Performance Workshop A Great Success!
Our Performance/Movement workshop, held on December 15 with Montclair State University acting professor, Susan Knight Carlin, was a huge success. During the workshop, which was filled to capacity, Ms. Knight Carlin worked with each student to demonstrate performance preparation and technique, review each student’s performance of a prepared piece, and provide feedback designed to help them with stage presence and overall performance technique. The progress was evident for students who had recitals the following day!
The workshop was live streamed on Facebook so you can check it out for yourself! https://www.facebook.com/nutleyschoolofmusic/videos/354376798458697/
We look forward to providing future opportunities and workshops for our students.
Hal Leonard Vocal Competition
If you love to sing, you may want to consider entering the 2019 Hal Leonard Vocal competition.
The annual Hal Leonard Vocal Competition was founded in 2011 to encourage young singers from all over North America, from children through college undergraduates. Thousands of singers have participated in the competition, with top placing videos from 35 states and provinces, and over 40 colleges and universities. The Hal Leonard Vocal Competition was one of the first music competitions held entirely on YouTube.
Unlike almost every other music competition, there is no entry fee in the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition so that young singers from any location in North America are able to enter without the expense of travel to an audition site. And singers can view and hear on YouTube others from around the U.S. and Canada who are in their own age group.
The areas of participation include the art song genre as well as musical theatre, with four age categories for each:
We are proud to already have one winner, Nutley School of Music voice student, Maya Price, who placed 2nd in the Musical Theater Category for High School Voices in 2018, and we'd love to see more!
If you're interested, talk to your teacher about entering and click here for more information.

Win a $5,000 Music Contract in Song Writing Competition
Calling all high school song writers, please check out this important song writing competition!
Created in 2005, New Jersey Shout Down Drugs challenges high school students to create original music and lyrics with powerful substance abuse prevention messages to allow teens to deliver the prevention message to each other through their favorite medium of music. County Finalists are chosen by peer judges to perform their original songs at the Annual Statewide Prevention Concert, held in May, at a state-of-the-art venue. First, second and third place winners are chosen by a panel of judges that night to receive music contracts worth $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 respectively to perform their winning songs at different events throughout the state during the year. Through this website the public is invited to vote for their favorite songs by participating in two phases of online voting. Since 2010, when the online voting began, hundreds of thousands of votes have been cast.
