My daughter has always been an outspoken, do what she wants, performer at heart. She recently got accepted to the National American Miss Finals. When I learned about Stage Dreams it seemed like a great way to get my daughter's speaking up to par, since she will be speaking in front of a large audience. The Teacher at Stage Dreams was very friendly and my daughter warmed up to her instantly. She makes the class fun for the kids and teaches them warm up excercises and different techniques to use while they are singing. The first day they each got to pick a song that they were going to practice and sing at the recital at the end up the 6 week class. My daughter wanted a pop song, because that's what she sings at home all the time, but she ended up with "maybe" a Shirley Temple song. This song is perfect for her and she's really grown to love it. After they run through excersizes each day and learn something new about sounds they each go in front of the class and practice singing their songs. I can't wait until the recital! But for now she is learning how to read music and sing to her fullest potential.
