A young Humm reader sent in this testament to taking music lessons, which we published in our January issue. If you’re looking for lessons for yourself or your kids, check out the “Classes, Courses, Lessons” in that issue or online!
“My name is Cameron, and I am twelve years old. I was reading your “Happy Local Holidays!” editorial in the December 2014 issue of the Humm, and wanted to tell you how glad I was to see Mississippi Mills Musicworks mentioned in your Gift Giving Guide. I’ve been a vocal student at MMM since September 2013, and I feel really lucky that my parents bought me music lessons. Katy Maltby is my teacher at MMM, but I think all the teachers there are super cool. They know me by name, they always say “hi” to me, and they always have something encouraging to say.
“After only a few months of taking singing lessons at MMM, I decided to audition for the musical Les Misérables, which is running at Centrepointe Theatre in January. I would have never even considered auditioning before, but Katy, George, Harriet and Alex at MMM all pitched in to help me prepare and to step out of my comfort zone. I was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to play Petite Cosette in the January production, and I know that without MMM this would have never happened.
“I hope after reading your editorial that lots of other kids get signed up for music classes at MMM. It would be great to meet some new people and to share the fun and the pure awesomeness of George and his crew.”
