What Is Voice and Performance Coaching?

A consultation with Sarah is like having access to your own personal Director and Therapist.

Regardless of whether you are preparing for the biggest audition, interview, performance, or presentation of your life, there are equal matters of technical skill, artistic flair, and mental health to consider.

As a voice coach, Sarah is known to be a dynamic troubleshooter and can promptly discern any technical difficulties. She draws upon a great collection of warm-up exercises and activities to ensure that you and your instrument are safe, finely tuned, and in perfect sync for the task at hand.

As a performance coach, she focuses her attention on the details. Sarah’s mission is to nurture works that promote emotional depth and connection, creative problem solving, and unique storytelling. She will promptly and consistently polish you to the pinnacle of your technique while providing a safe atmosphere for the exploration of the heart of your message. 

As a specialist in reducing performance anxiety, Sarah is intricately aware of the many symptoms and false beliefs that are magnified “under the spotlight”. With over 15 years of extended training in various disciplines of complementary therapies, she excels at liberating others from their personal traumas and uses a revolutionary toolkit of kinetic exercises that have been proven to be efficacious for anxiety disorders- into the specific domain of performance anxiety.


Sarah’s sessions are always geared toward an achievable goal as opposed to the abstract development of one’s technique.
