I am a professional musician and educator based in the Niagara Region. I am passionate about instilling confidence in my students through music. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Performance with a specialization in Jazz Voice from the University of Toronto.
I have over five years experience as a music educator teaching both privately and at the Long & McQuade Music Lesson Centre. In the summer of 2018 and 2019, I had the opportunity to teach Ukulele and Vocal for the Niagara Symphony Orchestra’s Summer Music Camp. As an educator, I believe that it is important to focus on students’ goals while developing the skills necessary to be a well-rounded musician.
In addition to being an educator, I am an active professional vocalist with over ten years of performance experience. In 2016, I released my debut EP titled 'Take Me Back' which blends various elements from the Jazz, R&B and Pop idioms.
"Sammy has worked with my youngest daughter for 4 years as a vocal coach. Her skill and patience had helped my daughter realize her vocal potential, moreover Sammy has helped build her confidence. Because of her knowledge and understanding of children and music, Sammy knew the right time to introduce piano to my daughter as well. She is now working on accompanying herself as she sings. I am grateful she had Sammy as her music coach." -- Michele Downes, Parent
