Teaching Career

 

Sarah has always been eager to pass on to other students her passion for music and was early praised for her teaching skills.

 

This inspired her to join Ms Mayumi Kameda’s Pedagogy course at the Geneva Conservatoire where she eventually got her degree of Master of Arts in Music Pedagogy, with distinction.

 

During her studies, Sarah has taken part in different seminars and masterclasses such as Thomas Bolliger’s courses, François Creux’s masterclass on Improvisation and Véronique Gobet’s group pedagogy class.

 

She has also written a dissertation on the piano attitude and psychology of the child music prodigy.

 

Therefore, Sarah has been able to use an innovative teaching approach, with both individual and groups of students, adapted to her students’ needs.

 

A strong believer that music is for sharing, Sarah has set up over the last few years Music Chamber workshops and musical storytelling sessions, in collaboration with actors and other musicians.

 

She has attended a year-long course at the Jacques Dalcroze Institute of Geneva, in order to learn and practise the well-known Dalcroze Method.

 

Sarah is continuing to research the close relationship between Body and Instrument, with the regular and very enriching help of Physiotherapist Coralie Cousin in Paris .

 

Sarah was a supply teacher for three years at Geneva Conservatoire, after which she held a post in 2009 at La Lyre School in Geneva.

 

After a year’s teaching in London, Sarah has since September 2011been working in Paris at the Darius Milhaud Conservatoire of the 14th arrondissement, in Paris (Principal : C. Marchand) and will be teaching this year at the “Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional d’Aubervilliers-La Courneuve”.
