I am a father of three and all are involved in the musical arts institute, ages 6,8 and 13. I am thankful and blessed to have the musical Arts institute right around the corner from my house to provide the music education that is so vitally important to our community, the experience and expertise that Mike Manson and his wife, who are both highly gifted and qualified musicians along with the gifted staff provide just the very thing that this community needs.
