Sarah came from a musical family and has
always enjoyed singing and playing a variety of instruments. Her
earliest memory is wearing a blue choir robe and a funny hat at a time
when she could not even see over the choir stalls!
After studying at Southlands College and London University (main
studies: Trumpet, Music and Education), during which she gained her B.Ed
and M.A. and ARCM,
Sarah taught in
Junior and Prep Schools in Kew, Slough and Langley, quite often on a
part time basis while the family appeared (3 boys and 1 girl).
When the family moved to
Newbury in 1992 Sarah resumed her full time career.
Since 1997, Sarah has
been the Director of Music at St Nicolas Parish Church, Newbury. St
Nicolas is a large town centre church, and Sarah has grown the choir to
over 55 members, both Juniors and Adults. The choir performs regularly
for Sunday Services and Civic services. Special events have included
singing at Bristol and Coventry Cathedrals during the resident choirs
Summer break, and taking part in Sainsburys Choir of the Year
Competition (March 2000).
