Mia Vrablic, 15, came to music through singing, but she also learned to play guitar, which has helped her become a songwriter. She’s come a long way since she took her first steps toward performance.

“I participated in one of my school’s musicals on a whim and fell in love with performing,” Vrablic said. “I didn’t have any training. I just knew I liked to sing. That was about five years ago. I started taking voice lessons shortly after that for four years, and I definitely think that helped expand my knowledge of singing. But later on I realized I wanted to accomplish more.”

As she continued to learn through her schooling and lessons, Vrablic found a teacher who provided another  facet for her talents.

“When I entered high school, I joined my high school’s show choir,” she said. “In that class my teacher, Jaime Macklin, gave us music theory books. I have learned so much through her exercises, her teachings, and those frustrating theory books. Later on I took songwriting lessons to expand my knowledge even more. I took those lessons with Marnée August. She taught me so much and I really appreciate those classes because they helped me discover me.”

Although her journey seems headed toward that of a singer/songwriter, Vrablic has enjoyed her opportunities to work with others.

“I think my biggest ambition right now is to write songs for all different genres and people. I hope in the future I can sing and perform my own songs to maybe inspire people to follow their dreams or to help people that need an escape from their everyday lives.”
