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.


Zander Guevara, an Advanced Piano and Advanced Choir student has been excelling in music for seven years at Rosie’s House. His accolades include performing at the 2019 Rosie’s House Ovation Gala and with the Advanced Choir at the 2019 Association of American Medical Colleges national conference attended by over 4,000 doctors and medical professionals from across the country.

“I have been fortunate enough to practice piano and choir at Rosie’s House. Through my lessons, I have learned the skills of discernment and discipline. I learned the importance of communication and communal learning. In choir, each member is responsible for their own part. By having an understanding of how everyone works together, we are able to create music.”
