Parent Spotlight - Ambika Sahay
Regarding the guitar and piano, what are you most proud of your children accomplishing? I love that my children have taken to music and appreciate the joy music brings to life. They have also learnt the value of dedication and hard work.
What advice would you give a new parent starting in the program? It takes time and practice before we start to see the results. Encourage children to keep going.
Why did you decide to give your children a musical upbringing? Music feeds the soul. Having had a musical upbringing myself, I love how the home is filled with music and joy. I want my children to have the similar experience. The fact that they also learn perseverance and hard work is a fringe benefit!
