YOUR CHILD COULD SOUND LIKE THIS: THE FOLLOWING ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF PRE-PROFESSIONAL CHILDREN AT SLaS

While many students just want to take singing, piano, and guitar lessons for fun and enrichment, (and that is perfectly fine with us!) others have aspirations for professional careers on Broadway or in the music business.  Many Sing like a Star students have gone on to great success in the music and film businesses.  Here are just a few examples of many successful SLaS children:

Tricia is a fantastic vocal coach!  The best!  I love her!”  Katrina Abrams (Katrina Red Red)

Dear Miss Tricia
I just wanted to share the good news that my video was featured on the home page at Carnegie Hall Musical Exchange! And I am SO honored – Leslie Stifelman, who is Musical Director and Conductor for “Chicago: The Musical” on Broadway, wrote me an awesome note about my performance:
” Jonah I’m just totally stunned by how great this is and we are all so proud of you. This is a fantastic, epic performance.  You are navigating so many things well – just the registration alone is a mountain to climb.  Every register was perfect, in tune and with great color.  Your breath control (how bout the long note with nice vibrato and tone) your rhythm, your diction, your overall storytelling – you really captured the frenetic energy and essence of what the composer was looking for in describing someone on the cusp of turning 13.  I’m tempted to send this to JRB to see what he thinks!” (That would be Jason Robert Brown). 
Thank you so much, Miss Tricia,  for helping me learn to sing!

 PRE-PROFESSIONAL CHILDREN

Studio owner Tricia Grey, MM works with pre-professional, highly motivated children. She has had great success with her kids; several directors of local theatre companies comment often that her students are always recognizable in auditions as being the strongest contenders. While many students just want to take singing and piano lessons for fun and enrichment, (and that is perfectly fine with us!) others have aspirations for professional careers on Broadway or as recording artists. Many of our young Sing like a Star students have gone on to great success in the music and film businesses.

PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES

We provide performance opportunities with our twice-yearly showcases at a beautiful 250 seat professional theater in Dunwoody. We have two shows; a younger singers’ show, and a more advanced singers’ show. The shows are always sold out and they are really fun!

When we are preparing for the shows we focus extensively on performing skills and song presentation. We bring in choreographers who teach movement and stage presence. We video each performance and we provide a professional photographer. With each show, your child will become a more seasoned performer!

SLaS KIDSTARS SHOWCASE

The only requirement for us to work with your child is the willingness and ability of the child to practice the recorded lessons for 20-30 minutes each day, if the child is older than 8 years, and the willingness and ability of the parent to be proactive in scheduling and requiring regular daily practice.

* Parents, please do not over-schedule your child with activities, expect them to practice, and then quit lessons when they do not do so. It’s up to YOU to be very pro-active (all the way through high school) in scheduling and enforcing practice time. Even if kids love to sing songs, they don’t always love to practice the exercises- but that is the only way change and improvement occurs. Practice should be daily, and at the same time every day if possible. Start small, with 10 minutes of consistent practice every day, and then try to build up to the 20-30 minutes per day target. Children model your behavior; if you have ever wanted to take singing lessons, this is a great way to bond with your child!
