About Sandra

Welcome to my studio at Music & Arts! I’m a lifelong professional jazz pianist-singer and public school music educator of 22 years.  I believe that music is a language of the human spirit and that everyone deserves a music education.  It is my joy to help students live up to their creative potential while providing a positive and motivating role model for them.  My approach to teaching music is tailored to the developmental speed and individual needs of learners.  I focus upon the basics of music (melody, rhythm and harmony) and performance skills (i.e., playing or singing a piece of music from beginning to end in a relaxed and confident manner). Intermediate and advanced piano students will enjoy discovering additional musical pathways in my studio, and beginners are welcome.  Vocal students will learn the importance of centering and breathing and can learn easy self-accompanying piano stylings.
