Music Teacher Appreciation

ECYS would like the recognize the wonderful school and private music teachers who work with and inspire our young musicians! We recently asked members of the Chamber Players, Camerata, and Galbraith Honor Strings to tell us about their teachers. We will be sharing their stories on ‪#‎MusicTeacherMonday‬, so check out ECYS on Facebook every week for a new post! We invite you to be part of the conversation! Share your story here!
