Sarah Phillips


Having started my career as a classroom teacher with a specialism in music, I then became a peripetetic singing teacher 12 years ago. As a performer, I have worked with a variety of choirs and have taken several lead roles in the Theatre Royal Bath.
I have Grade 8 singing and Grade 7 piano.
As part of my role within Matravers School, I also run the school choir, am currently Musical Director of school productions.
I also run a couple of adult singing groups around Bath.

What I / we help young people achieve

Knowing how much I gained from participating fully in the musical aspects of school life, my aim is to encourage as many pupils as possible to experience the benefits of achieving their potential as a musician.

Sensitive tutoring involves nurturing and encouraging pupils to gain the confidence to become performers who engage emotionally with their audience and a big part of this is being flexible enough to find suitable repertoire for each pupil.

Therefore, I teach a variety of musical theatre, pop and light classical.
Nothing beats the look on a student's face when they connect with a song.
Pupils are then encouraged to take part in larger groups such as choirs and ensembles.
