WHAT IS TWEENATION?

“THE TALENT CODE”, A #1 New York best seller book on the development of the talented brain, names Septien Entertainmnt Group as the top music training studio in the World. Because of the success of the 5-year Master Program in artist development for singers between 13 – 18 years old.

Septien launched a similar program for tweens  6 – 13 years old.. In the Talent Code, the four Nobel Peace Prize winning scientists have discovered that it takes 10,000 hours to make talent professionally competitive. These same skills have been determined to slide into any leadership role in career choices. SEG teachers average 12 years teaching with our company and have been thoroughly trained in both puberty and adult voice technique for the modern commercial singer! With over 16k to its legacy, SEG has had amazing success with both tween and teen singers!

The Tweenation Program was born from the trend of younger singers being offered singing careers at earlier ages. If our younger singers were not trained as vocal athletes to withstand the rigorous amounts of performance time of both training their bodies and vocal instruments, as well as stage presence, their vocal ability would suffer greatly.

There is HUGE need for younger artists in the entertainment World. It is not for every family, but for those that enjoy travel and talented young artists, we can pave the road ahead!

Tweenation Program is not for learning to sing, but learning to be a leader, a CEO and not being afraid of the public eye. It is learning how to work with a team, marketing coaches and the world of the music business.
