Our Impact

“KIC is an amazing program that does a lot for our kids. They not only cultivate the love of music, they also work with each kid to make sure they are confident and compassionate. They help each kid to discover their aptitudes, abilities and passion, at the same time that they encourage each person to be themselves.”
