At Glengrove Studio, there is no greater joy than meeting every singer where they are at and collaborating to bring vitality to their singing and speaking. Singers of any age, physical ability, neurodiversity, gender, sexuality and cultural background are welcomed, heard and encouraged. 

A passion for sharing information that transforms learning and performing experiences is shared through one-to-one sessions, blogs, social media content, online courses and e-books. In this way, there is a bridging of the gap between scientific research, industry expectations, and personal experience.

About Sharon Tree

The only thing greater than my passion for music is my love for facilitating transformative experiences in people’s lives…unearthing their God-given treasures of creativity, vocal freedom and confidence. Those “a-ha” moments never grow old! Sharon Tree

I have lived and breathed music since at least the age of five, although an enthusiasm for dancing to rock and pop music began around age three!  

The recorder band and school choir in early primary school were quickly followed by flute and then piano lessons. High school years were full of bands, choirs, musicals, concerts, an obsession with Countdown and creating mix-tapes. I pursued my passion through tertiary study at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University, majoring in piano and including classical voice and guitar studies. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Music) which turned out to be just the beginning, as thirteen years later I returned to the Con to pursue postgraduate study, specialising in the teaching of singing.  After moving to Canberra in 2005, I started a small business as a piano and vocal tutor. This has grown to focus on the teaching of singing exclusively, with an emphasis on contemporary genres and musical theatre. 

I have now begun to learn the drums as my current music hobby. It is good for teachers to always be students.
