Coffeeni Up-Coming Generation Artists-Musicians



La CoffeeMelodie Suite

...Coffeeni...


As professional artists, while we continue our performing career, we cannot forget that there is already the next generation waiting to be educated, constructed, nurtured, and prepared to become our up-coming artists and musicians.


Coffeeni Up-Coming Generation Artists-Musicians. We build the love of performing arts through music education.


Coffeeni is a division in LCMS that works in conjunction with Core Melody and Coffee Programs


It is set up to give education and training to our youth and to prepare them for their future career. While we seek, build, nurture and watch the growth of our young artists and musicians-in-training through our music classes and activities, we provide for them a place to 'hang out' - a comfort zone so the youngsters can share their stories and form a good relationship among each other.



La Coffeemelodie Suite



A young artist/musician who is Core Melody voice student or Coffee Programs participant, is invited and encouraged to participate on our online forum Artists of the Up-Coming Generation Revealed. Our young artists can share and compare their music experiences, from performing onstage, working behind the scene, or being a part of the orchestra. They can also discuss music topics, post questions, embed videos and pictures.

Getting Started

La CoffeeMelodie Suite

Sometimes, the easiest thing for a musician to do is to make music. After all, it's really a labor of love. On the other hand, one of the very hardest things to do in music is to find - and take advantage of - those opportunities to perform. As in any endeavor one must start at the lowest rung and work up, but unfortunately the competition in the arts is so great that it's often hard just to get in at the bottom.

There are no guarantees. You may not get into a good school, you may not be granted auditions, you may never be hired to perform. There is always that feeling of a Catch-22, where you don't have the experience or background to be considered for anything, and you can't get it since no one will give you the chance.

Two things come to mind: first, you must love music. It must be a passion for you, and not a job. Not only will passion make you a real artist, but if it's lacking then there's no reason (unless you have absolutely prodigious talent, and that's awfully rare) to pursue such a finicky path in life.





Second, you must find a way to enter into the musical community to enable opportunity to find you. In part, this is accomplished by making personal contacts with those already within it. Of course, not everyone has this kind of access: Do you know any professional violinists or singers?

You can, though, also improve your standing as a musician by undertaking efforts to improve yourself as an artist. This means taking an active role in your personal betterment - taking lessons, joining groups, attending performances, making contacts, reading about music, thinking critically about yourself as a performer and taking criticisms not as attacks but as learning opportunities. These are not always the easiest things in the world to do, but if you want to perform you first have to be known by those people organizing performances, and you must be known in a positive light.

There is no "right" path to success, save that a traveler must keep moving forward toward it. You can enjoy the flowers on the side of the road for awhile, but if you stop then that's as far as you'll go until such time- if ever- you decide to get moving again. So, if you want to improve, take that next step down the road toward where you want to be.
