Sarah B. Rose is a vocalist, pianist, composer and educator from Eugene, Oregon. She studied classical, musical theatre and jazz with Siri Vik and Vicki Brabham at Lane Community College before transferring to Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle to focus on jazz voice and composition. In Seattle she studied with jazz vocalist Johnaye Kendrick, pianist/composer Dawn Clement and pianist/composer Jovino Santos Neto. She has recently graduated cum laude from Cornish with a Bachelors of Music. Sarah is a jazz interpreter of the Great American songbook, but also has a passion for writing original material. She will be recording an album later this year. Rose has also won the Downbeat Music Award twice for “best pop/blues vocalist” of the year. When singing classically Rose loves exploring Coloratura Soprano repertoire, such as Bernstein’s “Glitter and be Gay” from Candide and Offenbach’s “The Doll Song” from The Tales of Hoffman. Sarah has also been studying the piano since she was young, and is fluent in both classical and jazz repertoire.
Rose wants to help students with their individual music goals, in a fun, supportive, and engaging environment. Sarah loves teaching many styles of music, including but not limited to, classical, jazz, pop, folk, and musical theatre. In addition to teaching, you can find Sarah often performing around town, at venues such as The Shedd and The Jazz Station.
“Her portamento phrasing is engaging, with the fluidity of a horn. She knows when to pause and create a dramatic moment in her solos. Sarah’s upper register sounds clear and vibrant and her stage demeanor is funny and engaging.”— Jovino Santos Neto
