Review for Desert Sounds Performing Arts Inc, Tempe, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DESERT SOUNDS is an amazing organization with a hard-working Director who makes it all work for students and parents. Desert Sounds provides instruments to students who otherwise would not be able to learn or play music. The rewards of studying music remain a life-long experience that develops the whole child. In this economic time, it is a struggle for children and their parents to gain access to an instrument but Desert Sounds will reach out to any child's school to work with the family and the music teacher in their school to provide an instrument. The organization survives on donations & will purchase new instruments for the child to use for the entire school year. As a small child, I grew up listening to music; throughout my education, I studied classical music and have been working with elementary, high school & university students for 50 years. All my children studied music throughout their school educations (elementary, high school, and university) and I attest to the impact that music has made in their lives. Not only gaining the music knowledge but their overall learning skills and work/study habits were remarkable. I give praise to Jennifer Crews, her staff and the entire Desert Sounds Organization.
