Review for Opus 118 Harlem School of Music, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Participating in this program empowered me to pursue excellence. In short, it saved my life by opening doors that I would otherwise have never known existed.

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

my everyday life, and that of my family.

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

expand its reach, expand its teacher-training campaigns and make it the subject of a reality TV series.

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

seeing the children of my former classmates benefit from the program 20 years later.

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

Dedicated and engaged.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Positively impact the lives of even more of NYC's neediest children and their families.

Ways to make it better...

The documentary "Small Wonders" had won an Academy Award. But i guess it's an honor to be in a film that was nominated.

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

Reconciling the corporate culture of the Board of Directors with the collaborative culture of the school's community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

An education in the Arts is not a privilege, it is a necessity, essential to the development of rational, successful Human Beings.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
