She has been the singing and performance tutor at Cranleigh Arts Centre since 2001 and the singing tutor for the West Sussex Adult Education Service since 2006; she is also the founder and choral director of the Cranleigh Community Choir.

Sharon undertook a formal classical training with Findlay Wilson of English National Opera but has also worked as a session singer at Abbey Road Studios in London. Prior to this she fronted numerous rock bands in London.
Sharon is also a registered hypnotherapist, which comes in very handy when helping students to understand what's going on with performance nerves and to help them find ways to overcome them.
Sharon now divides her time between working as a singer in a jazz/swing duo, in another duo singing rock and more contemporary styles like r'n'b as well as teaching singing and performance.
