It's great to have such an exciting piano and vocal teacher that brings out the best of someone whether or not you're a semi-professional or a beginner. Taking piano and vocal lessons with Sarah is one of the best decisions I ever made. I had already had several failed attempts at learning piano but since starting with Sarah, she has sparked my creativity. I had a couple of piano lessons with Sarah and then she told me that she does vocal coaching which I now take on a fortnightly basis.

Singing with Sarah is one of the highlights of my week. She teaches by singing a line first and then we copy it, building up to the whole tune. It's really easy, relaxed and fun building up different harmonies and sounds fantastic when we've got it. No matter how I feel when I arrive I leave feeling upbeat and happy, usually singing too. I like to sing but don't have confidence. With Sarah I have sung lines on my own in front of our group and am learning to 'have a try'.
