Welcome! BJ Simon Singing Studio & Music School

Do you want to front a rock band?  Solo with an a cappella group?  Perform R&B songs on TV?  You need high-quality music school vocal training, with an emphasis on musical theater, to give you an advantage.  There are rock musicals (Rent), pop musicals (Kinky Boots), the first a cappella musical (In Transit), and the new, ten Tony Award-winning Arabian musical (The Band's Visit), all made by songwriters who adapt their sound to the musical's storytelling style.  What is the advantage of studying musical theater?  When you are telling your own story in a song, your voice connects with your mind, body, and spirit.
