The instructors and friends Hayes has made at SOR McKinney have been extremely encouraging for him! He loves to come to both private and band practice every week. It's truly the one thing he looks forward all week.
I like the fact that my son gets to not only learn to play and instrument, but he gets to feel like a rockstar, on a real live stage, in front of a crowd cheering him on. Also I think it gives him a little more responsibility, like making him accountable for the group and not just for himself.
My son really enjoys the experience, & it's teaching him how to work with others to achieve a common goal. He is also getting exposed to different types of music & experiencing the thrill of performing.
