A Note From Curt Miller
This organization teaches young adults FAR more than simply how to play a musical instrument. They learn teamwork, communication skills, success and failure, and how to work hard for a goal. Learning to play music in a large ensemble mirrors the challenges they will face in life later on.
JOI is an extraordinary organization!
