Comment from Evelyn Osborne Newfoundland Canada
"Our ECE classes are going great here in Newfoundland. We started with one class then added another last year. This year both are very full and we're starting a third! I have to say teaching this class is the highlight of my week there is nothing like teaching the ECE class to make me realize everything is beautiful in the world :-)  Not only are the kids enjoying it but its good for my soul :-)  Its also a great boost to the program and we're starting to see ECE graduates in the main program, much to our teachers delight!  They make wonderful instrumental students :-)"
