"Working with Project Rhythm for the past two years has been an amazing experience for my students. In addition to empowering them and increasing their self-confidence, they had an opportunity to problem solve and work with students other than their friends. They have learned so much about writing and performing; all the while having a positive and fun learning experience."

- Diane Rigo, English Teacher, Brooklyn School for Career Development
