About

September 2023 Lessonface Teacher Spotlight of the Month

(Please reach out if you need a time outside of the availability schedule. I'm quite flexible!)

Lessons: I believe learning the fundamentals and ideas behind WHY songs work will help you better teach yourself and build a solid foundation. Learning from several angles early on is essential - songs, patterns, a little theory, creative accidents -it all adds up to becoming an experienced musician.  If you have gaps in your knowledge, we'll try to fill them.  I have a large library of educational resources and cross-reference from several books and study materials. We"ll aim toward any style(s)  you are most interested in.

Specialization in adults interested in learning an instrument for the first time. As a patient teacher, I will work with you at your speed to reach your goals.

  • SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound

I promote diversity in education and offer a safe and encouraging environment for all.

Really a good format for me as it was pick and choose, lets me integrated what I was trying to achieve but still learn new ideas, the Triads have been a great daily exercise for soloing and hammer on off practice, will be doing these programs moving forward better format for me than one on one lessons.

Great class if I am able to attend or just use the tools to improve or extend my skill set. Really like the ability to be around others with similar skill sets that have chosen to use this format.

Sara does a great job enjoy her classes and the wide range of styles she was made to be an educator/instructor comes very naturally to her. This is my third class with her and at times the material repeats from prior classes, but that being said I will be back.
