About Me

My name is Sarah Genthner and I just completed my Junior year of college, where I am studying Neuroscience and Music. I am particularly interested in the psychology and perception of music, and I believe that the combination of these two studies is an exciting field that I cannot wait to explore!

Fun Fact
I have been playing violin for 15 years this September. I also am self taught in guitar and ukulele, and have been in the process of learning to play the cello this past year. My next goal is to become proficient in playing piano. I have performed and taught for many different groups and occasions.
Passion
The psychology of music, specifically how one learns the fine motor movements associated with learning and instrument and learning different pieces of music. Additionally, looking at the psychology of improvisation is something I am newly interested in.
