My 19 month old attends the Kids-N-Tunes program and thoroughly enjoys it. The teachers are very engaged with the children and are excellent in providing the students with an excellent learning environment for music appreciation.

My 15-month old loves his Kids-n-Tunes weekly music class. We're in our 3rd repeat session of the class, and it's amazing how he smiles and dances when music is played. His curiosity of how the different instruments work is growing too. Last week he attempted to strum the guitar. I look forward to signing him for art and theater classes as he gets older. What a great community resource!

Our family is so grateful to have this outstanding arts center as part of our Lakewood community. There is something for everyone! You'll find what you want even if you've never held a paintbrush, put on a pair of tap shoes or picked-up an instrument; if your dream it is to be a prima ballerina or professional musician; if you want to see a Broadway quality production or laugh hysterically at improv comedy. It is all there, right in my backyard! We have been attending classes and performances at the Beck Center for over 10 years, and we are always extremely pleased with the professionalism of the Beck Center staff and the high quality production value of all Beck Center performances.

No organization which holds indecent and offensive productions such as "Jerry Springer: The Opera" deserves your support.

Beck Center is an great organization that provides quality arts experiences at a great value. Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner, young or old there is always something new and challenging to find on stage or in a classroom.

Arts organizations like Beck Center are essential to providing students with opportunities to explore their creative side and develop important life skills especially in areas where schools are limiting or no longer providing arts education and experiences to their students and communities.

Beck puts on consistently top knotch shows for the public. You cannot beat the price as compared to Cleveland's downtown theatre district. The Center is easily accessed ib west Lakewood and the parking is free too! I love supporting the Beck Center in Lakewood.

Beck Center has become a very special place for my family. My children love the classes, and the entire family enjoys the exceptional theater.

Before my daughter was diagnosed with ADHD, she had a very difficult time fitting in at school. But she never had a problem at the Beck Center. She excelled in her art classes and found a place she could be herself in the theater classes. It's a safe place for her and for the many other creative children who attend with her to be themselves without judgment.

We also find attending the professional and youth theater shows with our children to be a great way to introduce them to live performance. Many of the shows are family-friendly and the price is very affordable for families while still be high quality.

upgrade the aging facilities and recruit more children from low income families to participate in the classes.
