Our Story

A Sharp Music - Sutherland

A little about our Founder and Principal Teacher - Michelle Cridland. 

Michelle began her Musical Journey at the age of 5 when her parents enrolled her in piano lessons at their local YAMAHA music school in the Sutherland Shire. Michelle participated in many eisteddfods and annual concerts as well as completing exams under the Yamaha system. During her time at Yamaha Michelle took part in group classes as well as private classes where she completed all her AMEB Practical exams as well as AMEB Musicianship exams.

Michelle also began singing lessons throughout this time where she completed GUILD exams and took part in various eisteddfods.

In 2007 Michelle began studies at The Australian Institute of Music where she completed a Bachelor of Music.

In 2007 Michell founded A Sharp Music and began teaching private piano lessons from home. Within a small amount of time we grew substantially, teaching lessons 6 days a week, Monday – Saturday.

In 2012 Michelle moved A Sharp Music to it's Miranda Location, where we grew for 4 years. Here we employed teachers and expanded our lessons to include piano, guitar, singing and theory classes running over 2 rooms.


With the maximum amount of students enrolled in weekly classes, we reached full capacity at our Miranda studio and needed a suitably larger, more prominent premises to continue building our music school. 

In 2016, Michelle moved A Sharp Music to its new custom built location in Sutherland, where we now stand. 


A little about our School and Teachers.


A Sharp Music Sutherland, has 6 custom built rooms all fitted with sound proofing and quality equipment, making it one of its only kind in the Sutherland Shire. We have space in all our class rooms for parents to sit in on children's lessons if they choose while also having an extensive waiting area for those choosing to pick up and drop off. 

With friendly, fun, yet sophisticated teachers, A Sharp Music, Sutherland is a music school which aims to offer the upmost in musical education within the Sutherland Shire. Our Teachers are fully qualified in preparing students for AMEB exams, HSC examination, University and musical auditions as well as helping beginners learn the fundamentals of music in the correct manner.  Our teachers are young and energetic, making lesson time fun and motivating. This results in students WANTING to come to their lessons rather than HAVING to.

Offering one on one private Piano lessons, Guitar lessons, Singing lessons and Theory lessons, our teachers are able to tailor lessons to suit each individual student, and help them set and achieve goals and excel at their instrument of choice. This creates a safe and inclusive environment for all students to learn and feel comfortable, creating huge learning results. 

We look forward to seeing you at A Sharp Music soon!
