Sarah Wagstaff has a BS degree from Weber State University. She majored in Psychology, with dual minors in history and music. She completed my secondary education teaching certificate.

She’s taught flute students for the past twenty years. She now also teaching piano and voice. She’s taken lessons on multiple instruments including, flute, piano, voice, bass clarinet, violin and guitar, so she knows what it’s like to be a beginner.

Sarah Wagstaff is very logical and understand how music works. She likes to explain music theory to her students as it relates to the music that they are working on.

She started playing flute in the public school band in fifth grade. She had her first teacher in ninth grade after she already had years of bad habits to correct. She teaches her flute students to have a good foundation, so that they will be able to play well from the beginning and so that they’ll be prepared for more advanced pieces later on.

Sarah Wagstaff believes that sharing music with others is important and she requires her students to play in recitals. She is an active member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA), Music Teacher National Association (MTNA) and her local Austin District Music Teacher’s Association (ADMTA).

She has served as president of Suzuki Association of Utah, attended one of the SAA national conventions(Minneapolis) and one of their leadership retreats (Denver.)

She has also completed several of the SAA Teacher Training courses offered for flute teachers.

She helped plan five of the SAU’s Celebration Concerts and have written many articles for the SAU’s Newsletter.

She has taught many transfer students who started in band or came from other teachers. She also works with beginners, young or old. If you’ve thought of taking flute lessons, there’s no time like the present. She is currently accepting new students.
