Sarah Cambidge-Hamilton

Professional Opera Singer and Voice Teacher
Teaching Philosophy

As a classical vocalist, one of my passions is vocal pedagogy. So as a teacher, I feel the most important job is to help my students develop a free and easy vocal production, devoid of physical tension or bad habits. I strive to cater each lesson to my students individual needs, discovering and developing their unique gifts while teaching a general classical technique. We focus on correct posture and breath support as well as stage presence.

Experience

I have been teaching a private voice studio of all ages and abilities, for the past 3 years. I also perform extensively in recitals and opera productions including the roles of Susannah (Susannah), Countess (Le Nozze di Figaro), Marguerite (Faust), Suor Angelica (Suor Angelica), Micaela (Carmen) and the Second Lady (Die Zauberflöte).
I was one of the finalists in the 2013 Denver Lyric Opera Guild Competition, awarded fourth place overall.
