Sarah Town

Welcome to Uptown Music in Durham, NC! // ¡¡Bienvenidos a Música de la Zona Alta en Durham, NC!! I’m thrilled to share the joy of music with you, your family, and the community. (Hablo español. Por favor comuníquese con cualquier duda.)

Uptown Music offers piano and voice lessons, ensemble coaching, and theory and history tutoring. Performance students of all ages, beginning through intermediate levels, are welcome! I am a big fan of Piano Safari’s well-researched and holistic approach to piano instruction and musicianship.

Please also consider Uptown Music for collaborative piano and solo or small combo performance opportunities featuring classical, Latin, folk, popular, and jazz repertoires.

Here is a little bit more about me, Sarah Town:

Originally classically trained in piano and voice, today Sarah’s performance repertoire and research interests range from Bach and art song through jazz, Latin, folk, and popular music. As a pedagogue, she works with students to identify their interests and motivation for music study, and then curates materials that will help them meet those goals. She favors a holistic approach that bolsters students’ strengths while addressing their growth areas. Regardless of the student’s area of study, she seeks to foster creativity and inspiration alongside technical development.

Sarah’s teaching experience includes: San Francisco Arts Education, City College of New York, Passaic County Community College, Princeton University, Duke University, Global Arts to Go, Skylark Music, Triangle Music School. Sarah’s performance experience includes: sarah y su cachito (New York), Raices Cultural Center (New Jersey), Women’s Voices Chorus (Chapel Hill, NC). She teaches out of her home in Durham, NC.
