Review for W.O. Smith Community Music School, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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).

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.
