I started working with Pavoh back in May. Since then we have put on many successful music programs at local Boys and Girls clubs. The response has absolutely been incredible. The kids are extremely excited and interested to try learning music for the first time, or continue learning. In my time teaching for Pavoh I have come across kids of enormous potential whose eyes light up when they have a guitar in their hand. It is amazing to see firsthand the passion Pavoh has evoked, and continues to do so.

I absolutely love, respect and admire Laura's vision. Essentially, this organization's mission is to equip and guide today's youth -- through the arts -- to become tomorrow's leaders in whatever path they take in life. That's beyond beautiful and also very much necessary. So for that alone, I am a proud supporter.

Congrats to Pavoh for giving young performers, under the age of 21, the opportunity to truly develop as artists. It's refreshing to work with an organization that is so deeply committed to helping talented kids to flourish. Not only are they professional in their approach, they provide great, non-profit opportunities to showcase their talents and reward those that are prepared to invest in the art and business of music.

I love what Pavoh is doing for kids who connect through music. Many of these young artists just want a chance to perform and get their sound out into the community. It's a great organization to get involved with if you want young musicians to be seen and heard! Congratulations to Laura and all the volunteers who are giving of their time and resources to open doors of opportunity for young musicians and vocalists.

There are few, if any, organizations today that support and offer educational, networking and performing opportunities for young, aspiring musicians. Pavoh is that organization.

It's been a year since I last worked with Pavoh, and just in that one year, the charity has done so much! I am a high school music teacher that sees first hand how teenagers hunger for avenues to perform and make music. It is amazing to see Pavoh hosting so many opportunities for young musicians. Personally, I am most thrilled by the performance opportunities. Many teens are not able to perform in local venues due to their age, but they are so skilled! Pavoh helps students get ready at any stage: beginner getting ready to perform, or experienced.

I had heard of Pavoh from a youth at the Waltham Boys and Girls Club. The youth explained to me that Pavoh had supported some musical opportunities at the Club and said that it was the first time that he felt he had been given an opportunity to share his musical talent with others. He said it inspired him to work harder on his music and more importantly feel what he loves to do matters. This inspired me to look further into the Organization and get a better understanding of it's mission. I was impressed with it's desire to help recognize talented musicians 21 and under, I certainly saw the success and boost in self confidence it brought to the young youth I had spoken to at the B & G Club. I was also impressed with PAVOH's desire to provide Performance opportunities to youths in a VARIETY of settings, engage youths in getting updated music information and provide parents resource information.
I was so impressed I have offered to volunteer at any Pavoh Event they need me.

Its just good that there are caring, passionate folks like Laura and the rest of the Pavoh crew out there. Making progress as a young independent musician is tough, and Pavoh.org provided us and many other musicians with countless opportunities for performances, recognition, and exposure; which were all essential to building up to our current touring schedule. Pavoh rocks!

I was brought into the Pavoh fold when I wrote a story for a national magazine about music education in the Boston area and met the amazing, tireless and incredibly driven woman who started it. While Laura's story is inspiring, what she has been able to accomplish in a short amount of time with Pavoh has been breathtaking. She recognized that there was a need to connect kids looking to learn and perform music with a wealth of information they would otherwise be unaware of. The result is a website that goes beyond merely being a vital tool and a nexus for the local music community, it's also an engine for the creation and sponsorship of events that spread the love of music education and lay the foundation for the future careers for young people. As a musician and teacher myself at Music Go Round in Natick I make sure to introduce all my young students and their parents to the excellent resource that is Pavoh.
