Sarah Grace Sharp, choir teacher at Williamson County Schools, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in music education.
Having recently begun her career as an educator, Ms. Sharp is a rising expert in the field of music education. Since 2020, she has served as a choir teacher at the Williamson County Schools in Tennessee. Specializing in vocal coaching and music literacy, she teaches three choir classes, one per grade level, at her school. Ms. Sharp began her career in 2019 working with the Sumner County Schools, originally joining as an interim choir teacher and subsequently working as an elementary music teacher until 2020.
From an early age, Ms. Sharp gravitated towards a career in music education, having been inspired by one of her own teachers, who inspired her to think about music in a more complex manner. To wit, her teacher exposed her to a great deal of classical music, which she deeply enjoyed, and had her write down her feelings and thoughts pertaining to these pieces. She subsequently discovered the unique storytelling capabilities of music, and she wanted to share this with other students. Ms. Sharp has adopted many of these practices as a teacher, having students write about music and connect it to various pieces of literature prior to explaining what the songs are about, which she finds is immensely gratifying for them.
Prior to embarking on her vocational journey, Ms. Sharp pursued a formal education. Studying at Lipscomb University from 2014 to 2018, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in music education for vocal and general music. In addition to her academic credentials, she has received her teaching license from the Tennessee Department of Education in 2018. As part of her professional dedication, Ms. Sharp also maintains her membership with several industry-related organizations, including the National Association for Music Education, the Tennessee Music Education Association and the Tennessee Education Association.
Outside of her primary profession, Ms. Sharp is also actively involved in the music ministry at the West End United Methodist Church in Nashville, Tennessee. Having already cultivated a wealth of valuable experience in the field, she attributes much of her success to her mentors and teachers, who have taught her many meaningful methods of teaching and bolstered her passion for music. Furthermore, she has learned to become more flexible as a teacher during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the coming years, Ms. Sharp looks forward to continuing her career as an educator, and she hopes to pursue a master’s degree and a doctorate.
