Fine Arts Chamber Players
March 25, 2010

For the past year, I have worked with the Fine Arts Chamber Players program which provides violin instruction to elementary school children with limited exposure to classical music. In working with these children, whom I could best describe as' at risk' I've been inspired by their interest, energy, and enthusiasm. It has re-affirmed my belief that with exposure to music or any aspect of the arts, every child's life can be enriched. The benefits of music to young children are immeasurable as it teaches them discipline, problem solving, pride in accomplishing something, and is a great boost to their self-esteem.

What I have enjoyed most is the way music has taught these children to love music, and to take pride in being able to produce it themselves.

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

It could provide music instruction to an unlimited number of 'at risk' children who migh otherwise be lost to the streets, or at least find no focus or discipline in their lives.
