“We love SFTE! It has been one of the most important parts of our week. The instructors are phenomenal and work extremely hard and are very diligent and consistent in the goals and expectations set for my son. Violin has helped him focus in so many other areas of life. Thank YOU SFTE for being amazing at what you do!”
