Every month we select students and showcase their talent to our Morris County communities. We have decided that along shinning the spotlight in our Facebook page; We will also be adding them to our Blogs.
Our first student is : Sophia Strelkoff.
Sophie's dream is to become a singer and is so happy to have found a place here at Soul Search Records to teach her how to sing. Sophie has always loved to sing, but one of the challenges she has had to overcome was mostly self-confidence and a bit of shyness. A year ago she was presented with an opportunity to go for voice lessons, but Sophie got too nervous about actually having to sing in front of someone who was not family and was afraid she would not be good enough and get booed. But she figured out on her own that she had to take the chance and sing in front of strangers in order to try and follow her dreams of becoming a singer. Sophie has learned you have to sometimes step out of your comfort zone in order to reach your goals and dreams. She says she still feels nervous about the thought of singing in front of a group of people, but now feels more confident that she'll be able to do it.
Lindsay Pardee (Her voice teacher): "Sophie is an extremely determined and hard working young lady who never lets a mistake deter her from continuing through a song or lesson. With every correction or new technique I give her, she not only picks it up, but she retains the information week after week. I look forward to continuing being apart of Sophie's growth as a musician!"
