Sarah is the director of Alley Bell Music. She teaches Music Together® Mixed Ages, K-2 Music Fundamentals and Private Voice. She earned a B.M. in Music Education from Western Washington University, and an M.M. in Voice Pedagogy from Texas Christian University. It was during her time at TCU that she was introduced to Music Together. She received her Music Together Teacher Certification training in 2011 and her Level 1 Teacher Certification in 2017 from the co-author of Music Together, Lili Levinowitz.  Sarah has over ten years of experience teaching K-6 General Music for the Edmonds and Shoreline school districts, and has been teaching private voice for over 15 years.  Prior to starting Alley Bell Music, she was also on the music faculty at Shoreline Community College. Sarah performs locally as a professional soprano soloist, and is a member of the local and national chapters of the National Association of Teachers of Singing. She likes to joke that her life is filled with beautiful noise in and out of the classroom, as she is also the mother of two boisterous young boys, Josiah and Jamison.
