She has performed extensively as a soloist and ensemble member in many operas, and has professionally sung with the NZ Opera Chorus for 11 years.  Sharon worked as a Registered Music Therapist for two years, specialising in adult and adolescent mental health areas such as eating disorders and substance dependence.  Her teaching experience includes teaching mainly singing; but also piano, barbershop groups, choirs, and vocal coaching and musical direction for musicals.  Sharon’s approach to teaching is non-genre specific and is focussed on vocal health and beauty.
