach their self-defined goals. I provide ample opportunity for my students to publicly perform and showcase their progress. Annual formal recitals, NATS group recitals, as well as audition workshops are regularly held. Advanced students are encouraged to participate in competitions such as the NATS Singing Festival held every Spring, solo recitals and community theatre. These various services make my offerings the highest quality vocal education experience in the area. My students receive a premium service and attain premium results.
