When I chose to send my son to a public school in NYC, part of my choice was driven by the Opus 118 program in the school. The program is so good and so in-demand that we had to enter a lottery to participate, and what a winning ticket it turned out to be. My son has gained so much discipline, poise, and appreciation for music. He has overcome inhibitions. And he has learned teamwork through the group classes and fantastically wonderul end-of-year concerts. He gained the confidence to audition for a competitive summer music camp, and was so elated to be accepted and attend. He also has such a lovely relationship with his violin teacher, and is proud to be a part of something that is bigger than him, and which has become a legendary part of the New York City music scene.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my family, in my son's school, and in the New York City community.
