QUOTE FROM LOGAN
“I have known about SOUNDS for many years but just recently got more involved. I have seen the incredible impact that this program has on the students and their futures. I’ve also seen the extreme inequities in music education and I fully believe that a child’s zip code should not determine their access to quality music education.”
