Testimonials From Scholarship Recipients
Dear Arrowhead Arts Association,
I would just like to take the time to thank you for your generosity. You have really enhanced the joy in my life.
Recalling the first time I was awarded a scholarship from you, I realize how much it has changed my life. It established a solid foundation where an artistic structure has mounted itself. The lessons with Noëlle Tinturin have been far more beneficial than anything I have learned at school or on my own. She has given me a voice and I can now speak my thoughts through the beauty of music. Thank you for this incredible scholarship that has never lost its influence and for the lessons with Jim McCormick. Mr. McCormick has given me new perspectives on musical interpretation. This, along with the addition of a new piano, has caused my musical capabilities to increase exponentially. The piano has taken the title of my most prized possession.
Over the years, you have made it possible for me to attend two different summer music camps: Arrowbear and Idyllwild. At Idyllwild, I became acquainted with teens my age that shared the same passion as I. We learn off each other and we still keep in touch. This year you have offered me a chance to attend this camp again and I look forward to it with excitement!
Most people do not understand how music enhances a person’s math and logic capabilities. With me, my math scores have improved by 40% and I have created a new type of solar-powered generator. My enhanced logic skills have allowed me to paint and compose. This was all possible in the name of music.
Once again, I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me. You have made all of my dreams possible and I am proud to call you my sponsors!
From the bottom of my heart,
