Private Downtown Kelowna Studio
Let me guide you on your path to finding YOUR voice. Goals come in all shapes and sizes and are as unique as you are. Whether your goal is to become a professional singer or be more confident at karaoke, singing around the campfire or recording a hit song, give a dynamite theatre audition or perform in the chorus, become a star soloist or join your church choir, give a speech at a wedding, or land that big account with an awesome presentation, I can help.
As an experienced voice teacher and performer, I will create lessons that coach you and develop the necessary skills to make your vocal dreams come true.
The last cafe performance of the year was held June 25th at Montreal Real Foods on Kirschner. Wow! What a Show!! 3.5 hours of music with a FULL house of family and friends. Many performers had their best ever moments. The choir performances of Because The World Is Round and Bohemian Rhapsody were fantastic! Well done everyone!!
In October, December, March and June, voice students of Kelowna Voice Lab have the opportunity to perform their songs in a casual, relaxed environment at a cafe or restaurant in Kelowna.
The public is invited to attend: coffee, tea, wine, beer and food are all available for purchase.
Each performance has a different theme ranging from Musical Theatre to Love Songs to Holiday Songs. The variety of musical styles helps the singers stretch their vocal ability and have fun exploring a style they might not otherwise be drawn towards.
Kim accompanies the students on a keyboard but often her husband Jim adds guitar or she might play bass depending on the song. Occasionally, students might also sing with pre-recorded tracks depending on which form of accompaniment best serves the song. The end of year show features all students performing two songs as well as together in two choir numbers.
The student cafes are a great chance for novice and experienced singers alike to perform in the supportive and non competitive environment that friends and family provide. Performing regularly helps singers conquer the nervous jitters often associated with big "end of the year" performances and "slay the performance dragon".
Dylan Sterling Memorial Bursary
On May 15, 2014 my oldest son Dylan Martin Sterling passed away in his sleep from heart failure.
To honour Dylan's beautiful life and his passion for electronic music, a bursary has been established in his name to help other young aspiring musicians pursue a career in music at Nimbus Music School in Vancouver. On May 15, 2015, our family presented the first $1,000 bursary at a student assembly in Vancouver and continues to present this bursary each May.
Here is our family presenting the bursary this year to a lovely young woman who is destined to make her mark on the music industry.
You can learn more about this amazing young man who was lost far too soon, see pictures, hear his music, view the hundreds of hand-painted stones that have been placed in his honour all over the world and donate to the bursary by visiting Dylan's memorial website at: www.DylanSterling.net.
