Testimonials

“More than a guitar lesson, or a painting class, ACFA gives us the opportunity to visualize our lives in a different place, if only for a moment.”

~Ramona Palacio

“When Mr. Sarabia saw my interest in the Rondalla group and music, he showed me something that, at first, I didn’t understand but now am very grateful for. He taught me how to teach and reach to the young ones. When I returned to ACFA as an instructor, I felt like I was back in my second home. For one third of my life, I’ve benefitted from what ACFA offers to young people. And now, I want the kids from my community to have more of the same benefits that I had when I was growing up. These kids have a center where they could come and enrich their lives with culture, music, and heritage.”
