The Hummingbird Conservatory
Music is moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. - Plato
A 501©3 non-profit, The Hummingbird Conservatory is a music school dedicated to the training and development of singers of all ages, with all levels of ability and training across all genres. We seek to provide conservatory-level training in a warm, wonderful, creative atmosphere fostering not just musical abilities but leadership skills, confidence and discipline.
Founder and voice teacher Tara Wallace is in her 25th year of singing training and began the Hummingbird Conservatory with two objectives – provide singers with excellent vocal technique and musicianship while giving them ample performance opportunities and collaborative experiences with other musicians and performers. Now embarking on its fourth year, The Hummingbird Conservatory has continued to fulfill its mission. Its singers have been seen performing at New York's famed Carnegie Hall and London's Royal Festival Hall in National Honors choirs at both the middle school and high school level as well as on the LA Opera stage, in regional, community and school performances, including the Glendale Center Theatre, Panic! Productions, the West Valley Playhouse, the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) Summer Program, Escape! Theatricals, the LA Opera Summer Vocal Program, the Montrose Oktoberfest, the Montrose Christmas Tree Lighting, and the LA Opera 90001 Program to name only a few! Students from the Hummingbird Conservatory have been accepted into some of the most prestigious collegiate programs in the country, including USC's School for Dramatic Arts, Loyola - Chicago, and San Gabriel School for the Performing Arts. Students of Hummingbird are musically affluent in other instruments and ensembles as well appearing with the Los Angeles Children's Chorus and several notable honors orchestras. They have also performed in their school talent shows, advanced choirs at Rosemont Middle School AND Crescenta Valley High school, church performances and summer camps. Some have even appeared on KTLA news, the LA Times and on the cover of the Malibu Times!
