Experienced professional Violinist/Composer offering Violin and Composition lessons in Asheville for all ages and abilities

Methodology

I believe that even the most complex techniques can be made intuitive, and that developing a good ear is essential to making true progress. My focus is on enabling students to know instinctually what needs to be adjusted, and on understanding how everything fits together. I also believe that regular practice can be made approachable and fun, even when it is difficult.

Background

Sarah Platt is an experienced violinist, composer, and teacher based in Asheville, North Carolina. After discovering her passion for writing and playing music through a high school music theory course, she went on to study both violin and composition at Georgia State University. There she studied violin with Tania Maxwell-Clements, and composition with Dr. Robert Scott Thompson before graduating in 2020. As a composer, she combines minimalist textures and ideas with neoromantic thematic material to create an impressionistic and programmatic style. As a teacher, Sarah maintains a studio of both adults and children at all levels of proficiency. Sarah's core principles of teaching are parental involvement, aural skills, and critical listening and interpretation. Additionally, Sarah enjoys performing and volunteering for non-profit and community orchestras. She has performed with the Atlanta Philharmonic Orchestra, the Atlanta Musicians Orchestra, and the Georgia State University Symphony Orchestra.
