Sarah Devoyon started her cello studies at the Espoo Music Institute with a 5-year-old’s bright
twinkle in her eye. After 12 years of studies there, she then continued her journey at the Music
Education department of the Sibelius Academy. She got her Bachelor’s Degree in 2017 and will get
her Master’s Degree in the fall of 2021. In addition to her Music Education studies, she also performed her
Master’s recital in cello in the spring of 2019.
Sarah is also an active musician in various groups and orchestras. She takes part playing the cello
(acoustic and electric), piano or guitar, singing and also providing arrangements if necessary. She
also plays the bass and drums and has had lessons in viola and clarinet.
As a teacher, Sarah has taught cello in the Espoo Music Institute and is currently also teaching at
the Vantaa Music Institute’s Sistema Tempo-orchestras. She bases her teachings on her students’
interests and often uses mental images to support the understanding of different playing
techniques. In her free time she likes to make arrangements for various groups (particularly
multiple cellos), go on long walks, play Harry Potter games on her Playstation 2 and hang out with
her little bunny, Pietari (Peter).
Sarah teaches cello in Finnish, English, and French at ISM Finland. To book a trial lesson with Sarah, please get in touch.
