Big Smile Entertainment seeks male/female singers for seasonal Christmas caroling.
We provide traditional christmas caroling all over New England: MA, CT, RI, NH, NY, ME. If you love Christmas and singing carols, this could be the perfect seasonal job for you.
Big Smile seeks singers who can read music or have a good ear. We can provide you with a practice CD, sheet music and your costume. The schedule is very flexible. Once hired, you receive an e-mail daily with the open gigs. You reply only to those you are interested in. You will know all about the gig including where it is and what it pays before you tell us you are interested in being placed on that gig. Very flexible! All we ask is that once you commit to a gig, you stay committed. You are required to learn your music on your own, so NO rehearsals! You carry your music book (which we provide) so no memorizing. Very fun, good pay and a great way to meet other singers. You need a reliable car, and a positive attitude, and you must be responsible, be professional and be on time!
If you are interested: send your resume (a bio or brief description of your background as a singer), a photo of you and a sample of your singing. So, if you have a video or audio of yourself send that. You can easily create one on your smart phone too. Since we all sing a cappella, just sing a Christmas song, download and send it to BigSmileProductions@yahoo.com.

Hamula Voice Studio, www.HamulaVoice.com. Located in Fair Lawn, NJ, Julie-Anne Hamula has been teaching Advanced to Beginning Vocalists for nearly 10 years. She seeks to grow and develop each of her student’s voices with an understanding that no two instruments are alike. In order to train one’s physical voice, it is necessary to do vocal exercises, in the same way that one needs to train at a gym. There is no "magic key" to unlock one's voice; it is a matter of daily practice and muscle strengthening/stretching. As it is impossible to separate one’s technique from expression, technical exercises combine expressive elements so that when a singer is singing, they can focus on what really matters--communication. As a professional opera singer, Julie-Anne has performed leading roles with many regional companies including Opera Naples, Cape Cod Opera, and The Light Opera of New York, in addition to winning several prestigious competitions, including the Jenny Lind Competition, and The Marcella Sembrich Competition. You can contact Julie-Anne via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 609-439-7850.
