Bio

Singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist Sara Wheeler plays acoustic folk rock music. She grew up in Michigan and her first love was the trumpet. Sara started studying trumpet when she was nine years old. Her family had an old piano in their basement and Sara would find solitude by making chords and sounds on the piano. By the time she was 13 years old, she had already written her first song. Sara would often be found harmonizing with her sister or friends. Sara was self taught on piano, until making it her major instrument at Berklee College of Music in Boston. There she got up to speed quickly with her piano skills. While at Berklee she stated to also study guitar and voice. She leaned a lot from her dear friend Gavin Lurrsen who introduced her to alternate tunings on guitar. At 21, Sara moved to Japan and started to tour and travel the world making music. At that point guitar and voice became her focus. She has toured all over Japan and Europe multiple times. One of her highlights in her tours of Europe was getting the opportunity to record at Abby Road with 40 members of the London Symphony Orchestra backing her piano and voice. Her travels also took her to Nepal, India, Thailand and China.

Sara's voice is a gossamer soprano and has a celtic sound. Her song lyrics tell stories that take the listener on a journey. She uses Elixir Strings on all her acoustic guitars because they allow her to move more freely up and down the neck of her guitar.

Sara Wheeler believes in doing what you love and loving what you do. Her philosophy has allowed her to travel and play music in many parts of the world.  She is currently working on two exciting projects. She is finishing up a solo acoustic CD that will be released in summer 2018. Sara has also found success with her new children's music career in the band Little Groove. Little Groove debut CD titled Building Blocks is a Parents' Choice award winner and a NAPPA award winner. Sara Wheeler founded Little Groove - Music Education for Children in 2005. Little Groove has musically educated over 10,000 families in Boston and the New England area.

Children's Music

Sara Wheeler, mom of two, has been working with children of all age groups for over 15 years. After having her own children she realized that there was a lack of music programs in the Boston area that fit the developmental needs of infants and toddlers. She wanted to make a program that helped children develop better communication skills, trust, language and overall well being. Music, beats and tones can help a child in so many ways. Music is comforting, exciting, expressive, and fun. A child's brain is continuously developing and needs many different types of stimuli. Little Groove music classes incorporate sight, sound and touch. Music is a language of it's own that adds so much joy to the world and is something that an individual can engage in for their whole life. Sara Wheeler's classes are conducted in a live music setting. During the class teachers perform songs playing live instruments. These songs are fun, catchy and repetitive and help teach your child about his/her environment. Children interact at their own level. The classes also incorporate brightly colored instruments that your child can touch, feel and shake.
