Educational Commitment:

Sandy has been a sought-after vocal coach and piano teacher for over three decades. She also shares the love and joy of music with her children's choir. Originally started by Sandy fifteen years ago, this wonderful little choir, ages 6 to 13 continues to grow. "We're squeezing the statues off the alter" says Sasso. She adds that "it is such a great feeling to see these young ones raising their voices in a spiritual setting."

For a limited time, Sandy is offering private lessons - click here for more info...

About Sandy:

"I never thought about doing anything else. I always knew my life would be about singing and performing in some way. While my girlfriends played with their dolls, I was busy working the imaginary audience behind my mirror".

When she started piano lessons at age 6, Sandy's lifelong partnership with music began to form. She remembers that at the age of 12 she heard Brubeck's "Take Five". "For me that was 'the' moment. I found the music so intriguing. It was like nothing I had ever heard. Don't get me wrong, I was just a kid and I loved my rock and roll, but I managed to listen to jazz whenever it was around". Sandy ultimately chose the classical route for training in voice and piano, at the prestigious Westminster Choir College in Princeton as a voice major/piano minor, but left the coziness of those hallowed halls after a few years. She decided to hit the clubs and begin to practice her craft, her way. She never looked back. She ultimately did receive her BA, (graduating Magna Cum Laude).

Sandy sings with and for the best in the business. Jazz legends, presidents, entertainment giants, and some of the best road bands traveling today. As a young woman, she had a chance audition and started working with a local big band. This eventually opened the doors to steady work with the Dorsey, Goodman, Riddle and Pops big bands.

Sandy tours world-wide, while keeping her performance base in New York City, with everything from small jazz combos to 17 piece big bands. Sandy Sasso is one of the busiest singers in the business.
