This past Saturday, the children of Carolyn Davis’ Making It Happen School of Music and Technology, showcased their talents to friends and family at Merrell United Methodist Church.
Children as young as five years old played classic Christmas songs including Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, on keyboards, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, saxophone and violin.
The Making It Happen School also featured voice talents, including 11-year-old, Taiga Clescar, who sang Car Ride, a song self-written by Davis and Clescar and produced through Davis’ production company, Corbros Music.
Car Ride is a contemporary R&B song about taking a fun ride with friends and is currently available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, & CDBaby.com.
The Making It Happen School was founded in 2006 due to Davis’ passion of spreading music throughout the Black community showcasing the children. “They have to dress up, like really dress up so they can know what it feels like to perform for an audience, they can learn that feeling and be proud,” Davis said.
And proud they were and they should’ve been. Some students like, 13-year-old Nathaniel Noel who plays electric guitar amongst other instruments, Noesha Noel, 14, and babysister Nyla Noel, six, who both play keyboard, have only been playing for three months but, you couldn’t tell it.
Through her music school, Carolyn Davis is enriching the communities of Broward as she always had. We laughed as we talked about how almost every student who has come through Broward Estates Elementary, Parkway Middle and Dillard High School in the last 15 years have been touched by Davis’ music in one way or another, I would know, I was one of them.
The Making It Happen School of Music and Technology takes students aged 5 to adulthood and the winter session of music training begins January 5, 2015. Please visit MakingIt06Happen.com or call (954) 733-1760 for more information.
