About me - Sarah Masters
My earliest musical memory is of my reception class teacher who used to play guitar to us and sing. She encouraged me to play the recorder and that was the beginning of my love for music.
I started to play the violin when I was 7 years old and the guitar at 8. I played in school orchestras & sang in school choirs throughout my school life, and I played for the Walsall Youth Orchestra and Walsall Symphony Orchestra.
I went on to study pop music and music production at college and then to university to study a degree in Music Technology. My final year project was based around how music technology can be used to help children with physical and learning disabilities make music. Through this I became involved with a couple of music technology
projects in Walsall and at Birmingham Symphony Hall using all kinds of musical instruments and technology to help children with a variety of disabilities to create music.
Through this work, I became aware of Early Years Music and spent the next 2 or 3 years on various training courses. I instantly fell in love with the idea of bringing live music to the smallest of children and in 2010, while on maternity leave with my son, I , alongside my lifetime friend, Emma Jones, created Rainbow Rhyme.
Alongside Rainbow Rhyme, I also teach violin, guitar & ukulele and in recent times, have become the Musical Director of The Howling Wolves Community Choir. I am a Natural Voice Practitioner which goes hand in hand with the whole ethos that founded Rainbow Rhyme, that we are all musical, we all have a voice and we should not be afraid to use it and learn to love it!
Alongside singing and music I also enjoy crocheting, cycling, walks in the countryside and spending time with my wonderful family.
