Welcome

SusanCoates1I am a freelance Lyric Soprano soloist and teacher based in Chippenham, Wiltshire. I have enjoyed a varied career in both performance and music education.

As Artistic Director of Opera Sulis I perform as part of an ensemble of singers and as a soloist. I have a broad repertoire and enjoy singing as a guest soloist with choral societies, opera companies and for private events. My repertoire includes opera, sacred music, songs from the shows and jazz standards.

As an educator I work as a visiting singing teacher at St Mary’s School, Calne and Stonar School, Atworth both near to my home in Chippenham, where I have a private practise.  I also help students prepare for entry into higher education with audition preparation and personal statement coaching.  I am a full member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (FISM) and the Association of Teachers of Singing (AOTOS).
