“MJ’s Music School has changed Carly Golden’s life! Carly is incredibly musical because of Molly Jo and her expertise with working with special needs children. I would highly recommend this summer camp. Even if your child has never really expressed an interest in music, check this out. Feel free to spread the word if you know of other special needs kids in the area.”

~Peg McFeeley Golden,
Broadway Producer, Mother of daughter with Autism
