From A Parent's Point of View...
"All three of my children take lessons here...take ensembles and have enrichment classes", Says Michael Gleba Sr., "My children [are] just having their horizons expanded and the opportunities and options for them as they grow up are just more than they could possibly think. There are scholarships available and it makes it so much easier with the support the conservatory gives...is just something you don't see a lot. Being here for several years, knowing all of the hard work that the staff and teachers provide, it makes me proud to see the organization be recognized because it takes so many people to make this work".
I first met Regina Nixon a few years ago at an event and when she told me about the
Phoenix Conservatory of Music I knew I needed to know more! As a parent of two boys
who played in orchestra and band, I wish I had known about the Conservatory back then.
They provide a wonderful service for kids who are musically inclined and really want to
grow musically, and they do it so well that they have a partnership with the world-renowned
Berklee School of Music in Boston, and they recently received a prized national honor in
Washington D. C. Here's my interview with Executive Director Regina Nixon.
