I love teaching and help kids become better at their passion. I still carry what my mentors have taught me over the years and it has not only helped me with my music but also through life. I want to be that person and pass it on. My teaching is different with each student since each person is different and has different needs.
Whether it's a focus on taking lessons to move forward and wanting a career or taking the lessons simply based on love for music; I know how to make the lesson valuable to anybody. I believe challenges in any passion will help you become a stronger person and teach you to overcome anything.
Through music I watch kids become braver, more confident, better team mates, finding what they want and last but not least nothing beats the pride they start to show moving forward after a concert, finishing a book, learning a hard song, writing their own material and learning an instrument.
This is why I teach.
Sabrina Petrini's journey began in Helsingborg, Sweden where she owned and ran a dance school at the age of 16. During that time she attended the theater high school, managed to write, direct and produce a musical by the time she was 19 and performed her original music in different talent competitions and festivals around Europe.
She relocated to London in 2007 and earned a degree in vocals and production at the London Center of Contemporary Music college. Later on she moved to Los Angeles and earned another degree in vocals and performance at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood.
Los Angeles became her home. One of her first shows was at the main stage of House Of Blues at the Sunset strip. A month after that she signed a record deal and began recording with B.A.M and UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP. Her success continued by having the music video for her song "U MAKE ME (LOL)" airing on MTV, VH1 and LOGO TV. She was nominated for best pop artist at LA MUSIC Awards and best pop song at HMMA Awards. Her first album release show was at Palladium in Hollywood for 4.000 people but that was nothing compared to the biggest performance of her life, the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS 2010.
It was after meeting and working with Kim Fowley (Joan Jett, GNR) and Noizee (Marky Ramone) at the end of 2011 that inspired Sabrina to become an independent artist. She left her record deal and manager to DIY and shortly ended up back in the studio experimenting with melodic European and edgy American sounds. She put a band together and named it KingQueen after her “stage-name”. She started co writing with her guitar player Dario Comuzzi. Rehearsals turned into songs and songs turned into their album "GET LOUD". They recorded the album on to a tape machine in a little studio in Norco, CA and the music was mixed and mastered in Italy by Frank Nemola (Vasco Rossi). In 2013 KingQueen won LA's Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands, (ended up in the finals, top 10 of the world wide battle out of 22,000 bands) and performed at Universal City Walk. Besides touring the U.S and opening for Steel Panther, KingQueen continuously played and packed many legendary venues around Los Angeles, CA such as House Of Blues, Whiskey a Go Go, Viper Room and The Roxy. They also had two nominations for best pop and rock song with “Rockstar” and “Chemically Imbalanced” at HMMA Awards.
In 2014 Sabrina Petrini earned endorsement deals with her favorite companies Mogami Cable and Audio Technica and became an artist at Roland US. She also became a voting member of the Grammy Academy and started collaborating with Italian DJ/Producer Dechard. Their first single “F*cking In Love” was released February 2015 and had 22,103 hits after less than a week on SoundCloud. She became a VEVO artist and released a music video for “F*cking In Love” early May which also got a nomination for best pop at HMMA Awards and was up for consideration for a Grammy Nomination for best pop duo. Sabrina and Dechard’s second single “Fade Away” won an Akademia Award in September 2015 for best dance/pop song and won 'video of the year' at IndieNation Music Awards 2016 and was aired on OITN TV. The song is also in the ad for Martian Watches music control.
Sabrina’s solo album “I Will. I Can. I Am.” was released June 4th 2016 and had it’s release party at a sold out Avalon, Hollywood. She had a strong collaboration with producer Gabe Lopez (James Brown, Belinda Carlisle, Universal), K.Chozen (Big Sean, Katy Perry), Ruifu Wang (Monkey Buisness Productions), James Krausse (Beyonce, Nick Jonas) and Dechard. Her audience can hear a focus on Sabrina’s strong and edgy vocals taking a pop/electronic/urban direction and lyrics with a message. Her songs were played at NBC KCAA, Independent FM and her music video for “I Will. I Can. I Am.” was aired and released on MTV and VEVO. Mogami Cable also posted a video of Sabrina performing a live in studio version of her song “So Romantic” representing their cables. She can be seen on an episode of KVVB TV where she also performed her song “So Romantic”. Her song “Know Your Worth” is one of the soundtracks in the feature film “Love Is All You Need” starring Briana Evian, Jeremy Sisto and Tyler Blackburn directed by Rocco Shields and has been seen at all major movie festivals around the U.S and Cannes film festival and premiered at the Arclight in Los Angeles. The movie won numerous awards and was released on iTunes November 2016. Sabrina Petrini did a mini club tour in SoCal for her album during summer/fall of 2016. She is currently in the studio recording a mini EP to be released fall 2017. Until then you can catch her live playing monthly shows promoting her album and upcoming music.
