I wanted to write and tell you what an impactful and wonderful experience the Texas Jazz and Blues Camp was for our son. He came home from camp every single day beyond excited about what he was learning from the jazz and blues greats who were the instructors. He learned more in a week that I ever thought was possible. On the first day that I went to pick him up, the instructors were performing for the students. The music was incredible! But more amazing was watching the room of students sitting in rapt attention and awe.
Since August of 2013, we have had the distinct pleasure of working with the New School of Music. They provided guitar lessons to our students inviting them into a world they might never have had the opportunity to experience. NSM could teach anywhere but their commitment of giving back to the community. The instructors are, without exception, patient professionals who take pride in sharing their knowledge. When asked why they do this, the instructors respond it is our way of giving back.
