Commusication is a beautiful program and Mr. Ryan is amazing! This is my daughter's first year and she absolutely LOVES it! I appreciate that this program not only teaches music, but social and leadership skills as well. She has performed all over the Twin Cities within just one year. She is learning so much and making so many new friends!

ComMusication is on the forefront of true education. The students and staff work together in a democratic way to empower each learner with life skills necessary for a successful future and musical skills necessary for a lifetime of singing. I couldn't be more proud to be associated with this organization. Music educators, take note! This is the future of our calling.

My daughter, Saani Taylor, started off in Crescendo and is now in CMC. Since she was a little girl, she has been singing. When she first started attending ComMUSICation, I thought it would be a fun, after-school program for her to be involved in. Little did I know, the impact it would be in her life. When she first started singing in church, it would almost be like a whisper. You could barely hear her. After practicing and performing more, she became bolder and would sing her heart out. ComMUSICation has taught her how to be commitment to something, to persevere even when you don't get it right the first time, and to be proud of whom you are.
1 brag about where they have performed at, like at the Orchestra Hall, at various churches and events and even in Duluth. Why? Because some of our children probably wouldn't have never gone to the Orchestra Hall or Ordway let alone perform there. I admire the different genres of music they are exposed to because it expands their minds to different sounds and messages in the songs. And I love the friendships that they have build within the group. It is group of young people who respect and love to be around each other. ComMUSICation isn't just about singing a few songs together; it's about bridging communities together while singing a few songs together. Anyway I can support and help out, I'm there. And anyway you all can help whether it is with finances, resources, or your time would be very much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to listen and have wonderful evening.
