Famous Singers who all use Breath Control Differently

Student Spotlight: Catherine M.

Cate has been training as a vocal student for the past 6 years, and it’s been an absolute pleasure watching her grow up. She’s become a fixture at every recital, and it’s hard to imagine someone more prepared, enthusiastic, and poised on stage.

Hard Songs to Sing: Shallow, by Lady Gaga

Hard Songs to Sing: Shallow, by Lady Gaga

After the award-winning remake of A Star is Born was released, “Shallow,” the movie’s central musical theme, was catapulted to widespread popularity. I began getting a lot of requests to sing it, from female solos, to mixed gender duets. It quickly became clear that “Shallow” isn’t quite as easy as Gaga makes it sound and that it deserves a place in our Hard Songs to Sing collection.

About Us

We are a music school dedicated to you and your passion.

We’re a nonprofit singing and artist development school based in Orange County whose goal it is to teach you the styles and techniques you want to learn. We shape well-rounded musicians out of all sorts of people: young, not-so-young, pre-professional, and casual.

Molly’s Music is part of a larger nonprofit called CultureHum Foundation. Proceeds from our services help fund thousands of dollars worth of scholarship music lessons each year, along with an in-school tutoring program called The Open Education Project that gives high school students second chances.

Molly’s Music was founded by Molly Webb, a singer and pianist whose musical journey spans 2.5 decades. It became her mission to provide students with the opportunity to get such a flexible education in one place. And so here we are.
