We love our students! They inspire us, they challenge us, they make us laugh and smile. But most importantly, they are each wonderful, unique individuals getting ready to go out into the world and make amazing things happen! That’s why we are highlighting one of our amazing students every month.

Meet this month’s featured student: Andres!

Andres began lessons with Miguel in May of 2019. He is a hard worker with a great ear and intuition for the instrument. It’s no surprise that he has excelled over the past year and we cannot wait to see where all of his dedication takes him!

In December, Andres won our raffle to benefit The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie – and the prize was this acoustic guitar!
