Testimonials from Parents, Teachers and Students

Thank you especially for offering Music-COMP. As you've probably noticed over the last 6 years, music has not really been his thing.  Music-COMP however brought a whole new perspective to music for him that he really enjoyed. Although he's not into singing or playing instruments, he loved the creative aspect of actually creating a composition from scratch. I'm glad he was finally able to discover a way to embrace music. So thank you for that opportunity!

Well now that I'm a composer, I do a lot more with music. I enjoy music now. I actually play French horn now in band because I enjoy composing so much and I play piano. Yeah - I like to compose and I like music. Last year when I started composing it kind of opened up, like, this new world of music to me.

Thank you for this opportunity to come and hear my piece played by real people. For me, this is a big deal. It may be the only chance I have to do this kind of thing. Composing makes me feel free to express my feelings that I may be too shy to express in other ways. Thank you for making this possible!

Dear Mr. Ramsey (his mentor), thank you for helping me figure out how to get the sound I wanted out of my music! Today has been a day I will never forget for the rest of my life.
