I graduated from Chatfield High School in Littleton. I went to University of Northern Colorado for two years then transferred to Metropolitan State.
I was an elementary school teacher for five years. I stayed at home with my kids for a while and owned a Dairy Queen in Littleton for some time. I then got into the corporate world and worked as a program manager for a surrogacy company based out of Boston. I worked from home here.
I opened Headliners Vocals in September of 2016.
Bringing music to kids
Between my husband and I, we have five kids and they are all musically inclined. What we were after was an after-school program for our kids where they could get music coaching in an environment that was really upbeat with current music. We looked around and couldn’t find anything like that.
We envisioned a place where parents and kids would come in and say, “This is an awesome place to be.” We definitely are not boring here at Headliners Vocals. We want the kids to feel like rock stars. The kids are under the lights and on stage when they are practicing.
The bulk of our business is choir classes. We have nearly 40 choir classes happening after school and on Saturday mornings. We also offer private lessons — we have five private teachers. We have two recording booths here in our studios so kids can record what they are working on and take it home on a disc to track their progress.
Our first concert is coming up on Feb. 25. We haven’t finalized the location yet, but we are looking at ThunderRidge and Mountain Vista high schools.
Starting my business
One thing that has been really meaningful to me is that so many parents have come in and said that they have been trying to find something that their kid can really connect with. They are constantly thanking us for providing this space because the kids are excited to come here — they have found their passion.
