Hello and welcome to my website
I am a accomplished Award Winning UK Jazz Singer and Vocal Coach based near Petersfield, Hampshire. I have gained over ten years plus, experience in the music industry. Performing many different styles/genres of music, but mostly specializing in Jazz and improvised singing. Over the years I have performed internationally, including cruises, jazz festivals and sold out shows at London Jazz Clubs.
My first ever memory of singing are of me and my family singing along to music on a long car journey in France. A few years later I then performed my first solo in my schools production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream coat. From then on I was hooked and continued to sing in the school choirs and musical productions. In my teens I studied music A level and had the privilege to study under the late great Martin Read, who helped my love of music expand (specifically Jazz). More recently I gained a First Class Music Degree in Vocal Performance and studied at the prestigious Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. Additionally I was graciously awarded the Archers Scholarship for outstanding performance. Throughout the years I have been taught by many great music educators as well as singers/ vocal coaches and below listed is just a small few mentioned:
After I had finished studying I set up private vocal/singing lessons under the name "Sutton's Singing Lessons", with the idea of modeling my own teaching on the knowledge I had attained from my past teachers. Combining the classical and contemporary techniques and pedagogies I had picked up.

In addition to teaching private lessons I was approached to teach at a local stage school "Italia Conti Associates Petersfield". Where I have been MD and Singing Teacher/ Vocal Coach for over two years. My role consists of teaching all varieties of music not just Musicals to group classes of pupils aged 6-18.

As with everything, I ensure to keep my own singing and teaching up to date. This means constantly studying new books and techniques on the voice so that my teaching is always of the highest quality.
