We are so grateful to have found Church Street School for Music and Art for our daughter! In a world where the commercial result is highly prioritized, many times at the cost of quality, it is crucial to have a school for the arts that understands that to find your artistic best you should explore through process, jump in, take risks (even if they might seem messy) and make mistakes- as this often ends up leading the way to our greatest moments and our greatest creative inspirations! A place that keeps supporting you and feeding your confidence to keep reaching…. that’s what Church Street School has given our daughter. It’s such a privilege to support an organization that is so devoted to giving to our community with such a spirited heart!
