Sarah Ann Wilson, M.A.
Vocals , Strings, Violin, Viola, Cello
Sarah Wilson found music at a very early age. She picked up the viola for the first time when she was 10 years old and studied privately under Susan Bearden. After landing her first lead role in her middle school’s production of the musical “Annie,” she began her classical voice training with Mr. Bruce Reynolds of The Music Room.
Actively involved in Orchestra, Choir, and Music Theater throughout her education, she went on to win a talent scholarship to attend Stetson University at 17 years of age. She honed her technical viola training under the direction of Dr. Jesus Alfonzo during both her undergraduate and graduate degrees. Her classical vocal training was overseen by Dr. Bobb Robinson and Dr. Kandie Smith.
While at Stetson University, Sarah was actively involved in the Stetson Women’s Chorale, an auditioned treble choir conducted by Dr. Andrew Larson. She acted as the Soprano section leader for numerous years in the choir, and traveled to Tennessee to perform at the National American Choral Directors Association conference in 2010. As a violist in the Stetson University Symphony Orchestra, she had the privilege of performing in Italy with conductor Anthony Hose. She is also a proud member of Sigma Alpha Iota, a professional Music Fraternity for Women, of which she was Stetson’s chapter President in 2010.
Her performance experience includes vocal jazz, Opera, musical theater, acting, and over 20 years of classical dance training. She was currently seen performing at The Little Theatre in New Smyrna Beach as the lead in “Into the Woods”. She has acted as a private clinician and music teacher for local school music programs in the Central Florida area over the last 7 years. In addition to her love of music, she is also a creative writer of children’s books, and holds a Master’s degree in English Literature. She is currently working for the Orlando Diocese as a Middle School Language Arts Teacher and Children’s Church Choir Director. When she is not in rehearsal she enjoys spending time with her new husband, Andrew and their 3 cats and 1 dog. Sarah is looking forward to expanding her passion for teaching and always aims to encourage and foster self-confidence and a love of music in her students. Sarah is now accepting new students on Wednesday and Thursday.
