We can offer Consultancy work to schools and Performing Arts groups to assist with National competitions: giving singing tuition to the non singers within the Performing Arts Groups for example. Song arrangements can be undertaken upon request.

Lessons can be on a one to one basis, shared lessons with a friend or as a group.

I began singing lessons with Sarah at the age of 11 after discovering a love for musical theatre.
I had lessons with Sarah until leaving school at age 18.
Sarah is a fantastic teacher and I enjoyed all my lessons and performances with her. I did up to grade six examinations under Sarah, receiving only distinctions and merits.
I can wholeheartedly say that 100% of my development as a singer is down to the time I spent with Sarah.
My technique improved within weeks of starting lessons.
I am now going off to study acting at Birmingham School of acting after successful rounds of auditions, including accompanied musical theatre songs.
I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough; she is a wonderful teacher.
I owe so much to her.

We have been with The CuxTones since it formed and can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we have made. We both love to sing and felt that a community choir would be a good pastime to share. From the outset we felt very welcome, Sarah is one of the most patient and understanding people you could ever wish to meet, not to mention talented in both her singing and her composing. Over the years she has instilled a confidence in us both that we never dreamed would be possible.

We enjoy the choir so much that we decided to have private lessons with Sarah too and have found these to be extremely beneficial in enhancing our whole singing experience; we can’t imagine a life without singing and we wouldn’t want to imagine a life where Sarah and The CuxTones weren’t a part of that singing, we cannot recommend it strongly enough.
