When did you start music lessons in Kitchener? What was your teacher like?
I started music lessons when I was 7/ 8 years old. Irene, was my first music teacher in Kitchener– she was strict but incredibly passionate about music and performance.
I was forced to dive right in and push myself past my comfort zone with every practice!
From there I was accepted into Kitchener’s High school, Eastwood Collegiate Auditioned Arts Program.
My teachers all varied, from being more focused on technical “and doing things right” and others more focused on ornamentation and the emotion of music and “how it makes you feel.” Learning from both sides, have been incredibly important to my music, and singing career. The teachers that balanced the two, were my favorite! (just like Feely Piano, nudge nudge)
How do you inspire your fans?
There are three items in my recipe of success:
I look to share and send good vibes, prayers, funny moments and beyond. Check out my Twitter!
I often speak and stand for movements and causes that are important to me, like Anti-Bullying, Mental Health Awareness and Women’s Empowerment!
My Music, is either made to entertain, or to act as an outlet to share important messages and experiences; but I think standing as an ambassador, outside of music, is what makes all the difference.
People don’t care what you do, until they know why you do it. Melle Rose
