Fine Arts Chamber Players
February 25, 2010

I am a member of the FACP teaching staff. I have had the privilege to teach at some of the finest universities in the country but I have never had a more rewarding teaching experience than instructing beginning violin students through the FACP program at Lowe Elementary.English is the second language for most of the students at Lowe and some of the students struggle academically.Happily we have succeeded in teaching the violin to students at all levels of academic competence, often to the astonishment of their other teachers.We give these children pride as well as the ability to make music, perform on a stage and work with one another.They are the Lowe community of violinists.
