“St. Joe’s SECE program teaches so many skills beyond music: listening, taking turns, rhythm, rhyming, coordination, right vs. left. My child loves it! I have been to other programs and this one is the best.”

“Thank you for three years of coaching and support! Your guidance has helped me grow so much as a singer and gain a lot of confidence; I feel prepared to go on and sing at St. Olaf! Also thank you for helping me prepare for my chamber singer and All State auditions. Being in those groups was life-changing, and I don’t think I could have done it without your help!"
