Summer Student Spotlight

with 2 Comments

Keanhyzia has been making great progress as she learns to play the ukulele and sing. She is proud of all the chords she is learning and “of making it all the way to the A chord.” When asked what she likes most about SWAN, she said, “I like to sing and express my feelings and get all that good singing out. I love to sing!”

She shared that SWAN lessons are important because she learns things that will help her in life as she goes to college or gets a job. She wants to encourage other children like her to “keep working hard, don’t give up, you can do anything you put your mind to.” She is eager to continue learning and expressed her gratitude, “Thank you for giving me this opportunity in life to be a part of SWAN.”

    Keanhyzia’s positive attitude is a beacon of light. Music has so many wonderful aspects. I think the healing nature of music is my favorite. Thank you SWAN for the incredible work you do and the joy you bring to so many lives!

    Thanks for your encouraging words, Valerie! You’re so right! Music is healing on many levels and as our students learn to play instruments and perform, they hone their gifts and talents in ways that bring them success and joy!
