"Thank you for sharing your art with our kids. They relate to you because you are young and full of enthusiasm; they idolize you because you are cool, and rock stars to boot! They listen to you because you speak truth, in a loving, kind way. They respect you because you respect them. They laugh with you because you drop your egos and get goofy with them. They trust you because you hold their best interests at heart. They are authentic with you because you are real with them. And they take risks and face their fears because you are there cheering them on, and they know they are safe. What a magnificent group of people you are. You make this world a better place. It isn't possible to adequately articulate how incredibly grateful we are for you. Thank you for all you offer, for all you do, for all you are."

"You guys are amazing with these kids! It was such a joy to see my child explore music in this way. Eric has tried team sports and decided not to play anymore so the timing was perfect for him to find something he can be proud of. It's obvious you all truly care about the kids and have a passion for music."

"My son Jack has played piano for the last couple of years, but he's never had the opportunity to make music with others. There's so much joy to be found when you bring talent together and put the "play" in playing music! Jack has discovered a new love for playing piano and has developed an interest in pursuing band/jazz band at school. It's been really fun for him to play contemporary music and to collaborate with others.
Thank you all, for the guidance and nurturing these last couple of weeks."

"Rock 101 NM is changing lives! Our 13 year old daughter had so much fun in the program for the past two years. As a military kid, she has endured a move every 1-2 years. While she started Rock 101 NM as a shy girl finding her comfortable place in the group, she came out of her shell, gained confidence, made new friends and even learned a new instrument! Although Lexie came to Rock 101 NM with prior musical talent in piano and flute, during her weeks in the program she ventured outside of her comfort zone and even sang for a performance playing the bass guitar! We were thrilled to see the changes in her and so glad for the experience. Praises to Kevin and his program!"
