Always Aspiring, Always Inspiring


Sarah Ramson
My name is Sarah Ramson and I am 11 years old. I started learning music before I was 3 and currently play songs on 6 instruments; Harp, Piano, Flute, Tenor Steel Pan, Guitar and the Ukulele.

I am a home-school student (5th Grade) and music is a major part of my lesson plan. My remaining curriculum consists of studying Ballet at the Kirov Academy of Ballet, Kumon Math (Algebra 2) and Reading, Chess, Mandarin and an online home-school program to include Language Arts, Civics, Science and History. 

I also play competitive Golf and recently competed in the 2019 US Kids World Golf Championship, finishing the summer with my best score being 83 on 18 holes from 4400yds. My past golf accomplishments consist of two Eagles from 56 and 74 yards as well as competing in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 US Kids World Golf Championship in Pinehurst, NC. I also advanced to the 3rd round of the 2017 and 2019 PGA Drive, Chip and Putt contest. 

I am also a Chess player (rated 1083, halfway to expert level) and periodically play in National Tournaments. At 5yrs old, I placed 3rd at the 2013 Chess Nationals in Florida and at 8yrs old, I placed 16th out of 147 competitors (winning 5 out of 7 or my games) at the 2017 Chess Super Nationals in Tennessee. Most recently, I won the under 10 Mid-Atlantic Regional All Girls Tournament and I am ranked nationally at 64 percentiles of all Chess players, at 78 percentiles among Juniors and at 83 percentiles for Female Chess Players...top 10 Female in Washington, DC.

This past June (2019), I earned my Black Belt in Martial Arts and now enjoy teaching the Art to my peers. My other activities include Ice Skating, Gymnastics, Swimming and Archery. I really enjoy reading, riding my bike, building my Lego projects, playing with my American Girl dolls and most of all, hanging out with my friends. My favorite book series are American Girl, The Vanderbeekers, Pippi Longstocking, Sugar Plum Ballerinas and Geronimo Stilton! Of everything above, my favorite things to do are hanging out with my friends, Ballet, Ice Skating and Reading. 

My goals for now are to be a Classical Harpist, Pianist and play lots of instruments. My ultimate goal is to be a Prima Ballerina and eventually, a Supreme Court Judge!
