High School is a critical time in a young singer’s life. It can be a challenge to enjoy the ride when so much is expected, pressure weighs heavy, and big decisions loom. And isn’t the point of singing to enjoy it?

What if I told you that we have the procedures of achievement upside down? We come up with our lists of dreams, our top college picks, and the ever-looming ACT score— all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And here’s the heart of it all: All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way. So what if instead, we get clear on how we actually want to feel within ourselves? 

Discover what you want most by attending this Desire Map Workshop, focused on your life as a singer. In our time together, you will sing in a college-level Masterclass, learn about your options as a vocalist, and walk away with your Core Desired Feelings. These CDFs will help guide your decisions for college and career in a way that will put the joy back in your song. 

I can’t wait to see you here!
