Shania's Story

My passion is singing.

Singing became my passion when I was about seven or eight. I would sing throughout the house, and my family realized I had a gift. But, I was too shy to tell other people, so I used to sing in the school bathroom when no one was there. I'm scared people will say I cant sing, but I'm confident in my voice. I know that my talent will lead me to great places.

I will develop my passion by attending Tomato House of Rock Summer Recording Programs because I will learn how to write lyrics to songs and record them. I will be able to get a sense of what the music industry is like and try to figure out my future plans as an artist. Additionally, I will be able to build my confidence by expressing myself through songs.

A Note from Ms. Stewart, Shania's Teacher

"Shania is a very out-spoken and self-confident person, but she is not used to performing for others, and she gets nervous when she feels like she's putting on a performance. I believe that Tomato House of Rock Summer Recording Programs will be a good opportunity for her to get more comfortable performing in front of other people and feeling confident about sharing her talents."

Great time at Tomato House Of Rock

It was so fun hanging out with Tomato and all the other staff members at Tomato House Of Rock. I had a great time with all the students, and we really bonded. The first two days of the camp I was too scared to sing, but when I got used to the people and the vibe of the people around me it became easy to sing and just relax with them. We all had a true connection, I loved having them around, and truly I really miss them all.
