I know this is a LOT of information, and it can seem overwhelming- but I am here to answer any questions, address any concerns, or just offer reassurances or a kind word. This trip and the memories these students will make will provide benefits that have visible, audible, long-lasting, and most of all positive effects on their musical and academic achievements. I am excited to get to work making this a reality for your children.
