Sarah - Beth  - piano, voice
ASD and Mainstream Tuition 

Sarah-Beth is a songwriter, vocalist, pianist and recording artist who believes music to be one of the most valuable forms of self-expression.
In 2019, she completed a BA in Popular Music with first class honours at the MTU Cork School of Music, Ireland.

Sarah - Beth has completed a Masters in Music Performance there as well ,whereby she showcased original compositions through a series of live performances.

Having begun piano lessons as a young child, the Cork native only recognised the significant role music would play in her life when she started composing as a teenager. The therapeutic effect of writing was enough to lead her to obsessively tinkering on the piano for hours each day. Therefore, her belief as a teacher is to identify and nurture her student’s natural abilities.


As all children are unique, she encourages them to engage with music in a way that works for them. She considers a holistic approach to learning music best. This involves developing a student’s aural, harmonic, reading and improvisational skills in order to broaden their musical perspective and promote critical thinking.

 

All the while, her lessons are designed to be fun, engaging and catered to the individual’s needs.
