I have been a student for the past 4 years. I have had lessons in vocal training in the past, but Sara Ramsay knows her stuff and instantly puts you at ease. She has given me different techniques to open up my voice and make my lower register stronger. She has made singing fun for me again. I can’t think of any other teacher that will let you sing in your pyjamas at 6:50am in the morning!

Thank you so much. The feedback was amazing regarding the band! The best feedback we’ve had for that event, ever. Rarely do people dance that much. I appreciate the extra song at the end of your last set.  We would like to book you for next year! I enjoyed meeting you and was blown away by your singing. I can’t say enough good things.

Sara Ramsay is hands down my first choice to vocal coach our artists. We have sent numerous artists to her for vocal training. Sara is great at teaching the building blocks that any singer needs for a successful career, both in terms of getting the most out of their voice, but also protecting their voice. I would recommend Sara for vocal coaching without hesitation.

Sara Ramsay is an incredible vocal teacher who saved my voice from impending permanent damage. Within a very short period of time, my voice had improved drastically under her instruction. Sara is a wonderful person, a wonderful teacher and singer, and an amazing person to work with. I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking for vocal instruction. You will be amazed by the improvements working with her will bring.

The band was well suited to the venue – they kept the guests on the dance floor with a great mixture of music. The band had a very good stage presence, they were engaged with the audience at all times.

Sara Ramsay changed everything I knew about being a singer.

Some of us in rock’n’roll can develop bad habits. But all of the usual stereotypes aside, it was my improper vocal technique that really set me back & limited my ability as a singer. It was a series of sessions with Sara that brought all of this to light for me. Through working with Sara, I was able to gain control of my voice in a comfortable place.

I can’t thank Sara enough for all she did for me in such a short time & I look forward to working with her again.

Sara is an amazing music and voice teacher. She always makes me feel comfortable and takes the time to explain techniques in an easy to understand manner. We always have lots of fun during our sessions and since movng away from Vancouver this past summer, I have been able to Skype with her for my lessons. I’m so glad I am able to keep up my lessons with her through Skype because I would hate to lose such a great teacher. Now that Sara has started, ‘The Studio’, I can also continue my guitar and piano lessons.

The energy they brought to the performance was tangible, and the talent, undeniable. The show was so captivating I stayed in touch and asked them to headline my next festival. They were a huge hit and an integral part of our event’s success!

Sara is an incredible teacher. Exploring the technical elements of singing with her has been a fun and informative journey. The warm, gentle and yet professional environment she has established for her lessons is a reliable weekly joy in my life. I owe her a lot of my career as a singer.  I would recommend her to anyone, ESPECIALLY, if you are self-conscious or sensitive about your voice.

I’ve been with Sara for three years now. I’ve had a handful of voice teachers in my life, but none of them were as effective as Sara Ramsay. She’s the first teacher I’ve had who has explained things thoroughly. Her ability to help me manipulate my voice even when she’s not in the same room with me is incredible. She’s careful, creative, hilarious and extremely talented, and my voice would not sound as improved as it does today without her! Sara is the best teacher I can honestly say I have EVER had!

The Ticket is Vancouver’s newest and most exciting dance band to hit the lower mainland in a long time! The two stunning and vocally-gifted female singers have a wonderful dynamic on stage and their song-list is the perfect mix of new and old. Hire these guys and guaranteed you will not be disappointed!

In these days of portable studios and digital wizardry, everyone’s a recording artist! My “in-box” is over-flowing with song demos, each of them meticulously quantized, sampled and auto-tuned. Regrettably, many of these recordings have no creative merit whatsoever.

Imagine if someone came along who could really sing!

Enter Sara Ramsay, a gifted vocalist with a warmth and maturity that is rarely heard. Unlike some of the demos on my desk, Sara didn’t decide to be a singer yesterday. She’s been singing her entire life, which is about how long I’ve known her.

