    Arrange for myself and son to meet with our instructors. Friendly staff. Very well organized and teachers who really enjoy what they do. Atmosphere is very energetic though, but one can feel good energy here.

Our Freeway Music Festival. We had 5 locations of our school come together to do a big showcase on three different stages at Tin Roof and Music Farm. We partnered with Free Timnes and SceneSC to have 20 local/regional bands play as well. It was a blast and a great way to celebrate and promote music and art in our town.
