Review for Monte Vista High School Keynoters, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization provides support and funding for the Monte Vista High School instrumental music program. Its goal is to provide an excellent music experience for MVHS students. Keynoters is operated by a dedicated group of parent volunteers, and is an outstanding organization. My daughter's instrumental music experience has been greatly enriched due to Keynoters support and funding!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A strong and vibrant instrumental music program that draws excellent students. Keynoters provides funds for music, instruments, and competition travel that the district can't fund.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Creative and effective parents who help to make the music program fun and interesting for the students.

Review for Hayward La Honda Music Camp, Union City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter has attended Hayward La Honda Music Camp for four years. It's the high point of her summer, and she schedules all other camps and commitments around it. The music education is incredible -- immersive and fun at the same time. There are enough other activities that add fun to camp also, especially horseback riding and games. Teachers and conductors are top-notch, and offer a depth of knowledge that can't easily be accessed elesewhere.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Improved music skills and ability for my daughter

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Fun provided at camp, and an opportunity to increase music skills. As school music programs dwindle, this camp provides an opportunity for kids to get a top quality music experience and play with others in a band or symphony.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

First rate people who work at this camp. Excellent teachers and conductors.

Ways to make it better...

Camp registration opening dates were a little more dependable.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Decreases in school music program funding.
