My 15 yr old daughter was struggling with things 15 yr old girls do...add to that a divorce, loss of a couple family members and a good friend, and you have a 15 yr old with more than she can handle. She needed an outlet, she loves music and has wanted to play the guitar. Streetwise, and the staff, and especially Karl, have provided that outlet. She tells me she has a sense of peace when she leaves her music lesson. Karl is teaching her, and has taken the time to find her love of words, and poems. he uses that in teaching her to express herself. Those things you don't learn at a college or other training venue.. those things come from a desire to connect with young people and help them find their own way.
