My vocal studio has recitals and open mics every 3 or 4 months to encourage students to present what they have been learning and challenge themselves. Most of them play an instrument and sing songs ranging from folk pop to jazz. I love watching them perform for the first time when they realize that they can be on stage and do well without being overtaken by stage fright! It is so wonderful that Our Town Cafe has welcomed my students to the stage. Thank you!
