I can't say enough good thing about ATA. We're lucky to have them here locally. It's a great organization with terrific and extremely talented staff who love what they do and very dedicated to the community.
My Daughter and I sing, dance and make music every week with Apple Tree Arts. I can see the joy on her face and I know it helps the way she learns music and everything else. I can't think of a better way to spend my time. I love Apple Tree Arts.
I have seen this organization totally from the outside. The motivation of the staff of this group to provide music education to their community has been wonderful. In this era of declining public education in this area, this group has stepped up to provide a cultural resource to the whole community. I have nothing but praise for the founders and participants in Apple Tree Arts.
My daughters have participated in many of the ATA theater and music programs. It started when my youngest was a baby and we went to Tots & Tunes. Now they all love the musical/theater programs. What I love best about their school year shows and summer camps is that everyone who signs up is a valuable partipant in the show. They also learn all the aspects of theatre, down to make-up and set design. The programs ATA offers are really learning experiences.
Apple Tree Arts is a wonderful organization. It is a top-notch organization from Executive Director Donna Blanchard all the way through the entire staff. These people LOVE what they do and have brought their love of the arts to Grafton and its' surrounding towns. There is something for everyone and each instructor meets their students with excitement and enthusiasm. My hope for ATA is that they can continue to grow their organization until their biggest dreams are realized!
The quality of music education at Apple Tree Arts is impressive, and I feel so lucky to have been able to have my children gain confidence, develop socialization skills, learn about music...and have tons of fun! I also believe that the things they have learned about music through Apple Tree Arts help them in countless ways in their non-musical activities. I'm a huge ATA fan!!!
