Kevin Thraves Dip RCM (Hons) ARCM (Hons) Senior Lecturer Opera Music Staff, School of Vocal and Opera Studies, Royal Northern College of Music

"I have known Sarah Rhodes personally and professionally for a number of years. My operatic collaboration with her began when we worked together at Scottish Opera (a company she has had close links with over many years and for whom she has sung a variety of roles). She has vast experience as a singer, both on the international operatic stage and the recital platform and continues to enjoy a successful performing career alongside her teaching commitments.

She has proven her capabilities as an excellent voice teacher with many of her students entering UK Conservatoires both at undergraduate and postgraduate level with many of those students continuing to have successful singing careers themselves.

I have found Sarah to be a musician and singer of great intelligence with a firm understanding of vocal technique and an ability to deliver information to students in a precise and uncomplicated manner.

I would highly recommend Sarah Rhodes as an excellent choice as your voice teacher."
