Practicing and performing music builds the character of our students, and allows them to develop skills such as teamwork, discipline, perseverance and how to set and achieve goals. Learning to play a musical instrument takes years of dedication, and learning the focus and diligence necessary to accomplish this feat builds the character of our students.

She graduated from Xavier College Prep this year and now plans to attend ASU to study music.

“I was never really confident in myself as a kid. When I was younger, I wanted to be courageous enough to be on stage. Through amazing instructors and opportunities, I learned to believe in myself. They pushed me, encouraging me to step out of the box and look at the world in multicolored glasses.”
