I have trained with a number of notable singing teachers and repetiteurs, including Cynthia Glover, Mollie Petrie, Alison Mary Sutton, Penelope Price-Jones, Rosalind Plowright OBE, Simon Phillippo and Rosa Mannion.
I also teach piano from beginners to more advanced grades or simply for fun.
I prepare my students for all performance related aspects of GCSE and A level Music. I follow all syllabuses for:

Many of my pupils progress to Stage School and Music College. I offer preparation sessions for auditions, concentrating on performance technique, breathing and relaxation methods, and advice on the best repertoire for the candidate.
I offer flexible hour or half-hour sessions at the following rates:
- Coronavirus Skype rate – £30 per hour / £15 per half hour. Book 4 lessons in advance and receive a further 10% discount during the Coronavirus crisis.
- Graded Examinations –£35/hour (pro rata from Sept 2019)
- Audition Preparation – £40/hour (pro rata from Sept 2019)
It wasn’t until I started singing lessons with Susan that my confidence really grew. Not only did I have lots of fun learning all the songs from the shows, I also achieved distinction in Grade 8 Musical Theatre. Thank you for everything.

Mrs Sharp, Susan, you are such a wonderful teacher and such a positive person towards my singing. Thank you so much for helping me achieve my goal of a place at music college. I will be continuing my lessons with you during the holidays.
