​"Since taking lessons at Center Stage Music Nicole has greater stage presence, richer tone, and convey's deeper emotions so much that the audience feels as if they are part of the experience! 

With experiences in the Elite Team and private voice, Nicole now performs as an opening act in Branson and performs in  Nashville where she is known in musical circles. Thanks   Center Stage Music and Staff!”

"Chenille has been an incredible influence in my life and is an amazing roll model in every way!

Today I want to be 
an actress & drama professor mostly due to the love for music inspired by her and my memories from Center Stage."

"...out of all the studios I attend throughout Canada and the United 
States, Chenille's students emerge as a complete package and are 
prepared to step onto the professional stage.”
