    I love songwriting with Sara! She elevates every song with a blend of her artistry and her classical and electronic soundscapes. She played so beautifully on the parts I asked for to help me get the sounds I was "hearing in my head" and into the song. And, she also wrote her own parts which I absolutely love! She is very friendly, patient, and the workflow with her is smooth and uncomplicated. Not only that, she helped me solve a timing issue on the song. I highly recommend her!

    Sara is an excellent session musician to work with! I needed piano and synthesizer parts to make a film soundtrack song complete and full sounding. The song was missing something. She solved that problem quickly with skilled proficiency! She wrote lovely, melodic, and contrasting parts that intuitively fit in the song. The workflow with her was uncomplicated, communication clear, and turnaround times quick. She always checked to see the direction she was going was right. I highly recommend her!
