Family Experience

We are completely humbled and honored by our experience at the Conference. Our kids, the youngest bassist and cellist in the siblings band, have no idea how lucky they were to be able to taught and mentored by such talented musicians! As parents, our hearts grew ten fold, while we listened all of the thoughtful advice that our kids received. Richard’s vision of a supportive community shone through each and every minute of the conference. What an honor to have been able to be part of it!
