What Parents Say…

Chad and Marjorie deserve Outstanding Teachers of the Year award. My daughter was shy and not confident when she first came to the Music Training Center in March of 2012. Chad and Marjorie changed all that — they changed her outlook, her enunciation improved dramatically, she stands up straight, she projects her voice, and she smiles with confidence every day. Chad and Marjorie provided the catalyst to fully appreciate the strict discipline of practicing, as well as the rhythm of drama, the thrill of the stage, and the confidence to do well while performing. Claire took the same discipline and applied it to every facet of her life and has shone academically and athletically. I cannot thank MTC for cultivating such talented teachers and helping my daughter find her “voice”. Keep up the GREAT WORK!
