Overture Strings. "I just want to say that it was an honor for my daughter to be part of the strings. She learned a lot and now knows what she wants when she goes to college. I hope this program continues. With all my heart thank you so much." “Semantiene ocupado y no mira tanta television y video os juegos.” (He keeps himself busy and doesn't watch so much television and video games.)
It sounds cliché to say that the experiences of our youth stay with us throughout adulthood. What sort of difference does music education make in the life of a child? What difference does it make what a teacher might say to a student? What lessons could possibly be learned from a performing arts education? Turns out, A LOT.
