"Her energy & enthusiasm is contagious! Our students loved her!"
Lorelei Farlow, Orchestra Director
Park Tudor High School

 

"I don't know if you remember me but you played at my school 2 years ago. I'm a sophomore now at the highschool, it would be really cool if we played with you again! That concert was my favorite. I still pull out the music and play it"
Jordan, sophomore
Center Grove High School North

 

"I'm the proud Mother of one of the privileged violinists that you performed with last night. I just had to let you know that you are absolutely awesome! You gave me goosebumps throughout the evening and my jaws hurt from the smile I couldn't control. I never dreamed our youngest Daughter would enjoy music as much as I do. You have inspired her to take it as far as her heart desires! Thank You for a once in a lifetime adventure!"
Heidi, parent
Jennings County High School

a method built on fun that builds confidence
and allows everyone to find their own
comfortable place in the world of
improvisation.

student players to actually become a part of
the band! By making music along side Cathy

playing songs with Latin, rock, swing and
funk grooves that give them a whole new way
to approach playing! Back up comping,
written out and improvised solos, open