I’ve been fortunate to have worked with some wonderful singers over the years, including Tina Turner, Bonnie Raitt and Ann Wilson. In my opinion Sara is in the same league.

Singing lessons with Sara Ramsay have really helped my confidence level in singing, and helped me grow as a singer. She was able to catch certain bad habits I had, and we worked together to overcome them. I will continue to work with her to continue to better my vocal talent.

Great band! I booked them for our Hockey Fundraiser, they had everyone dancing all night! Great repertoire of songs, the girls rocked and the band was amazing! We reached our fundraising goal and The Ticket had a big part of it! People are still talking about the band! Thanks “The Ticket” !!  We will book you again!

You have seriously changed my life. Singing is finally fun again because I know how to hit notes and not hurt myself. I’m not there yet, but I can feel my voice strengthening. Thank you so much Sara.

I saw THE TICKET on their first night and holy cr**p, they were good!! Five first class singers in one band! Great entertainers too. Lots of rhythmn and dance tunes. People just got up on the floor and did their thing, they were lovin’ it!

I’ve known Sara since she was a little girl doing voice overs at GGRP but her talent didn’t stop there.

When I have a client that seems to be struggling a bit with their singing I send them to Sara for a little help. She is so amazing with them, and in a short while you see a vast improvement in their control and power. The thing I like best about Sara is she doesn’t try to change how they sing, she works with the singer’s style and helps them discover where their vocal control comes from.

Every client I’ve sent her loves her friendly approach and quick results.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.  Thank you Sara!

I have been singing for my entire life, but not until recently have I been singing properly and beginning to like my voice. This is because of Sara Ramsay‘s amazing technique and expertise. Never have I had a teacher with such patience, understanding, talent, and true love of music and musical education. Even though we have only been having lessons for a few months, I have noticed huge improvements in myself, and I have her to thank. To anyone who is hesitant to begin lessons with Sara, don’t be! It was one of the best decisions I have made and I am sure it will be for you too! Thank you for everything, Sara!

Saw THE TICKET on opening night at Lulu’s Lounge in the River Rock casino. They knocked it out of the park with a variety of new and old performed flawlessly. Sara and Saffron are superb singers – in fact, everyone in this talented band sings. It was feel good time all night. The audience was on its feet dancing from the moment they started playing.

My daughter has been taking online singing lessons with Sara for more than a year and it has been a fabulous experience.  Sara is a great technical teacher as well as an inspiring and supportive coach.

I have been lucky enough to have been taking voice lessons from Sara Ramsay for almost four years now. The very first thing she taught me is that no matter what, I should never feel like I’m being judged. She is supportive, offers constructive criticism and explains things with visuals that make it easy to grasp what she is suggesting. She clearly has a passion for music and singing, and is more than willing to share her experiences with her students. Her lessons are light-hearted and I always look forward to them.

..incredible voices, great variety of songs and sexy costume changes….THE TICKET is an amazing band, fun to dance with, fun to watch! I am looking forward to seeing them again!

Sara did a great job designing the social media campaign for my book, ‘Is This Live?’, about the early years of MuchMusic. She helped me find my target audience, including 8000 plus people on Facebook, and guided me throughout the campaign to keep growing the community of would-be book buyers. She is also a pleasure to work with and I’d work with her again in the future anytime!

When your child has a talent, as a parent you want to nurture it. Unless it is a talent you share or excel at, you must then put your child in the hands of an expert. What my daughter has learned in her short time with Sara is amazing. She is excited to practice and is now always looking to broaden her knowledge of music and song. When I sent my daughter to Sara for lessons I knew she would get a stellar education but what I did not foresee was the changes in my daughter. She is now more confident not just about her singing but in herself. I cannot thank Sara enough for how she continues to help my daughter.

I think I’ve seen every wedding band in Vancouver, and these guys are my new faves!  So much fun. We danced all night. They played all our favourite songs – I don’t think we sat down once! Great singers, great harmonies, great players. Can’t wait for next time.
