Contrary to the reviewer in 2011 who felt the new management would have a negative effect on the Music Academy, I have watched my donations help take the Music Academy to new heights in the last two years. Not only has the staff retained the highest level of professionalism, but the renovations, planned and overseen by the new management, have resulted in a beautiful and very pleasant facility with more space for learning and performing. Who could ask for more!

MANC's efforts to reach the people in their area who can either support or utilize their music education programs is outstanding. Their breakfast and tours, inspired by Benevon, have significantly raised community awareness of the Academy's facilities and goals and have cultivated public desire to be part of their programs, either as volunteers, students, or financial supporters. I am sincerely happy to have even a small part in their successes.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its influence not only to the entire state of North Carolina but also help create similar music academies throughout the United States. Wow!

My son takes guitar lessons with Kevin Dollar. It has been a wonderful experience for him. Though highly gifted, my son has develomental delays in his motor and social skills and may have Asperger's. Kevin has been incredibly patient and has been great at encouraging my son in areas where he is weak and building upon his strengths. He realtes to him very well and seems to really get him. We've been very happy with our experience at MANC.

We have two boys with autism and both have attended camps and received piano lessons on scholarships!! We have been so impressed and appreciate how MANC goes out of their way to help families with special needs children!! Families with special needs children acrue extra finiacial burdens. Music camps and lessons, many times, do not make the priority list, even though they are SO important for our children. The staff and insructors are above the bar in expereince, education and just really great people!!

The Great!

I learned of the music academy several years ago through a friend whose son was taking lessons there. Due to my daughter's interest in guitar and her desire to lead people to Christ through worship, I contacted the Music Academy to see how they could partner with us to help her achieve her goals. We were directed to talk with Mr. Kevin Dollar, who teaches guitar and was willing to work with our homeschooling schedule. After speaking with him, we felt very comfortable having our daughter become one of his students. Not only has he taught our daughter the fundamentals of playing the guitar along with instructing her in music theory, but he also built a relationship with her, learning her musical likes and dislikes, helping her to develop her own style, instead of forcing her to conform to some standardized plan. In addition, as our daughter became interested in obtaining a music scholarship at the university she plans to attend, Mr. Dollar helped her to become connected to Mittie Douglas, who became her vocal coach. Both Mr. Dollar and Mrs. Douglas provided opportunities to stretch our daughter and to prepare her as well as possible by planning recitals and mock auditions to help her become more proficient in these areas. Most importantly, as our daughter recently expressed, her instructors have allowed her to be herself, to progress at her own pace, and have been consistently encouraging so that coming to music lessons is always a joy instead of a burden or a place of condemnation. We look forward to being able to rejoice with the staff of the Music Academy when our daughter begins her journey toward obtaining a degree in Worship Ministry.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching my daughter develop her musical skills in guitar and voice, while gaining confidence in her ability to share her faith through worship leading.
