“It warms my heart to hear what the families say about my Music Together by the Dunes program. It is truly an honor and privilege to be a part of their lives”.      Ina Ferrara

 

“The Music Together Program has given me and my children much reason to “get up and move”, the confidence to sing out loud, and the knowledge of how to use a wide variety of musical instruments….Not only did my children gain a musical foundation, they learned to socialize, to share and to communicate through words, songs and rhythms.”    

  Tara Hudson

 

Maria Pentcheva-Burns says that, “music Together is the most special and joyous time of the week that I get to share with my daughter. Not only does it let me unwind and be silly, but also Calina is so enchanted by the music and props that she simply loses herself. I cannot say enough good things about the program, Ms. Ina and the wonderful learning that takes place”.    

 

Susan Ruocco and Dennis Maroulas wrote; “Thank you for all you have done for James. His love of music is obvious several times a day as he sings to himself, with us, and now to his sister Elizabeth!”

 

“Porter was just 15 months old when we began on our musical adventure…little did I know or realize that this was going to be a life long journey, one that we will both treasure forever. You have touched our lives so much so that Porter mentions your name at least 50 times a day. Every time she sees an American Flag she say, “Ms. Ina, Ms. Ina’s class” in honor of the flags that hang outside the classsroom. The gift of music that you have given to our family has become a daily ritual of singing, dancing, and playing our instruments as a family (Daddy too!). She truly cherishes you and her music so I felt very strongly that you should know how terrific we think you are and what an honor it has been to be in your class. I am aware that Music Together is a standardized program, but it is you that makes the experience so special and makes the music come to life. To be able to touch a child’s life in such a meaningful and positive way is a gift. Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher”.           Paige Campbell
