Music Program Testimonials
"I liked studying science and math in school, but music makes me happy. I have some vision,
but when I'm here at the Lighthouse, playing in the band with all my friends, that's what it's all about."
- Music Program percussionist Adriel
"My godfather is a professional musician. He plays the trumpet, but I really like the
trombone. I've learned so much here at the Lighthouse. I come to the Music Program religiously every Saturday to continue
to evolve and learn, especially from music instructor Carlos Camacho. I am already getting some paid gigs."
- Music Program trombonist Christopher
"I've been playing the drums since I was nine years old. I've never been sighted, but it's
never stopped me from wanting to learn new things. Among those 'new things' is work with the synthesizer and
learning to use the braille version of ProTools to create my own recordings. I've been a Lighthouse band member for more
than three years. I love to play and reminisce about gigs at New York's famed Apollo Theater and the Village
Gate." - Lighthouse Band member, percussionist and pianist Rick
"This Music Program is a wonderful thing. I've been coming here for two years, and I'm
learning to work with computers in the braille music program. Finding the Lighthouse has made a big difference in
my life." - Lighthouse Band member, percussionist Joel

incredible. My son Hobie Benson enjoys going to your center to learn and serve in the community each opportunity
he can. Your music program has enhanced Hobie's music talents and he is grateful to be part of The Miami
The staff at your center shows professionalism and commitment to the community and to the children involved in
the summer program and also the program during the school year on the weekends.
Thank you for taking your position at the Lighthouse with such effort and consideration to others.
