Hello! I'm Sarah Dunbar, a professional singing teacher based in Cardiff. I offer high-quality singing lessons in the Cardiff area.
I am a professional singer, having performed in various works, including: Too Hot to Handel at The Theatre Royal Windsor; Stravinski’s The Rakes Progress (OperaCoast 2013) and Handel’s Saul (Zezere Arts Festival 2011)
I have had many years of experience tutoring both male and female students of 4+ in classical, musical theatre and jazz genres.
As I am a professional tutor, for your peace of mind I hold an Enhanced DBS Check and full valid Public Liability Insurance.
I am very friendly, easy to speak to and informal as a tutor. This makes arranging and taking singing lessons an absolute breeze.

Half an hour lessons. These are best suited to beginner students or young learners or 4+ who wish to have their first introduction to singing.
One hour lessons, these are best suited to students with a real passion for singing who wish to practice and progress rapidly in a short space of time.
'Sarah is an excellent teacher, she helps me to improve my singing by not just telling me tips on how to improve but guiding my ability during lessons; I learn better by being shown rather than being told. '
'Sarah’s positivity and clever utilisation of my daughter's strengths has ensured that my daughter wants to go to her lessons and is engaged during the lesson which has resulted in a significant improvement in her grade.'
'I had been singing for a while but wanted to expand my range. I am now a Mezzo Soprano and singing in a higher range that I never thought possible. Which are all thanks to Sarah's help and guidance?'
I am a qualified teacher, having achieved a PGDip Vocal Performance from The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and an MA Opera Performance from The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
As the fundamental techniques for singing are the same across styles, I can offer singing lessons in any style you would like although I specialise in Classical, Opera, Jazz, Musical Theatre.
I offer my students a tailored lesson plan to their individual goals. I am a creative director of A La Canto, so I specialise in helping you develop your vocal ability, whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced singer.
I understand starting singing lessons can be daunting, I was in this position myself once! I would be delighted to pass on my knowledge and experience to help you achieve your singing goals. Get in touch to book your first lesson today.
