A Quick Note ...

 

 

"Every singer, every musician,every person is different. They are uniquely their own self with their own unique talent. I have never believed in the "cookie cutter" method. At Theatre Street Music we encourage individuality and strive to nurture that in a fun, relaxed and very musical atmosphere. Always."
