patrickWELCOME PARENTS AND STUDENTS

 
Music and the arts have been an integral part of my life since I was six years old and I can’t even begin to imagine my life without them.  God’s gift of the performing arts; Music, Dance, and Acting, are all part of human expression and we as Christians are able to share these gifts through redemptive storytelling because of God’s greatest gift his Son.  I consider it a great honor and privilege to be able to share with students these blessings, and invest in them what God and others throughout my life, have passed down and invested in me.  I know that our amazing faculty feel the same as I do, and it is an absolute joy to watch as students develop and transform into the unique individuals that God created them to be.  I look forward to the possibility of collaborating with you and your children on a journey that will change and enrich their lives forever.
