"I have a belief there are many elements that create a singer, not only the possession of an attractive voice! Australia has a rich and diverse arts environment however; it is not solely guided by the traditional "European system". A singer needs to be flexible, versatile and open to new repertoire. I believe a teacher and mentor should aim to produce a singer who can work in Australia and internationally in a variety of musical and theatrical styles. This is the focus of my studio and my personal aim: to be a singer and produce singers who sing with a love of what they are creating, who sing with healthy voice, are open to all styles of music and have a passion for diverse performance practice of the highest standard.

CAPO Gala Art Auction Evening!

Dear Art lover ... or learner....
Its on again and I really do encourage you to have a look at the invite and consider attending, if only to have a champagne with Ben and myself!!
Every year I have a blast trying to get a bargain and pick the “chosen “ art at the Art Auction Gala and Award announcements. I am always happy and excited with the treasures I bring home and really it is a highlight of the year for me. CAPO is the organisation that assisted me to go to Germany so if you, through your involvement with me, have been “ touched”by CAPO, then please support the next fortunate artist that will have the opportunity I had.
See you there!
Susan Ellis
