What People Are Saying
“Sarah is one of the most visionary, collaborative, and versatile professional artists I have experienced in 21 years of witnessing her share her creativity with diverse communities in Minnesota. I have grown in my confidence and skills as a singer under her directorship, stretched outside of my comfort-zone improvising with others from all walks of life in her Songtaneous workshops, and rejoiced in harmonizing with her as a performer. I have also had the sheer pleasure as an audience member witnessing Sarah in her element as a solo artist or member of a duo, trio or quartet adding her special flare of jazz, hip hop, bebop, beatbox, wordsmithing vocalizations to the mix. In short, she rocks!!!”
“[A] life-changing afternoon last Saturday for me; you opened up a whole new fresh start for me, who’s always known I was a singer from toddler-hood, and have been doing it out in the world now for decades and decades. I have a whole new avenue to pursue thanks to you – what gifts you have, and I love your passion for it.”
– Carol, workshop attendee
“I am so moved by the connection you generated between all of us at your wonderful workshop, Sarah. Wow! Great job leading us – you are obviously very experienced, and gifted at what you do – both in teaching AND in singing! I have already recommended you to all my friends. Thank you, thank you!”
– Brooke, workshop attendee
“Sarah, (or, ’Summa‚’ as I now call this summa cum laude grad) is a fabulous musician, fierce organizer and entrepreneurial spirit. She’s a winner in every sense of the word!”
— Judi Donaghy Vinar, member of Bobby McFerrin’s “Voicestra.
“You are an outstanding teacher and have the patience to make even novices feel comfortable.”
“I would recommend Sarah and her Songtaneous format for virtually any gathering. Sarah can read the group’s needs and offer exercises to take it to next level. The process itself is enjoyable and growthful, and when it’s all over, you’ll want to come back for more.”
— Ann D.
“It’s always a pleasure working with you. Your work with the choir was invaluable.”
— Judy St. Clair, Minnehaha Unity Church
