Sarah Katherine






I have performed in multiple plays, weddings, pit orchestras, and other events and ensembles such as the Grosse Pointe Symphony, MYAF College Concerto Orchestra, Michigan Youth Symphony Orchestra, Chelsea House Orchestra, Lourdes Musicians and others.

As the violinist in the band The Juliets, I wrote and performed all violin parts as well as a few vocals here and there. The Juliets' music appeared on iTunes and other online music stores, and we worked with Chrysler as part of their 2012 Imported from Detroit campaign.

I have recorded at studios including The Tempermill Detroit, The Gallery Studio in Brooklyn, Big Sky Recordings in Ann Arbor, Solid Sound in Ann Arbor and others.

I arrange with clients and colleagues to carry out musical events such as parties, weddings, recordings, funerals and others. In addition, I coordinate compensation, travel, musical arrangements and any other necessary details for these events, spanning from Michigan to New York.

I have been teaching independently since 2004, with experience in classical, Celtic fiddle, bluegrass, rock and improvisation. In addition to private lessons, I have assisted with classes from elementary through high school level at various schools. I plan customized lessons and work with students individually to achieve goals.

Currently, I am on staff at Take Note Lessons in NYC.
