I'm Sara Campbell, piano and voice teacher living in Western
Pennsylvania. A full-time teacher since 2005, my goal is to help
students develop creativity, music literacy, community engagement, and a
life-long love of music.
Outside of the studio, I've been an
adjunct lecturer and guest speaker at universities and music
conferences. I've got a passion for helping other teachers realize their
goals, and you can frequently find me on teacher forums like the
Upbeat Piano Teacher Book Club and the Voice Teachers' Community!

Hi, I'm Tracy Selle. A Christian wife, mom, piano teachers, and author of 101 Piano Practice Tips.
I've been teaching piano for nearly 15 years and I've served as the
pianist of several churches. I'm also a former TV meteorologist. What?
Yes! It's actually an important part of
my background because it helped me create The Upbeat Piano Teacher
Webinars. It's the perfect way for me to merge my 2 loves: teaching
piano and working in television. My goal is to inspire other piano teachers and hopefully their enthusiasm will impact students across the globe!
In my spare time, I love to read, crochet, and hike with my family. I'm also a Virginia Tech graduate and an advocate for Type 1 Diabetes. My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in March 2010.
