"Every week brings new residents to PREF and as we lose someone to release, the new ones are quick to sign up for the music program."

"I felt totally lost at school. It's like I didn't fit in. The band program is my group; it's our group."

"There are a lot of family moments. My mom is like, ‘Oh, I'm so proud of my son; he plays viola.’ And she'll start hugging me, and the rest of my siblings are like, ‘Mom, please!’ I remember when my family all came over on Christmas, I played and a couple of them started crying. And the rest of them were really proud. It made me feel good."
