W.O. Smith Community Music School
February 9, 2010

I have served as a volunteer teacher since it's doors opened. It is a marvelous place to participate in and observe a child's growth in the scholarship and artistry of music. When I was a full time teacher and sometimes questioned if music in my classroom was having any effect, my weekly after-school WOS sessions reaffirmed the power music has as a discipline & inspiration for children & youth. Many hours given by so many musicians in such a nurturing atmosphere has impacted generations across Nashville communities. It is a model for any city seeking to access community/professional music resources for its underserved clientele (school aged children & youth).

The Great!

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

recitals given by students across many years where they meet and surpass goals they have set.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing a new or re-newed 'spark' in a child as they embrace discipline and produce a beautiful musical product. It is a marvelous experience for them AND the audience.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

supportive and professional; of the highest quality.

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

provide improved infrastructure by hiring needed development & management positions to spread the work load.
