Spotlight on Kids – “Notes Bring Hope” Partners for Pediatric Vision, AASA
Southern California’s Partners For Pediatric Vision has kept kids-in-sight since 2019 with “Notes Bring Hope,” a charitable arm of the Asia America Symphony (AASA).The program brings together children with low vision for a day of enrichment at the Western Museum of Flight at Torrance Airport. “Notes Bring Hope” volunteers share their love of music with children from Partners for Pediatric Vision for a day of discovery, and music instruction. The children receive ukulele to keep, and instruction from Mariane Matsuda. “This experience had a positive impact on the children’s self-expression and self-esteem, developing their coordination, rhythm and concentration. It was a wonderful opportunity for fun and meaningful social interaction,” said PPV founder, and director Tori Schladen.
