The survey’s in, and it says people fear the stage more than they fear death. We think that statistic is insane, so we’re working to change it, one happy performer at a time. On top of private performance and audition coaching, we offer a variety of opportunities for adults, teens, and kids to perform in a confidence-boosting, supportive setting.
Local Auditions & Performances
Outside venues often get in touch with us when they need performers, and we pass these opportunities on to the students we think might benefit. We’ve sent students to skip the line at American Idol, perform in televised talent shows.
We have some great resources on our blog, check them out!
Molly’s Music Recitals
Seasonal Recitals for Kids and Teens
You bring the talent, and we’ll bring the refreshments. Our recitals are open to any student under 18 who has a song to sing or play. Each recital is between an hour and 90-minutes long, which we’ve determined is the best length for impatient younger siblings and busy schedules. We hold 3 studio-wide recitals a year and one smaller instrumental recital.
Before each studio-wide recital, we hold our Masterclass, led by some of our top teachers to give students an extra boost of confidence before going up in front of a larger audience.
Instrumental Only Recital
Since our seasonal recitals are often fairly vocal-centric, we added our annual Instrumental Only Recital. If you’re a pianist, guitarist, sitar player, or theremin aficionado come on down and share a tune!
A more casual, intimate performance than our Kid-Teen Recitals, our Teen-Adult Showcases usually take place twice at a year at one of our studios or at a local venue like a hip coffee house or laid-back restaurant. Everyone is supportive, and we all enjoy nursing beverages and snacks amongst friends and family.
Studio M is our after-school pop performance class. Students learn healthy commercial voice technique, stage presence, and mic technique, all while making friends and collaborating with peers. If you’d like to see a Studio M class at your school, be sure to get in touch!
Broadway on the Bay
If it’s easier for you to see yourself defying gravity under New York City lights than rockin’ the Staples Center with Adele, our Broadway on the Bay Camp might be more your speed. Students will get a great weeklong intro into the world of Broadway that includes musical theatre vocal technique, acting, performance practice, and lots of individualized attention. At the end, every student will perform a Broadway solo and act in a scene they present for family and friends in a fun musical revue.
Pop Star Camp
In the summer, we offer Pop Star Camp, a week of learning the craft of commercial music singing culminating in a fun performance for parents and friends complete with a live band. Students learn contemporary singing techniques, performance techniques, and song interpretation while collaborating with other musicians and making like-minded friends.

From Our Founder
Many people mistakenly believe that you’re either born a singer or not. This is simply not true. There are so many coordinations that go into singing, from pitch matching, to breath support, to soft palate and tongue control. While these things may come easier and earlier to some than others, the bottom line is that they are skills that can be learned. If I can leave you with one piece of advice, it’s that you can learn to sing, and we’d love to be the ones to help you discover your voice.

Performance opportunities can be as important in your musical development as the lessons themselves. At Molly’s Music we offer at least 6 recitals per year, 3 Kid-Teen ones, 2 Teen-Adult ones, and an Instrumental Only Recital.
Pop Star Camp
Our annual week-long pop vocal performance camp. You’ll make new friends, learn some great vocal technique, and work on the craft of commercial music performance. The class culminates in a Spotlight Performance, in which each student shows off his or her own solo. Class sizes cap at 12 to make sure each student gets plenty of personalized attention.
