Holiday Recital 2015

Don't forget to join us for the Holiday Recital on December 13th at 3pm and 5pm at M.I.A. Dance Factory. We have several students performing in two recitals. Each performing student will be assigned to perform in one recital. This is a good opportunity for students to show off their performance skills as well as for students to observe the event before deciding to participate sometime in the future. Everyone is invited, please join us!

MUSICTHON AT DADELAND MALL

Come support 6 students who will be performing for MusicThon on Saturday December 5th at 5:30pm at Dadeland Mall. The event is sponsored by Steinway Gallery of Miami and the Miami Music Teachers Association. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Miami Children's Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of Nicklaus Children's Hospital (also formerly known as Miami Children's Hospital). Please come out and support the student performers!

Warm-up before singing is a good idea

Why warming up is important for singers


1. Think of warming up as "waking" up your chords

2. Your vocal chords are actually a muscle that needs to be warmed up just like any other muscle in the body.

3. Helps you focus and concentrate on vocal technique

4. Humming first before singing helps you warm up safely

5. Develop low, middle, and high vocal registers plus develops a wider vocal range
