Sharon Ponte

Port Charlotte Piano Teacher SharonPonteSharon A. Ponte has been teaching voice and piano lessons since 1997. In that time, countless aspiring musicians have come through her door, learning the art of singing and playing.  Sharon's teaching philosophy is simple; “It should be fun. It should always be positive” and most importantly “I haven't failed in fourteen years to teach someone and I'm not going to start now!” Sharon's students have many opportunities to perform throughout the community. There are several recitals a year, such as Sharon's Idol Contests, Summer Show-offs, and even Christmas performances at local retirement homes. “The only way to get over stage fright is to perform....and perform....and perform....”

Sharon is also the Music Director for Edison College. Her credits include The Wedding Singer, Aida, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Curtains the Musical, and Hairspray. “I love what I do and I am so fortunate to have such amazing people in my life. My students inspire me to be a better teacher every day. We are often like a crazy, fun happy family"
