Music credits

Mia\'s Main ambitions fell within the music industry she was lead vocalist for the London Dance band\"Stone Drive\" playing major venues in London and the UK. She recorded 2 singles for mainstream dance album \"Havin\" It\', and released an EP that became a big hit with DJ\'s in the dance world, called \"Free\' Her next album was Virtual Glam which was picked up by Paul Coussins Polydor . Under Coussins\'s guidance Mia and her sister Laura, who had just come out of a 3 year deal with Mercury Records with her band Kick Angel joined forces in 2002. They both had the same training, played the piano and loved to sing, they always talked of doing something together at some point, and now seemed like a good time. Originally it all started with Coussins developing a musical about Carol King and her album Tapestry. Once working together,  they started to write together. The two sisters started writing together under the management of Andros Georgio, who had previously worked with George Michael for 15 years. They were offered a publishing deal from Universal and have been working with different producers and artists and in and out of recording studios ever since

Mia, Laura & PSSA

Since graduating from college the girls had always taught singing, dance or drama at different schools around London. They decided that with their experience of the music and musical theatre industries, and their years of teaching they wanted to open their own school. The Pop School and Stage Academy and Little Luvvies was then founded.

\"What we have learnt is invaluable. We want to give P.S.S.A. students the chance to gain the knowledge that we didn\'t have before we started working professionally. You have to know how it works \'out there\' to be a good teacher. We are very excited about the prospect for The Pop School and Stage Academy in the future. We have created a formula for the classes which keeps each term exciting and fresh. With some terms dedicated to teaching techniques and other terms working towards a big show in a theatre – the kids just love it !!\"
