Hello! I wasn’t really sure who to send this to but I wanted to say how great the concerts were today! I had 2 children perform and I was blown away by what they have learned in such a short amount of time! Both instructors have been absolutely amazing!

I did want to give Nate (my son’s guitar teacher) an extra thank you! He has done such a great job with him. He has ADHD and sometimes has a hard time concentrating and often times doesn’t appear to be listening (but is). He blew my husband and I away today at the concert in no smart part to Nate. It was evident how much work Nate puts into not only my kid, but all of his students. We very much appreciate his time and talent. Our son was nervous today go on stage but after it was done he was SO proud of himself and that is priceless.

Thank you for truly caring about these kids. It was absolutely amazing to watch them all.

My daughter came out to the car after practice and told me she had "the most fun EVER" at Elevate! I just wanted to share this with you as it meant so much to me that Bryce, Steve and Shane made her feel so amazing and so good about herself! It sounded like they really "rocked out" and had a blast playing music together. They make a HUGE impact in kids' lives! I am so grateful to the Elevate team!

Elevate Rock School has given both my kids the opportunity to come out of their shells, learn an instrument while having a blast, and has given them the opportunity to see what it is like to perform live.  All the teachers make lessons fun and love the kids!  I never hear my kids say, “I don’t want to go to lessons”.  We have been part of Elevate from the beginning (over 4 years,) and I hope kids’ schedules allow them to continue to be a part of Elevate.

We’ve been with Elevate Rock School since before it was Elevate Rock School.  Bryce and Lisa are incredibly focused on constructing a very unique experience for the kids that attend.  They are passionate, energetic, and fun.  What’s more, they care deeply for the students they have.  The musical education the students receive is second to none and the comradery and friendships the students develop last long after the lessons end.   Many children need that extra something.  A huge benefit we found with the program Elevate provides is the therapeutic value that comes with learning to play an instrument and the self-confidence it instills.  Whether they were birth children, foster children, or children we adopted over time, every child that participated in Elevate left with a positive experience knowing there were people that care about them and want them to succeed.  Our lives have been richly blessed because we’ve been able to get to know Elevate Rock School, Bryce and Lisa, and their team of talented musicians and teachers.

We are extremely happy with the music experience and staff at Elevate! As a teacher and mother, I am so impressed with the Elevate teachers who are so awesome at encouraging and guiding the students to feel successful at every level and ability. It is obvious that they love music, teaching and their students. It has been exciting to watch the growth in my daughter’s vocals and the new confidence she has attained. Elevate Rock School has offered such a great program for lessons with an authentic application – Concert Time! The concerts give each student the chance to share their hard work in a realistic setting. We are lucky to have this opportunity in our community. I want to give a big thanks to Elevate staff! Sincerely.

What I loved was the pure joy on the faces of Steve, Bryce and Karissa as they interacted with our kids. Your love of music just shined through with every performance. That love of music and performing will rub off on our kids through the enthusiasm they see in you. Thank You for a great experience for all!

My son has been with Elevate almost since their opening. He has become quite the rock guitar player, understanding rhythm, playing with band members, memorizing his music. It complements his piano playing and really impressed his band teachers! It's been an amazing experience for him to learn this lifelong skill and no one does it better than Elevate. Their teachings, enthusiasm, and passion for music are evident. All their hard work and your childrens' culminate into SPECTACULAR rock concerts!

Bryce, Steve, Lisa and all - Yesterday's event was amazing! Bryce Niemiller, you said that you wanted to share your love of music with the kids. I say, mission accomplished! It was clear they were having a BLAST! There is no doubt in my mind that you and your crew will continue to do so for many years into the future. Way to go following your dreams to inspire, empower and equip kids to love music as much as you do!
