About Sara Leib
Sara Leib is probably best known as a jazz singer. As a performer, Leib has worked with some of the biggest names in the jazz genre, and has toured all over the world. A natural improviser, Sara began singing seriously when she was in high school, attending a performing arts magnet and singing in every school choir group she could. After narrowly being accepted into her high school’s vocal jazz choir when another student dropped out, Sara found that she had a natural affinity for improvisation, and decided to take her study of the genre further, and attended the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. After graduating from college, Sara moved back to her hometown of Los Angeles, touring with her own jazz band, working as a session singer, and teaching. She later found her real passion for teaching when she received a graduate teaching assistantship at the University of Southern California.
Since then, Sara has taught private voice lessons, ensembles, vocal improvisation, and workshops at the University of Southern California, World Mission University, and Musicians Institute in Hollywood (for which she co-wrote the Vocal Performance curriculum, levels 1-3). Sara is currently on the faculty at Los Angeles Music Academy College of Music. She has toured and taught all over the country and the world, from New Zealand, South Africa, and Nepal to New York City, California, and Guatemala. Sara loves bringing her passion to you, and has decided to make SingingTV.com a place where anyone can come from anywhere in the world for free content on singing, how to sing, interviews, musings, and all sorts of things pertaining to singing and the voice.
Sara currently lives in Los Angeles where she sings, teaches, and writes. As a studio and session singer Sara has sung for the WB, Hum Music, the N Network, the NBA, and on the Academy Awards. Sara subscribes to the idea that a musician should strive to be an artist, teacher and a scholar, and she attempts to learn something new every day. She has given master classes and workshops in jazz vocal improvisation internationally, twice served as a panelist for the NARAS Foundation’s Grammy In The Schools, and can currently be heard as the voice of an airing Coffeemate commercial. Critically acclaimed, The Boston Herald has said Sara “offers a fresh approach to jazz vocal classicism and the Boston Globe says she’s “got a beautiful, natural voice”. Leib holds degrees from the Berklee College of Music, the New England Conservatory of Music, and the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music. She is also a certified teacher of Somatic Voicework™, the LoVetri method, a science-based pedagogy training, directed by Jeanette LoVetri. Sara is thoughtful and energetic, and loves to bring her passion to you through Singing TV. A self-confessed music nerd and an avid foodie, in her spare time Sara enjoys food, wine, travel, and collecting tribal art. Sara particularly adores Thai food, Boggle, and modern architecture, and has a really cool collection of ethnic masks from around the world. Sara is proud to be an advisory board of the Crescendo Young Musicians Guild, a non-profit music education and community service organization that provides quality music instruction, mentoring, and performance opportunities to students who may otherwise not have them.
