Imagine Music Academy has combined teaching vocals with an “On-Stage Experience”. The students will be instructed in a stage environment with stage lights, a sound system, and their own microphone.

Amid the store's array of new instruments, vintage instruments, and even some vintage skirts, Fanny and her staff of experienced musicians will help you learn the basics of your preferred instrument. Under their careful tutelage, you'll learn to harness the funk as it escapes your heart, travels through your bloodstream, and wafts out of your finger-pores in a funk mist. At Fanny's House of Music, budding musicians can take the first step of a glamorous journey that will have them rapidly ascending to rock stardom, weathering their band’s unfortunate yet predictable break-up, and reluctantly joining a reunion tour that will pay off their debts and gain a new legion of Japanese fans.

The notes that flow out of Angelia Williams’s mouth began touring the country while she was just a young child. Those notes also spent time inside a recording studio and now thrill children’s ears at The Voice Studio of Angelia Williams. She uses her notes to help train amateur singers and teach kids about music. During classes, pre-kindergarteners to sixth graders learn melody structure, piano skills, vocal techniques, and music theories such as whether or not Barney lip-syncs his songs.
When Nashville Demo Studio speaks of its team of hit songwriters and industry professionals, it is no idle boast. Company president and showbiz veteran Jimi Whitelaw oversees a staff that includes Will Rambeaux—who has worked for Faith Hill, Trick Pony, and American Idol—and Billy Montana, whose recent collaborators include Lee Greenwood, Kenny Chesney, and Martina McBride. The studio also supplies instrumentation, vocals, and recording opportunities while leaving copyright ownership and distribution rights firmly in their clients’ hands. Though the stable of musicians skews to Southern-fried genres, they can also ably handle pop, R & B, and countrified interpretations of whale calls. All services are available both in person and online via Skype.
