I’ve been a commissioner on the Issaquah Arts commission for the past 8 years, and one of the founders of ArtWalk. There are simply not enough words to describe the vitality that you and your students bring to the community. I know I will come across a famous musician one of these days that will say I got my start at Kaleidoscope and ArtWalk. I am very grateful that you are in our community! Thanks again for all you do.
We can't say enough about our daughters violin teacher Bill Panks. His teaching style is engaging and each lesson is well organized and builds a strong foundation for learning the instrument and cultivating a life long passion for the music.
Our daughter Zoe is super excited about Kaleidoscope. As you can imagine life is difficult for a 'punk rock goth' in Snoqualmie, but at Kaleidoscope Zoe has found somewhere she fits in.
From 1991 to 2011, I served as a naval aviator flying from six different carriers, and I took my classical guitar on every deployment as my anchor to musical sanity. You can get great acoustics in a metal stateroom; however, lessons are hard to come by. I am WAY older than the average student at this school, but about a year ago, I took up electric with Charles McCrone. It is one of the absolute highlights of my week, and I thoroughly enjoy Charles' expertise and energy. Every lesson is a total blast! Thanks Charles!

My daughter started the drums less than a year ago at Kaleidoscope School of Music. This program has provided her so much joy between lessons with Sam and participating in the Rock program that Charles leads. We look forward to our youngest daughter beginning guitar lessons at Kaleidoscope this fall. I can't say enough about the school and the confidence I've seen build with in my daughter as she progresses through the program
My high-school son had big goals this year of competing in a local competition and receiving a score that would help his college resume be more competitive. Thanks to Jason not only did he meet his goal, but he now has more confidence and technique than ever! Jason takes the time to really connect with his students, which made all the difference for my son.
Leah has been so amazing for my young kids. She is amazing at connecting with them, engaging them, and helping them learn while having a lot of fun. My kids look forward to their weekly MusiKids classes, and I have been happy with how much they are learning about music theory!
I've been meaning to tell you how much I appreciate your dedication to music in such a comprehensive way. We're so used to sports getting all the energy and attention, so to have a music school that's as dedicated to kids as the focus on sports is a great thing and I feel very lucky that Jaden gets to benefit. Much gratitude!
We cannot thank you enough for the incredible week of Girls Rock Camp! My daughter loved every minute! We have learned that camps are really only as good as the people working with the kids. Allison and Tori were just tremendous! They were fun, kind and treated the girls like peers and not little kids. You set a beautiful tone and relaxed atmosphere for the girls to take risks and try new things. We loved that it was small and made each girl feel special. We loved the final performance!
