Michaela at Holiday on Blvd 12-12-10It's the Holiday Season.  Leave your stressors behind and just sing! 

Studies have shown that singing relieves tension and lowers levels of stress, creating a feeling of relaxation.  It promotes social interaction, and more.  When you concentrate on singing, or on learning a new song, your brain power kicks in, memory is strengthened, and you really don't have time to "worry." 

So tune up your voice, call a few friends to join you, and come out and sing.  No singing experience needed.  For more information, call (504) 569-9070.
