About Sarah Smith

I feel that there must be a balance of work and fun, because the fun motivates so the work can be done. Then what is deemed "work" turns into fun! It is an ongoing process and the goal is to never stop wanting to learn and being curious.

Technique, tone, and note reading are really important and I like to incorporate those lessons into something the student is really interested in. The worst thing in the world is for the student to become "burnt out." If they are not progressing as fast as they are capable of, I change up the regiment. There is no universal practice plan. It has to be adjusted and tailored to fit each student's needs. When that is recognized, the student will benefit the most!
