sage : \ ˈsāj \ wise through reflection and experience

Believe it or not 63.8% of our students are adults
Whether you want to be a professional musician or have had lifelong dreams of playing music, you’ll find yourself in good company at Sage Music.
Our students range from absolute beginners to intermediate players to advanced professionals looking to improve their skills and practice.
No matter what you want to learn, we’ll get you there.
Vocal coaches typically work on improving your performing skills, so it’s less common to work with a vocal coach as a beginner. However, if you are a beginner, and are really looking to grow your ability to sing in front of an audience, we can help.
In fact, most of our voice students are adult beginners. So you’ll find a welcoming environment with a team that knows how to work with folks just like you.
As an advancing singer, we’ve got the skills to get your vocal performance to the next level. We’ve worked with beginners and pros, so we know exactly how to get you from one level to the next.
At this level, it's expected that you vocal technique is generally well put together so that we can focus on your performing and interpretation.
Our students have included cast members of Saturday Night Live, Broadway performers, and producers coming to work on their vocal skills. We’ve even helped students prepare for graduate degree auditions.
That’s because we take our students as individuals, and develops plans for their unique voice.
We go above and beyond other programs by developing more advanced skills, practice habits, and learning techniques. You’ll learn more music, in a shorter amount of time, and with greater skill and security.
Develop your child’s skills in a fun and engaging way
Just like you, we want to see your kid have fun, enjoy music, and grow into a capable, successful adult. And we also know you want a program you can trust because you are busy with so many things.
That’s what we’ve designed our Arpeggio® lesson system to do. Systems such as Suzuki, ABRSM, the Royal Conservatory simply provide a sequence of songs to play. But our system is designed to develop your child’s skills, enabling them to play any music they want. That’s real growth, and real learning.
In addition, our system provides you with detailed notes every week so you can stay in touch with your child’s development. Plus your child will have the opportunity to perform every week in our student sharing hour, in our open mics, or in our regular recitals. This gives you results that you and your child can see.
The child's voice doesn't fully develop until puberty. That means they won't always learn all vocal technique until after their voice is fully formed, when they can do it safely.
In fact, most of our beginning voice lessons for kids is just vocal coaching. We'll work on performing, artistic interpretation and other musical skills. Kids will have fun singing and performing, without risking their vocal health.
That saves your child's voice for training once it is fully developed. And it give them many musical skills that will carry forward.
After your child has developed a health vocal technique, it's time to add their technique into their performances.
At this stage, we'll help them develop stronger vocal performances, incorporating all of their stage work, technique, and interpretation.
Whether your child has a serious interest in performing, or is auditioning into high schools, colleges, or other programs, we can help.
Winning a role in a production or entry into a program is so much more than singing well. You've got to have the right stage presence, an excellent technique, plus great artistry.
So let's get to work in putting them all together for a fantastic result.
Here are just a few of the things that make us a different sort of music school. Learn more about what makes us different.

This is a step-by-step guide to engaged breathing. Engaged breathing is when the mind and the body are both focusing on breathing rather than keeping it running in the background.
