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 specialising in Jazz and improvised singing. Over the years I have performed internationally, including cruises, jazz festivals and sold out shows at Pizza Express Jazz Club Dean Street.


My first memories of singing are of being a child singing at home and in my schools prodution of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. From there I continued singing as a child in the school choirs and productions. I later studied music A level and had the privalige to study under the late great Martin Read, who helped my love of music (specifically Jazz) expand. 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. Through the years I have been tought by many great music educators as well as singingers/ vocal coaches and below listed is just a small few mentioned:

  • Anita Wardell

  • Trudy Kerr

  • Pette Churchill

  • Rod Paton

  • Nick Reynolds

  • Brigitte Beraha


After I had finished studing I set up private vocal/singing lesssons 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 aproached to teach at a local stage school "Italia Conti Associates Petersfield". Where I have been MD and Singing Teacher/ Vocal Coach for going on two years now. My role consits of teaching group classes of pupils age 6-18 all varieties of music not just Musicals.

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