From Mark: I loved seeing the students discover songwriting, playing the ukuleles and learning how to record on the workstations. They all have such talent and beautiful music in their souls, and they were so brave to let their original songs come out for all the world to hear.

From LaVonne: My favorite moment with my class was the day we went outside to paint. It allowed to kids to relax outside of the confines of the classroom and just have fun, get messy and create. I got to spend time with each student individually and learn more about them and their stories.
