Sarah is a violinist and mandolinist. She has been classically trained at the Conservatory of Annie Moses, where she is now a faculty member. Alongside her classical repertoire she has studied fiddle and improvisation skills extensively. For a few years at the Conservatory she has honed skills in arranging and composing her own music, which today she does regularly for the band “Felicity”.
As a student of the Annie Moses Summer Music Festival, she has performed on the stages of the Grand Ole Opry, Carnegie Hall, and the Bluegrass Underground. She was in the orchestra for the Annie Moses Band’s PBS show “The Art of the Love Song,” and she has recorded on several projects with the Nashville Praise Symphony, the Notgrass Company and the Great Smoky Mountain Association. Her first EP came out in 2016.
Sarah has taught at Peachtree Learning Center since 2012, and was excited to formally help organize Peachtree’s strings program in 2017. She is certified in the Annie Moses Method and in Suzuki through level 2. She believes that the pursuit of excellence in music is a powerful tool in the Kingdom of God that can give the young and old alike a platform for spreading the Gospel, and is enthusiastic about Peachtree’s vision of “Redeeming the Arts for the Glory of God.” Please visit her website sarahmerrittmusic.com.
