ANDERSON INSTITUTE OF MUSIC AND PERFORMING ARTS JULY 31, 2015

Jen's Editing Note: This summer, my daughter wanted to learn how to play the ukulele. I figured it was an instrument I wouldn't mind hearing around the house and signed her up for classes at AIM here in Estrella. AIM is the Anderson Institute of Music and Performing Arts. WOW! What a great experience this has been. Mr. Anderson is from Hawaii and has his very own ukulele. I get that he loves teaching the instrument and my daughter, Emma, has picked it up quickly.

In my former nonprofit years, I briefly met Mr. Anderson when he provided the music for a Move-A-Thon® event we had. Very kind. And he made the day special for the kids.

I asked Edward Anderson for a feature and he agreed. I hope you enjoy learning more about AIM as much as I did!
