"Learning music is one of the most powerful and important experiences a child can have. I would not be where I am today without music, and all of the incredible teachers and fellow musicians helped me to develop my talent and passion for music. Music has always been my refuge - it brings joy, peace, and beauty to the world in such a deep and meaningful way. It allows us to express ourselves and connect with each other. It can transform lives, communities, and even the world. Music exists inside each of us, and my wish is that everyone be given the opportunity to unlock it." -Meredith Richard, 2020
