Fall Session

I am happy to announce that we will be offering 2 classes in the fall session! There will be a class on Tuesdays at 4:00-4:45 for ages 5-8 and Wednesdays at 4:00-4:45 for ages 9-12. Both classes will be held at Wheatfield Community Center. I am keeping the cost low and affordable for families in the community at $60/month. Our younger class will be learning some Disney selections. The older class will be learning selections from decades including 80s, 90s, and 2000s.

We will have opportunities to perform in the community throughout the season. Our classes are held weekly for 1 hour. We learn basic music concepts, vocal techniques, rhythm, and ear training. We will also learn performing skills, how to use a microphone, singing with a minus track, and much more! Our previous sessions have been so much fun! We had some great experiences in performing in the community and in the Menifee Independence Day Parade. I would love to have more friends join us for our fall session. Please feel free to call or email me to sign up get more information.

Month of February

Our classes have continued to be jam packed with learning and fun. We introduced "Any Dream Will Do" from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" from Annie. The kids have caught on so quickly and really enjoyed the songs. We will be finishing the choreography to "Seize the Day" and solidifying our solo parts on "Anything You Can Do" in the next couple of weeks. I am so thrilled with our progress so far!

Weeks 2 and 3

Our classes have been going very well! This week we learned about pitch recognition. We learned to recognize when notes sound higher or lower. We started learning a new song where we will have solo opportunities with "Anything You Can Do" from Annie Get Your Gun. Everyone who would like to can have an opportunity for a small solo. We will be working on holding your own part while someone else is singing a different part.The kids really love this song. It gives them a chance to show some personality!

We have also continued to work on choreography for "Seize the Day". Students have learned how to stagger a line so they can all be seen in a performance. We have talked about full body movements opposed to small hand motions. We finished learning "Do-Re-Mi" and we are sounding great with this song!

Students should have received their practice CDs this week. The CD contains a rehearsal track with guide vocals (singers). It also contains the instrumental version or performance track. This has only the music with no singers. I would like all students to listen to and practice with their CDs at home so they can become more familiar with the songs. The best way for children to learn music is through repetition. So it may drive you crazy to hear the same songs over and over again but it is the best way for the kids to learn the music and words.

First Class

We had a very successful debut class! The kids were so cute and eager to learn! We did some exercise while learning note values and rhythm. The children should be able to recognize whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, and eighth notes.We also had fun learning words and hand actions to "Do-Re-Mi". We wrapped up the class by learning some choreography to "Seize the Day". I am so proud of all of my Starlight Singers for participating with a great attitude. I couldn't have been happier with our first class! See you next week!

Welcome To Starlight Singers

Welcome to Starlight Singers! I am so excited to be able to offer singing and performing classes in Menifee! I can't wait to see the untapped talent we have here. I believe that all children need to have something in their life that fills them with joy and gives them the confidence they need to grow up in this challenging world. Starlight Singers will provide children with the opportunity to learn music principles, a variety of songs, movement to music, and performance skills. They will get the chance to showcase all of their hard work in a performance for family and friends.

How it works:
Classes are held in 12-week sessions.
Children attend classes once a week for 45 minutes, Wednesdays at 4:00.
Classes are located at the small gym at Wheatfield Park in Menifee (30627 Menifee Rd)
At the end of the session there will be a performance for family and friends to come watch what their little stars have learned.

There are 2 options for payment
     1) $60/month
     2) $160 for the entire 12-week session

Other Information:
Each session will have a music theme. Each session will focus on one genre of music. Our first session will contain music from Broadway shows. Some upcoming themes will include: Disney, 80s, Today's Hits, Holiday, 60s, and more.
I also offer private voice lessons
