Sarah Beland has been teaching at West Music since 2005. She also taught at Graceland University and Culver-Stockton College as an adjunct flute instructor. Sarah first started playing piano when she was 9 years old and began flute a couple years later. She holds a Master of Arts degree in Flute Performance from the University of Iowa and a Bachelor of Music degree in Flute Performance from Wartburg College.
When she’s not teaching, she’s busy being a mom to my two wonderful kids and volunteering at my church. While a student at Wartburg College she was lucky enough to perform in Carnegie Hall with the Wind Ensemble, as well as perform in a month-long European tour. She loves spending time with my husband, kids and friends. I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and live music and theatre. She loves getting to see her students grow up and progress over the years. She hopes that music will always be a part of their lives.
