We believe that creating music is the most powerful way to learn. It fosters consistent work habits and tangible achievements, improves physical coordination, and encourages cooperation with others. Center Stage is dedicated to nurturing these skills at an early age so that children can discover music as a non-verbal, universal language and an outlet for self-expression.
Whether you are looking for a weekly academic curriculum or just a one-time session, Center Stage will work with you to create the ultimate learning experience. Each package can be fully customized to accommodate all ages, group sizes, and experience levels.
All Center Stage programs are taught and performed by Soyulla Artists, a roster of young, vibrant performing artists who are active professionals in their area of expertise. They have earned degrees from top conservatories and performed on renowned stages worldwide, yet they are equally passionate about sharing their knowledge and talent with students of all ages. They have extensive teaching experience and are committed to making the learning process enjoyable as well as informative. Their ability, experience, energy, and warm personalities truly set them apart from many otherwise talented educators.
Center Stage is a division of Soyulla Artists, which was founded by Juilliard alumna Jae M. Shin in 2001.
Soyulla represents the finest artists currently on the world's greatest stages-- Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Broadway, and beyond. They have trained at prestigious conservatories including Curtis, Juilliard, and Eastman, and have collaborated with the biggest names in music: Elton John, Blondie, Florence and the Machine, Yo-Yo Ma, Bernadette Peters, and Eric Clapton, just to name a few.
At Soyulla, our motto is "We bring the arts to you!". We offer services in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Jersey City, and other parts of the NYC metro area.
