and I'm so happy you're here.
I'm a Voice, Performance & Growth Coach,
a professional singer, podcaster, & creative,
a wife and a mumma.
I'm whole-heartedly committed to
living a joyful and intentional life, pursuing my biggest and best self, visibly and right out loud,
and I'd love to help you do the same.
I recommend Sara to literally all of my clients, and she truly makes a night and day difference for them after they've seen her a few times.
I highly recommend Sara Ramsay as a
coach / mentor / voice instructor / positive force
for anyone at any level of their studies.
Her step-by-step method and ability to precisely assess what is and/or is not working for a singer, quickly led me towards achieving my vocal goals.
At heart, I'm a seeker.
I love to learn. I'm passionate about so many different things, and I love going down a good rabbit hole. As I head into a new era of being a mumma to adult children who no longer live at home, I have a different relationship with my time, and my capacity to invest myself into new things. I'm choosing to embrace it, and all the joy that comes with that learning process.
Yeah, basically I'm a nerd. My brain and I love it.
I come by it rightly, being the child of an educator (my mum), and someone who told people what to do - um...I mean talked - for a living (my dad.) But the truth is that I love the process of helping someone turn on the light where it was previously dark. I love the detective work of figuring out where the blocks are, and the creative process of navigating those blocks. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a student unlock a new skill, and the joy and pride in themselves that brings.
I love to sing, and I'm lucky enough to get paid to do what I love. As I've made my way through life, I have learned that my creativity does not only live in one house though. I love to sing, I love to write. I go through periods of loving crafting. I love to cook (some days.) In all honesty, I am starting to see the way creativity is woven into everything I do. I think that we all have that creativity glowing inside of us. It doesn't only come out through a paint brush or microphone... computer programmers, construction workers, Uber drivers...everyone can bring creativity into what they do. I feel extraordinarily lucky to be in a season of my life that allows me to really explore my creativity, and I couldn't be doing that without the unconditional support of my rock, my husband Steve.
...And I love to talk.
Small talk? Nope, not really interested.
Juicy BIG stuff? Let's. GO!
The fact that every report card I ever received read "Sara would do well if she could just apply herself, and stop chatting so much"...well, that's turned into a career path. Who knew?
This Big Life Podcast
What was I saying about being drawn to the big, juicy conversations? Well, that's true. So much so that we created a podcast about it. Co-hosted with my dear friend, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncturist, and Coach, Dr. Stefan Rabnett. We've known each other since the age of 13, and he's the godfather to one of my kids. So we've had a lot of years of talking about everything under the sun, and we both like to go deep. Now we're talking about the big things in life. But with microphones.

The Vocal Lab Podcast
This is a show where we aim to pull back the curtain on the music industry. Some episodes are me coming at you solo, talking about all things voice and performance. And some episodes are interviews with everyone an artist might interact with professionally throughout the course of their career - industry veterans talking about their careers, through the lens of "what I wish I'd known then, that would have made my career easier or better." If you're an emerging artist, this is your music industry primer.
