The last few weeks have been busy for all of us.
Summer is a time of rest, fun, and creativity!
I am so proud of all my students. This last year has not been an easy one.
I am grateful to see their smiles every week and hear their progress with every new song.
Please enjoy this little window into our summer! (This is a small but mighty offering!)
To my students... YOU ROCK! So incredibly proud of you! Thank you for being BRAVE and SHINING YOUR LIGHT!

Syren's Voice Mid-Year Recital!
(Formerly known as the Spring Recital but, since we are online, we have MORE performance opportunities! Huzzah!)
This has been a very creative spring!
Students continued to push themselves to learn more difficult techniques, styles, and ranges of songs.
They are certainly leveling up their "musical moxie". WOOT!
Every recital just makes my heart sing!
I am so proud of my students for facing the challenges of this past year with humble hearts and a passion for showing up! They inspire me beyond words.
Courage! Kindness! Trust!
Woot! for being courageous to try new things.
Woot! for being kind to yourself when a skill may not come quickly.
Woot! for trusting that it's all there, inside, for the performance.
Here's to all the performers, to their amazing performances, and to all their hard work!
Big hugs and love!

What a wild year this has been! Next week will mark the one year anniversary of moving lessons online. WOW!
I cannot accurately express how proud I am of my students for being adaptable, patient, and
BRAVE to work through this truly unique year with its challenges and waves of uncertainty.
This is a remarkable time to be alive.
