"The drums gave us the ability this year to begin developing and implementing a drumming portion to our program. They also became very vital in developing a more kinesthetic portion to our techniques for the younger age groups, which we are now serving. The joy and expression that has come from this younger population while playing these drums cannot be expressed."

"Music gives me something to do. I write music on a daily basis. It allows me to express my feelings and redirect my feelings in a positive manner."
