Happy Singing Everyone,

Emma

 

 

So Many Musicals! Term 2

Wow it has been another massive term here at Music with Emma, with 3 musicals, The northern Beaches Eisteddfod and Grace Colley starting to teach singing lessons, it’s been extremely exciting and fun.  Grace will be taking over lessons for me in Pennant Hills as I will now be solely teaching from my studio in Ryde. I just wanted to say a quick thank you to C3 Carlingford for all your support and encouragement over the last 2 and a half years and for allowing me and my students to use your space to sing from each Tuesday night.

Musical Update

Georgia was incredible as Tracey in Hairspray, from the moment she appeared on stage Georgia blew me and everyone else away. Her singing, facial expressions and comedic timing made the show just incredible. Georgia is currently looking into future productions, having been in SYMT’s production of Cinderella last year and now Hairspray at Pacific Hills, She definitely has a lot of opportunities and will only keep going up from here.

Ben gave a powerful performance as Horton in Sussical the Musical. Every second he was on stage he was acting. Including 4 songs where he just had to sit on the side of the stage feeling miserable about his predicament he never let up, not for a second!  He’s voice was strong and he was especially moving. He’s already being courted by local theatre groups and I’m sure this is only the start of his career in Musical Theatre!10357761_476346145858148_2823119421411601734_o 11406532_476345962524833_7141731062289849555_o
