Calendar of Events

“Music has impacted my life by helping me do well. Ever since I was a child, my Uncle would play the ukulele. He would sing to me when I was feeling down or when I’m going to bed...

Music will help me, my family, school and community and I hope to use this opportunity of being in band to help get me to college and a scholarship. (The) hope of getting into a good college and university will help me find a career which will be good if I plan to have a family in the future.”
