Why Confident Voice Studio?

Why did I name the business with the word “voice” in it if we were going to teach other instruments like piano, ukulele, guitar and songwriting?

Let me share my thinking with you.

Confidence is defined as a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

“Voice” is defined as

  • the right to expression in spoken or written words, or by other means
  • the right to present and receive consideration of one’s desires or opinions
  • an expressed opinion or choice
  • an expressed will or desire
  • expressed wish or injunction

A studio is a room or place for instruction or experimentation in one of the performing arts

Confidence isn’t just about singing or playing an instrument.

And neither is our studio. Though we focus on musical and performing arts related programs, we’re incorporating success principles, habit development, resilience, communication, emotional intelligence, growth mindset, and more into our client’s training. Younger students don’t realize it but benefit. Adult students appreciate the well-rounded education they are receiving.

Just knowing how to play or how to sing isn’t enough.

Because we may not play or sing as a career or even through our lives. But knowing how to stand tall, proudly, express oneself, and appreciate who we are and what we bring to the table, how to bounce back after a mistake or “failure” and how to set goals, make plans to achieve them, take action and adjust when there are obstacles (and there are always obstacles)…well, that’s the way you make a life you love.

After 14 years of solo entrepreneurship, a career as a certified professional coach, a twice-published author, a recording artist, an awarded business consultant, producer, director, writer, performer, choreographer, costumer, and a voice teacher and performance coach, I know that joy comes from making your dreams a reality and it’s impossible to do that if you don’t believe in yourself and have a support team of friends, family, and teachers and mentors around you.

And that’s what we help our clients and students do at Confident Voice Studio.

And it’s our purpose on the planet and our deepest joy to teach, coach and guide our clients toward their goals, however big or small they may be.

It’s an honor and a privilege.

12 Ways Parents Can Help An Only Child Not Feel Lonely

Having an only child gives you a mature, diligent, and conscientious little perfectionist—but it also comes with some tough parenting moments. 

Fifty years ago, people frequently saw only children as socially anxious, shy, pampered, and lonely. However, the tide has shifted, and as the percentage of only children increases, their status in society has risen. According to the Pew Research Center, 22% of youngsters lacked siblings once their mothers reached the end of childbearing age in 2015, compared with 11% in 1967.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. There are families with more than 12 children, and others with none. A small family differs dramatically from a large one and, consequently, comes with an entirely different set of challenges and rewards.

Being an only child has many advantages, but there are disadvantages, too.

Does being an only child mean you are destined to be lonely?

Definitely Not! It’s important to understand that not having more children isn’t hurting your only child and isn’t destined to be lonely, pampered, or spoiled.

As a parent, there is much you can do to help your child adapt to being an only child and suffer less loneliness.
