What's Our End Game?

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”

-Bob Marley

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish. We want to make sure our students are learning the instrument and all relevant items to the best of their ability. In our program, we want to place our students in positions where they have to learn how to make wise decisions. Ultimately, we want our students to become better students and, over time, responsible people who change the world!
