Vocal Coaching

I have taught in a variety of schools and I am currently employed as a visiting singing teacher at Stonar School, Atworth and St Mary’s School, Calne.

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.

Graded Examinations

I prepare my students for all performance related aspects of GCSE and A level Music. I follow all syllabuses for:

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.
