Thanks to the Community Foundation of Swan Valley, the music program in the Benito School will now have two violins in its list of instruments. Learning the strings will impact the musicianship that already exists. No buttons to push to get a sound, just dependency on the ears and muscle memory to find the notes.

To be a good musician, the students need to connect to and understand the music in multiple ways. With the purchase of the two violins, the students will be able to experience another format, giving them a deeper understanding of how it is created and expressed.
