“Sarah models an incredible amount of passion for her instrument and music, and one cannot help but love the violin when studying with her!” Dora Lai

I love to share my passion for music! I teach all ages and levels. Though my teaching approach is classical, I also instruct my students in other genres such as folk, improvisation, and popular, based on interest. Please contact me for a consultation and for more information on my teaching philosophy.

“My son has been studying violin with Dr. Off for the past couple of years. She doesn’t just teach technique or musicality, she teaches so much more… she teaches life skills and she inspires him! She’s a wonderful teacher who cares so deeply about each one of her students and makes each one feel important.” Dora Lai

“Dr. Sarah Off trained my son on the violin through his high school years, guiding him through four concerto competitions, three all-state auditions, and three performances of the national anthem for Arizona Diamondbacks professional baseball games in front of more than 65,000 fans.  My son certainly could not have become the violinist he is today without her help.  Sarah Off was not just his teacher, but his mentor, performing alongside him during his senior concert.  His experience at her Mount Blanca Conservatory was stellar, and he would not have been selected to train at Interlochen without her; she was also there to celebrate with him when he was selected as the City of Phoenix Outstanding Young Man of the Year. Although he is now hundreds of miles away attending college at Brown University, he still plays regularly with Musicians on Call in Boston.  Because of Dr. Off, music will always be an integral part of his life.” Rebecca Feaster
