Our students continue to amaze me!  

Friday, we were treated to an outstanding performance by our band and violin students.  As I told the parents and students in attendance that day, I have always been impressed by musicians.  The skill, patience, dedication and courage it takes to learn and perform is astounding.  

Almost two dozen students from second to seventh grade took the stage to perform familiar songs from Beethoven to Star Wars.  These students have been practicing with their instructors since September and their growth was evident.

I would like to thank our talented violin teacher, Kimberly Curtin, and band teacher, Kathy Bizub, for sharing their gifts with our students.  My only hope is that they have a larger group of interested students to work with next year.  


Many Blessings,
Steven J. Santoli
