"I worked with someone at the Art Center who was non-verbal, with limited mobility and to many eyes did not seem interested in participating. During the first class the individual attended with me, I saw engagement via eye contact, and movement of hands to the group rhythm. The more time he spent in the classes the more engaged in the group he became. Music can have an impact on any person's life no matter what his abilities may be."

- Sheila Santos, AFA Teaching Artist
