WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
"Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong. "
– Ella Fitzgerald
All throughout middle school and high school, Sydney had the absolute honor and pleasure of singing with Lynn! Working with Lynn gave Sydney confidence, drive, stage presence, and improved her vocal skills dramatically. Sydney had performed in numerous musicals in Marin County, and has been a part of the Narada Michael Walden Holiday Jam for five years! After Lynn introduced her to Narada, Sydney also had the honor of recording a song with him, and ultimately, filming a music video. Her song is entitled Love is Stronger than Smoke and Fire. Her song was dedicated to the California Wildfire Victims in 2017, and ultimately raised $15,000 to help the victims through the Red Cross. In 2017 Sydney won Narada’s “Best New Artist” award. Singing is one of Sydney’s favorite hobbies, though her passion lies in law and politics. Now, Sydney is a student at the University of Southern California majoring in Political Science and minoring in Legal Studies. Sydney works as an Administrative Coordinator at the USC Center for the Political Future, and is the youngest member serving on the Executive Board of the USC Moot Court team, ranked Third in the Nation.

Jasmine M. Sagebiel
My name is Jasmine M. Sagebiel, also known as Jazz Sage. I was a student of Lynn Asher's on my journey to applying for Berklee College of Music.
When I was accepted to this prestigious school, I was so grateful to have received a full-scholarship thanks to Lynn's multi-faceted training techniques.
I majored in Songwriting and minored in English Literature. I studied jazz vocals and band production during this process. I graduated in three years and quickly came home to finish my AA degrees in Psychology and Anthropology.
Now I am on route to completing a Master's in Wildlife Management/Zoology in order to later pursue a PhD in Ethnomusicology to further understand the musical communication differences in humans and animals.
When I am not studying for my graduate degrees, I am playing monthly jazz shows as a solo vocal/pianist for Jazz Nights at the Divino Osteria Restaurant in Sausalito, CA as well as recording my original material.
Thanks to Lynn, I feel supported both in my vocal abilities and confidence to move forward in high volumes.
