Valdosta State University (South Georgia String Project)

The SGSP has helped our reserved daughter to come out of her shell and go onto the stage. Music has given her confidence. She is often caught talking to peers about her music or volunteering for something at school now. Math skills have doubled, and there is a scientific link between music and mathematics. She loves her violin, and SGSP has provided a cost-friendly, family-friendly way for her to meet other children who enjoy music! Her teachers have phenomenal patience and find new ways to connect to the children every day! It has been amazing to watch these children who could not tell you what a bow was at the beginning blossom and be able to read music, understand variations in scales, and play full orchestral pieces together! SGSP will be where we bring out the next “strings” child, for sure!
