Our Founder, Master Instructor & Head of Research, Training & Development is Australian Master Intuitive Sound Therapist, Musician & Yogi, Sharon Q. who is based in Ireland since 2013.    .

A former Software Engineer and College Lecturer, Sharon brings a vast knowledge and expertise to her teachings gained from over 30 years experience with sound & frequency medicine, in a range of clinical, research and education settings.  Sharon’s effective teaching style embodies the philosophy of natural learning – a stress-free client-centred approach to education founded in the ancient ways of sacred wisdom teachings.  

Creating a highly inspiring, effective and engaging learning environment focused wholly and completely on the unique learning needs and abilities of the individual, rather than the one-size-fits-all approach of traditional teaching methods.  This teaching style is also popularised in modern times by Rudolf Steiner.  Sharon has also designed various buildings for a Steiner school in Western Australia.

Which means that here at Irish Academy of Sound Therapy, you are free to choose how quickly or slowly it takes for you complete your studies.  Proven and effective assessment methods for teaching adults in the workplace are utilised throughout your training, ensuring a stress-free, inspiring and engaging learning experience – for best results!
