"Christine, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to share with your artists. I had a wonderful time and hope they will continue to grow on their journey. I am thrilled to see there are still teachers who teach discipline, work ethics and manners. It was indeed a breath of fresh air..."
