It started with cartoon movies and now she’s graduated to full-on showtunes! Not only does she loves to sing, but she’s been told on numerous occasions that she has great vibrato. Now I am not vocally trained (except in my dreams) but I know vibrato when I hear it. It’s exciting for her! She’s going to be in the school talent show at the end of this month, but before that, we have amazing things cooked up for her! I am proud to announce my partnership with Guitar Center – and Scarlet will be getting vocal lessons SOON! I was happy to hear her talking about it with friends and teachers. It’s a big deal!
I admit that I’m a little nervous. My kids are so different from me. I was content with backstage crew and photography, as long as I kept some distance between crowds. My kids are both going to theater camp this summer and Scarlet is taking vocal lessons in West Springfield – only 15 minutes from Northampton. I think musical education is crucial to children. That’s why I’m happy to share my 6 Reasons We’re Excited For Scarlet to Start Vocal Lessons at Guitar Center next week:
1 – Music education has a host of benefits her instructor will help her with. Vocal or instrument lessons give a sense of confidence and self-esteem. Music education can increase social skills and help with academic improvement and retention. Music education promotes cognitive reasoning, motor functions and hand-eye coordination, cultural awareness, and physical well being. Not to mention that Scarlet’s lessons may lower anxiety, help create discipline, and give her a wonderful outlet for self expression. That is something I’m anticipating the most. Scarlet has always been nothing but self expressive.
2 – Guitar Center has created custom curriculum that focuses on teaching theory through contemporary music. Scarlet is so excited for that! All of their programs are approved by the National Association for Music Education, the world’s largest arts education organization. Also, her instructor will help tailor curriculum to her goals and interests with a database on thousands of songs to learn. I already know what Scarlet is going to mention, in terms of what she loves to sing. Our location has lessons for voice, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, recording software, and band and orchestra, for all levels.
3 – Convenience. Guitar Center has over 200 locations nationally, as well as brand-new facilities. This is one-stop shopping! You can find lessons, retail, instrument repairs, and supplemental learning materials. Find a location near you.
4 – The instructors. Their pro instructors have a passion for music and want to help YOU reach your musical goals. Scarlet has been paired with an instructor just right for her. And there are weekly office hours to supplement the education.
5 – The instruments. Guitar Center offers more than violin – you can take any instrument, anywhere. And they have an achievement program to help students monitor their progress with a 6 tiered program. Students can learn in their own time.
See why Scarlet can’t wait to learn to sing? Now, let’s get connected! Find out more about what Guitar Center has to offer here. And follow them on Instagram and Facebook. I’ll be following up to let you know how it’s going.
