Review for Adagio Child Inc, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Adagio Child'snoble goal is to bring string education to the lives of students who would otherwise be without. This program has given many students the opportunity to be exposed to the violin and learn the fundamental skills taught in year one string education training. It need not be noted that these students have gained more than a simple set of coordination and note-reading skills. They have also gained self confidence, discipline, and problem solving skills: skills that are necessary to compete in the 21st century. Janet Henderson Brown has approached her nonprofit group with an intrinsic love and appreciation for music that cannot be learned, and she has passed this on to future generations of young people who can join the voices of people who understand why this art form is so powerful and unique.

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

This organization has shown me that students in communities without string education can benefit greatly from learning this art form. Some communities need to be helped greatly, (instruments, teachers, resources, private instruction, etc.) and others may only need instruments to make a violin class benefit their 4th or 5th grade students. The affect of this organization is powerful and distinct and memorable for all people involved.

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

If I were able to change a portion of this organization, I would increase the funding, expand the number of enrolled students in this valuable program, expand the training to include viola/cello/bass, and secure more private teachers to aid in the instruction of the students in individual and group classes.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I assisted in locating instruments needed for Adagio Child's first year in the public schools of Saint Louis. .
