In 2019 we were able to build and properly soundproof 4 additional practice rooms which are now helping our music school provide the best quality instruction to our students/clients. We also equipped the newly created spaces with new instruments and adaptive gear for our special needs students. All the improvements and purchases enabled us to open the doors to serve more students, adapt and create unique music programs for children with special needs, hire 6 additional teachers, and increase the annual revenue by 15% in only few short months.
