Sarah was inspired to take up guitar at 10 years old by a friend, the idea being that the two of them were going to start a band (just like all their idols). But while her friend’s interest in guitar faded away and no such rockstar dreams were fulfilled, Sarah’s passion for music has carried on for 16 years, finding its creative outlet within teaching. She has been working with Western Hills Music since 2010, teaching electric and acoustic guitar as well as ukulele, ranging in genres from heavy metal to classical guitar and methods from tablature to notation and music theory. The most important thing to Sarah as a teacher is to cater her lessons to the student’s learning pace and style, as well as to focus on music they want to learn while also introducing them to new concepts that will improve their playing and musical portfolio.
