I really enjoy my private classes with Mandi. Our time together gives me a chance to think musically, to use a creative side of my personality that yearns to express itself.

I've always been impressed with how music reaches these children.

Some of these children need aides with them, some do not. Over the course of a few months I have seen so many changes and improvements in all of these children, it really is mind-blowing.
