My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for United Sound Inc, Higley, AZ, USA
This special program has given my band students the opportunity to be mentors to students that they may have otherwise not been in contact with during the school day. The benefits of this interaction have been widely discussed from the angle of the 'new musician' or students with special needs, but I truly believe this experience is life-changing for my mentor students. They are learning to work through social, physical, and language barriers solely through the language of music. It is a powerful reminder of the gift of music and the power we have inside each and every one of us to affect another life. It is impossible to not smile when you see the eyes of a new musician light up. They are so proud of themselves, and they are not afraid to show it. The world could use a little more of this kind of genuine and unbridled joy.
