Check out this crop of locally grown talent

This year, the Lake Geneva House of Music will sponsor and coordinate a showcase of outstanding local talent on what’s been known as the Pepsi Stage.

            Chris Buttleman, owner of the Lake Geneva House of Music, said he’s looking forward to showcasing some of his students and teachers on stage at the Walworth County Fair.

            “We’ve got some great up and coming talent: Adia Fuller, Nick Brose, Claire Kelly and John Hainstock, to mention a few,” Buttleman said.

            Buttleman and Brose will act as the hosts and introduce the performers. Musicians will perform 40-minute sets every hour.

            “We’re hoping to have a tent to the side of the stage where we’ll give little mini music lessons to anyone interested.”?Buttleman said.

            The Lake Geneva House of Music is a performance-based music school providing lessons for vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and more. Groups of students work with each other and learn from each other as they perform. Groups are loosely based on age.

            Think “School of Rock.” In that 2003 film, Jack Black plays a struggling rock singer and guitarist, Dewey Finn, who is kicked out of his band. He becomes a substitute teacher at a prep school and forms a rag-tag band of fourth graders. The film was the highest grossing musical comedy of all time until it was overrun by “Pitch Perfect 2.”

            The Lake Geneva House of Music doesn’t limit itself to rock music or preppy students; instructors ply their trade in all genres, working with all types of students. Check out the Lake Geneva House of Music stage at the Walworth County Fair -- you just might get the itch to pick a banjo, pluck a guitar, pound a drum or stretch those vocal chords by singing out loud.
