Student Successes!

After a good deal of hard work on their part, I’m thrilled to report successful auditions for singers to: AIMS Opera Program in Austria; offers received from Ottawa, Carleton and Toronto University Voice programs; and a successful musical run of Edwin Drood in which three students were involved.

In September last year, two students received places on the voice programs at Canterbury and De La Salle High Schools.  There was also success in a Grade 4 RCM voice exam and received a well deserved First Class Honours.  Congratulations everyone!

Kanata Singing Teacher and Singer

Hi, I’m Diana Sharp, a singing teacher and singer located in Kanata, Ontario. 

Welcome!  I love singing and working with singers.  My background is in studying bel canto technique and working as an opera singer in the UK, but in my search to discover all things voice related I’ve studied contemporary singing techniques and work with singers whose styles vary from opera to pop and a lot in between.  As a singer I have worked with some wonderful teachers, coaches and conductors over 20 years of performing opera, comedy and in orchestral concerts in a wide range of musical styles.  My students have ranged from amateurs to professionals with students performing in musical theatre, rock bands, choirs and opera as well as successfully auditioning for Oxford University Music, Ottawa U Music and Acadia U for Music Therapy.  I moved to Canada from the UK in 2013 where I was a member of the Association of Teachers of Singing (www.aotos.org.uk) and a regular conference attendee at the British Voice Association.  I have a Licentiate from the Trinity College London and a Diploma in Opera Performance and I’ve been teaching for 13 years both in schools and at my own private studio.  I’ve also worked with singers recovering from voice disorders and people preparing for public speaking.  Check out my facebook page: Diana Sharp Singing Teacher for videos and articles on singing.
