“The percussion program was a wonderful musical and positive self-esteem experience for the students at Annie Malone Children’s Home. Glen presented the information to the group in a very innovative, exciting manner that seemed to boost the students’ attention span.

The hands-on participation by the group was ideal for enhancing the students’ self- concept. Hats off to Mr. Wright and his fabulous percussion program.” The Annie Malone Children’s Home-St. Louis, MO
