About Sarah

Hi! My name is Sarah and I love teaching music! I have been playing the clarinet for 12 years and have a degree in Music Education from a highly rated conservatory of music (Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin). My music education background means that I have coursework and real life experience teaching a number of woodwind instruments (clarinet, flute, saxophone), piano, and music fundamentals (history, theory, aural skills).

I believe that private music instruction should be structured in a way that holistically benefits student musicality, with an emphasis on instrument fundamentals, music literacy, and improvisation.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Clarinet

I have been playing clarinet for 12 years and teaching private clarinet lessons for eight years. Clarinet is my primary instrument, and I was trained at the conservatory level. I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education. Sample repertoire includes: Saint-Saens Clarinet Sonata, Mozart Clarinet Quintet.

General Music

I am currently a K-8 general music teacher with Chicago Public Schools. I completed my BM in Music Education with an emphasis in general music. I design and implement an intensive, hands-on curriculum for 500 students.

Piano

I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education. I have played the piano for 16 years and taught piano lessons for 5 years. I have various pedagogies I use depending on the age of the student. I have taught students as young as 5 and as old as 60. I also worked for a company teaching group piano lessons in Chicago Public Schools.
