Sarah is proud to say that she's performed her own arrangements everywhere from the MGM Grand Garden Arena to the Super Bowl LVIII Team Owners' Party, and she promises that you will love them too!

"I think your arrangements are superior to the vast majority I've crossed paths with over the years. They're clearly written by a string player, and one who cares about each line in the counterpoint and the experience of each actual player...which, IMHO, is critical for the resultant performance. Smart texture, logical foreground vs. background, strategically and generously trading melodies...not merely exploding out the piano-vocal score like too many hacks tend to do. It's good stuff!" - Sean Bradley, Concert Talent

"The thing I really love about your arrangements is that they are so easy to put together in my groups. They are easily playable for most musicians with whom I work, yet the arrangements themselves sound far more interesting & intricate when we put all the parts together. We can easily cover a 2-hour wedding gig without needing hours & hours of rehearsal when we use your arrangements. It's SO awesome and convenient!" - Trish
