Cailyn Breski Accepted to Drew University
Cailyn Breski is a senior at Southern Lehigh High School who plans on attending Drew University in Madison NJ for Neuroscience and Music Therapy, having obtained scholarships for science and vocal performance. Cailyn’s goal is to work with diseases and disorders of the brain, utilizing music as a healing modality. Her foray into the music world began when she started taking voice lessons from June Thomas at The Lesson Center in Coopersburg during her sophomore year in high school. This culminated in her first performance in front of a live audience at Mayfair in May of 2011. Since then Cailyn has formed her own band, Blind Lights, with friends she met while studying at The Lesson Center and has performed in many venues across the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey, including Musikfest, Blue Mountain Ski resort, opening for Aaron Carter at Crocodile Rock to name a few.
In addition to her acceptance at Drew, Cailyn received a governor’s scholarship for her vocal talents. She attributes that success to her work with her private instructor, June Thomas, as well as the scholarship application assistance she received from TLC voice instructor, Phil Diaz.
We’re so happy for Cailyn and for this great evidence that private music education has it’s rewards — professionally, personally and even monetarily!
