Suzanne was the first voice teacher I ever had who truly listened to me.

To be a singer is one of the most brave and vulnerable callings a person can have.

To have a teacher who continued to both inspire me as an artist and give me a solid technique, whilst simultaneously encouraging me to embrace who I am – is a rare gift and one that I am still thankful for.

After performing with Suzanne in one of my concerts, I struggled to find another singer with such sense of beautiful phrasing, vocal clarity and immaculate intonation.  Her musical intuition made singing with her an absolute pleasure and a real privilege.  Suzanne Kompass is without a doubt, a World Class Soprano

She has that unique ability to communicate and connect with her audience immediately and then hold them transfixed until her final note.

A wonderful colleague to work with it, she is flexible, adaptable, and highly professional. A fine musician with gorgeous lyric voice, Suzanne is able to sing a wide range of repertoire from opera to musical theatre to popular song.
I look forward to our many future collaborations.

Suzanne Kompass is in a word “Brilliant”. She is not only a world class performer, but an incomparable instructor. I had the tremendous good fortune to study with Suzanne for many years in Toronto. Her greatest gift to me was providing me with the fundamental building blocks for singing, and then building on them one by one. By setting that foundation, I was able to grow and expand my capabilities, and more importantly my confidence. Her ability to listen and immediately hone in on what was needed is second to none. She never rests on her laurels (although well deserved), but continually explores and probes for ways to find a truer sound. Her warmth, dedication and professional manner set her apart as the epitomé of a brilliant performer and teacher.

Suzanne Kompass is the most natural vocal producer I’ve seen in action. She “sees” sound and instinctively knows how to fix any issues. Without Suzanne and her prowess in the rehearsal & recording studio preparing our Tenor Greg Moore for his CD “I’ve Dreamed of You”, we would not have had the amazing result we found ourselves with

From the album notes “I’ve Dreamed of You”

To the wonderful Suzanne Kompass, your vocal guidance managed to get the very best out of me on stage and in the studio but mostly, thank you for your friendship. I’m so thrilled to have you sing on this album with me.

“Under Suzanne’s wing I became a classical singer. In the short while that I was with her, with her my voice grew and began to ring. My friends and family were astonished at my quick and vast improvement. Other than technique, Suzanne instilled a new confidence in me. Her caring nature helped coach me through my many successful auditions for universities. An active performer herself, she is knowledgeable of the singing scene and how to make connections. Suzanne Kompass is a well-rounded and wonderful teacher.”

I had the great fortune of studying with Suzanne during my undergraduate degree at Queen’s University. She is an extraordinary teacher. She has that ‘X-Ray Ear” every great voice teacher cultivates, and with it comes an acute ability to help her students discover the source of their vocal issues and to move through them and past them with efficiency and ease. Suzanne is forever inspiring and you would be wise to book yourself a weekly spot in her studio before they’re all gone!
