"I had been singing for a while but wanted to expand my range. I am now a Mezzo Soprano and singing in a higher range that I never thought possible. Which are all thanks to Sarah's help and guidance? My previous teacher had not taught me even half of what Sarah has with regards to breathing and warm-up exercises. Sarah's lessons are fun, interesting and you learn so much. Sarah is a brilliant teacher. I'd thoroughly recommend her to everyone." - (Lesley-Ann Gibian)

"Sarah is an excellent teacher, she helps me to improve my singing by not just telling me tips on how to improve but guiding my ability during lessons; I learn better by being shown rather than being told. I feel I have improved immensely over the couple of lessons I have had with her; and will continue to go to Sarah for further lessons." - (Tara Dipple)

"Sarah’s positivity and clever utilisation of my daughter's strengths has ensured that my daughter wants to go to her lessons and is engaged during the lesson which has resulted in a significant improvement in her grade.” - (Helen Williams)

Beginners to Advanced

I offer my students the chance to take graded exams, as they can be a great way to mark your progress and they also give a real sense of achievement, but undertaking grades is certainly not compulsory. Indeed, many of my students simply learn to sing for their own enjoyment. The main focus of the lessons is to learn and enjoy what you do. Singing is a great way to relax and have fun for all ages!

So why not have a go! Get in touch today to arrange your first lesson, you never know what talent you may be hiding.
