Unlock Student Potential by Supporting Outstanding Teachers

“Probably the most amazing thing that has happened so far took place in a studio class with my vocal teacher, Mr. Norris. He gave me a sheet and told me to write my thoughts on it, all-the-while playing Samuel Barber’s “Adagio.” It was beautiful, with every scale, every crescendo, and with so much elegance. It made me think of the life I live everyday, constantly hearing artists from multiple cultures and ethnic backgrounds conversing through music, literature, and much more. I can’t imagine being anywhere else than where I am now; I can’t imagine being departed from my second home. It was a powerful emotion that I can still feel now.” -Joshua, Voice, Academy & Camp, Age 16, Bridgeport, W.Va.
