Sarah Kumengi, Voice and Early Childhood Music Teacher

Sarah is originally from Cleveland, Ohio where she studied music education at the Baldwin-Wallace University Conservatory of Music. Job opportunities brought her and her husband down to Austin 14 years ago. Sarah spent her first 6 years here teaching K-5 elementary general music in Georgetown ISD. In addition to her daily general music classes, she conducted an after school choir, percussion and recorder ensembles. She was humbled and honored by her colleagues with the Jo Ann Ford Elementary Teacher of the Year distinction in 2010. Sarah spent two summers at Trinity University earning her Level I and II certificates in Orff-Schulwerk Music and Movement Education.

As an artist, Sarah spent a number of years at the Georgetown Palace Theater as a performer and vocal director for numerous musicals. In addition, she was a frequent featured soloist with the Round Rock Community Choir, was invited to perform the National Anthem for the Round Rock Express and earned a B. Iden Payne nomination for her role as Lucy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown with the Second Youth Family Theater in Austin. When she and her husband decided to start a family, she took 8 years off from performing and teaching to raise her three beautiful children.

Sarah is thrilled to be joining the Sense & Color team, teaching voice lessons and spearheading the new Music in Me early childhood music and movement program for children birth to 5 years old. She is extremely passionate about music in the earliest years of development and hopes this program will encourage many tuneful, beatful, artful future musicians!
