This is Lollipop and I outside one of our vacation care centres in QLD. We sure do have fun encouraging the kids!
Hi! My names Lauren, Bachelor of Music graduate, singer songwriter, children’s entertainer extraordinaire and vocal coach.
When I was a child I loved to perform. Any chance I got, I was on the stage: whether that platform was merely a set up in our very own lounge room at home or at school in drama class, I loved to sing, dance and act. Through life’s circumstances I lost that childhood confidence, whether it be the kids at school or people around me, but I somehow lost my voice. I never felt that I was good enough, and didn’t want to try for the fear of failing.
I have been running Make me a ROCKSTAR since 2011, starting with just Rockstar parties and then branching off into different characters, school holiday workshops, visiting pre-schools and schools, doing shows, working with children with special needs, discos, vocal tuition and recording parties and packages.
It is such an honour to inspire children to break out of their shell and be everything they are called to be. I am often confronted with the reality of kids that don’t know who they are and don’t know that they have a voice. Countless stories of kids who get told that they can’t sing, that they don’t have a voice, the streamed cultural message that they’re not good enough.
And yet that couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s a timeless message, an important truth that every child needs to hear.. that they ARE good enough just the way they are. That they don’t need to be anyone else, they are unique and can shine in who they are. Through our stories in the Rainbow Backpack series, and our various services we are able to teach that timeless message.. plus putting a smile on their face puts a smile on ours too!
I have a voice and so do these kids. I love being one answer to their millions of soul searching questions. I love standing in the gap for those kids that just need someone to believe in them. I love being a mentor, voice coach & encouragement to them. I love that I get to draw out their inner voice, creativity and confidence, and to show them they are indeed believed in!
So if you know a child who loves to perform or is just a little bit shy like I was, I would love to chat to you! Call, email or fill in the below form and we can chat 🙂
