"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."

"Music is a universal art form that transcends the walls of prison and the confines of geography or socio-economic status. It brings individuals together in community. The instruments have allowed us to continue our mission of transforming individuals and community through the arts. We are very grateful for the support of The Fender Music Foundation."
