IMTA - A Parent's Perspective

IMTA was pleased to receive the following message from the parent of one of our IMTA New York 2015 Contestants:

"My son was in NYC last week for IMTA. To be honest, we had no idea what to expect. We are from Iowa and have a very limited knowledge of the industry so we really had no expectations other than to learn about what IMTA was and learn more about the talent and singing business. Because of the cost, I had done a lot of research and was very nervous from what I had read on the internet. However, this was by far the best money we have ever spent on our son. It gave him so much information (the workshops) and allowed him to compete with other talent from all over the world. He would have never had that opportunity where we live. It was amazing and I learned so much as a parent.

My son is 18 and I did not want to just send him off to NYC or LA to pursue his dreams and watch him struggle. I appreciated how much I heard from the presenters on the value of education. My son had a wonderful experience and will still attend the university he had planned to this fall but is already in contact with several other people about what may be in his future. To you IMTA, we are thankful for the opportunities that were given to us through this experience."

Special thanks to Ms. Jennifer Downs for graciously allowing us to share her message.  Her son Ridg Downs competed at IMTA with The Peak Agency of Des Moines, IA.
