Testimonials

"During the musical summer camp, I gained a lot of experience being a leader that I did not have before. With Ms. Toshi, I was introduced to new voice techniques alongside the children. I believe that her vocal coaching was very beneficial for the kids who had an interest in singing because she made the learning experience fun. In addition, I found helping the children to take a lot of energy, but it was enjoyable to see them learn on the keyboard, act, and sing. Overall, I am glad that I volunteered at the camp as it was a profitable experience."
