Student Testimonials from Athena!
"Athena has made me understand how music can influence a life. All of the teachers were so influential and it was obvious that they loved their music."
"I will definitely go back to school and tell all of the girl students about Athena. I want them to experience the joy of Athena like I did!"
"The experience was unlike any other."
"I have become more confident in speaking and performing in front of a group."
"Before Athena Camp, I was self conscious, shy, and quiet. I didn't think I
was good enough to be a leader, and I didn't have too many friends. But
now, I'm the Band Captain of my high school marching band and was strong
enough to sit with people I've never met before at band camp!"
"I really enjoyed being able to bond with girls my own age who came from different places."
"My teacher was awesome!"
"We had fun rehearsals and had a great director. We
accomplished so much in such a small amount of time."
"The forums we had
were really informative, especially the one about how to prepare for an
audition. I think I learned a lot about how to be a successful musician
and leader from the time I spent at Athena."
"I really loved the drum circle we did as a group. It made me feel
significant because when I played a beat, everyone had to copy me for
four counts. But nobody made fun of me even if I messed up.
I felt so comfortable around everyone at camp, and the drum circle
exercise reinforced that."
