Mission - Transform hearts, minds, voices Learning to sing is more than just about music. It's about learning to live in your body and confidently express yourself. Think of your body as the instrument and your voice as the vehicle. What you have to say is valuable, and this body/voice of yours is your tool for communication. When you live in your body and find your authentic voice, you will be an inspiring force in the world.
"When faced with a challenging task or circumstance, the difference between joy and terror is technique." -Nevine Michaan
