WHAT our STUDENTS SAY
How do I thank you for what you are doing for this community? The ability of my fellow students was at first daunting, then inspiring, and the teaching just exemplary. I have learned so much - I feel creative again! Every arts community should have something of this quality. I feel lucky to be in Nashville.
