Are you currently taking music lessons online? Is your mum perhaps nagging at you for not putting in enough practice? Or perhaps you are the mum, proud of your offsprings natural talent but frustrated with their unwillingness to nurture it.
In this weeks WOW Music News, we prove that when it comes to music, mum really does know best.
Meet Shukrananda Gant, aged 29 and currently working as a vocal coach in Oxfordshire. Shukrananda has always showed promise as a musician and singer. Indeed ten years ago she was offered a record contract. Yet upon reading the details, it seemed she was signing her life away and so she decided to help others realise their musical capabilities instead.
At Christmas, Shukrananda visited her mum in Lincoln. During her visits she has often attended the nearby cathedral and sat down and played at one of the chapel’s pianos.
However, during this years visit, Shukrananda had taken her mother along with her. And when she sat down to play a song she had just written, her mum decided it needed to be filmed…
Secretly recording her daughters beautiful performance, Karen Courtney uploaded the song to Facebook. The song titled New Beginnings, has since attracted 28,000 views, along with many positive comments.

The positive feedback from the uploaded video has spurred Shukrananda to reconsider her own career choices. Currently she is helping others to perform professionally and to develop their careers, however she has now decided that it could be time to nurture her own creativity.
Her proud mum stated that she has been telling her daughter that she has a beautiful voice for many years. She hopes the positive feedback from the video will help Shukrananda believe this and go on to explore her musical talents.
