Teacher Feature: Sarai Pluimer – Voice and Piano Instructor
Sarai Pluimer is a recent graduate from Vanguard University. Since then, she has been keeping busy teaching private voice and piano lessons. Her own private students have said she is very professional, encouraging, and provides a positive atmosphere for her private lessons. After just a few weeks teaching here at The Music Abode, her new students have similar feedback and are very happy with the relationship she is beginning to cultivate with her teaching abilities.
Throughout her time at Vanguard pursuing her Music Education and Vocal Performance degree, Sarai gained experience studying genres from Classical to Theater. She performed locally and internationally with their choral group and alongside another The Music Abode instructor, Jenny Payne.
While her main emphasis has been vocals, Sarai also grew up playing piano and was required to pass strict levels of testing in her major to qualify her to teach beginning and intermediate levels of piano. Also during this time, Sarai worked with other music studios developing her teaching methods and repertoire.
Sarai believes “music is a beautiful gift that allows us to express ourselves and is a universal language that unites people. I strive to remind my students that music is fun, allows them to be themselves and is refined through practice.”
Sarai plans to return to school this fall to begin working to obtain her teaching credential for multiple subjects and music to take her teaching abilities to the next level. Her commitment to her students and her encouraging nature is sure to build some wonderful musicians!
