“We are so pleased with the Youth Arts Academy.  Our son takes weekly guitar lessons there, and can do this because the Academy is housed within the Boys and Girls Club, which is where he goes after school each day.  Because we both work, we normally would not be able to take him to a music lesson each week, but at the Boys and Girls Club, he just goes to the lesson during his hours at the Club.  His teacher is fantastic, and he really loves working with her.  We are planning to sign him up for piano lessons soon, and greatly value the Academy for allowing us to do this.”
