Singing Teacher - Opera Coach - Opera/Stagecraft Workshops
Amelia Farrugia's endoresement
"I worked with Ghilly to start getting back into singing after a long break. She correctly identified that I had changed voice type and worked to introduce me to my new voice type by providing me with some terrific advice and operatic pieces to develop my voice. I also worked with Ghilly on three of her opera workshops, which I found to be inspiring and fun ways to improve stagecraft, groupwork, and the quick learning of music. Ghilly particularly assisted me in improving jaw release, foreign language pronunciation, and placement. I would definitely recommend her as a fun and professional teacher for students looking to re-enter singing and improve their presentation of arias."

"I have known Ghillian Sullivan for many years, having seen her in several memorable performances as a soprano with Opera Australia, and worked with her as an adjudicator in several important competitions in Sydney. I have always found her to be a sympathetic colleague, and genuinely interested in the future of opera, especially in the area of working with young singers who are in the training stage. I would certainy recommend Ghillian, withput hesitation, as an adjudicator, vocal teacher, and workshop director or guest for masterclasses."
