LIOVALY PIANO STUDIO
Dedicated to pursuing musical excellence and artistry,
we strive to share our passion for piano with each student.
Sarah Marlett started playing piano at age eight. The diligent tutelage of her first teacher, Janet Russell, fostered Sarah's musical ability and personal motivation.
In 2008, Sarah began studying with Branislav Radakovic, focusing on delicacy of touch, expression and performance.
Sarah's pedagogical approach for piano focuses on tailoring music choices to match each student's interests. A student's motivation is encouraged by playing songs that they truly enjoy. Piano should always be engaging even while practicing tough passages.
Sarah especially loves to play Frédéric Chopin, but also enjoys Bach, Beethoven, and Satie.
Sarah also enjoys playing organ, after being first introduced to the exquisite organ of over 3,500 pipes at the St. Mary's College of California Chapel. While attending St. Mary's, she received instruction from the resident organist, Br. Martin Yribarren, F.S.C.
Sarah Marlett plays organ for St. Michael's Church in Livermore and St. Monica's Church in Moraga.
