"I have been a member of several choirs for over 30 years but always wanted to improve my singing. After looking for some time for a suitable teacher, I count myself extremely lucky to have found Sarah, who agreed to help me 'explore my voice'.

Sarah is a gifted musician who manages to inspire confidence and enjoyment in her students in equal measure. But her consummate skill as a teacher arises from the fact that she is able to articulate vocal techniques in the form of everyday actions; that she is able to demonstrate exactly what she requires; and most importantly, that, having been a professional singer all her adult life, she has a vast knowledge and experience of performing that she is keen to share. In the six months that I have been with her my voice has improved significantly and I can now reach notes I have never sung before...

Lessons are challenging, but always a pleasure."

"Sarah [Rhodes] truly understands the workings of the individual voice and demonstrates this during each lesson with a strong emphasis upon technique thus improving my overall performance and progress. Sarah's enthusiasm and love for teaching is very obvious and she is an extremely encouraging teacher who always looks for the positive aspects in her students.

[Sarah] has been an invaluable mentor, teacher and friend."
