Sarah Frugé, classically trained musician and native of East Texas, is in her thirteenth year as a music educator, with experience teaching preschool through 12th grade. Sarah holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from East Texas Baptist University, where she graduated with honors, in 2004. Currently, she teaches general music classes to K-2nd grade students and choir to 3rd-5th grade students at Cumberland Academy.
Sarah believes singing is the foundation for good musicianship and that children can play anything they can sing. So, she finds teaching elementary students how to find their singing voice and how to recognize and produce pitches and rhythms very rewarding! She has a passion for teaching music literacy which can open up life-long, fulfilling opportunities for students.
Sarah incorporates the Kodaly method into her teaching and has attended training at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention, in San Antonio, since 2003.
Sarah had very patient music teachers who encouraged her to reach her potential, and she hopes to provide the same inspiration to her students!
Sarah and her husband, John, of 16 years reside in Longview, TX with their two sons, Ryan, 12 and Drew, 9 and their Alaskan malamute show dogs, Major and Treasure.
