Awards, Quotes, Testimonials

CIM has received numerous awards and accolades for its distance learning programming, including grants from the Key Foundation and the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation. The following is a comment recently received from a teacher in Kingsburg, CA about our "The Planets? Suite!" offering:

"The students were engaged in both the music and planet presentations. This I felt had a different approach that brought the students closer to desiring to learn more about music and our solar system. I thought that the context was excellent and the materials sent for the class was a great addition for me in getting the class ready."

From May, 2015:
“First of all, let me say WOW! What a great program. You all did such a nice job with the students. I know that 1st graders can be challenging, especially with a bucket of water sitting in front of them. Your presenters were patient, and gave great direction without being too firm. I must admit, the tuning fork in the water was the hit of the show. They are still talking about how the water “exploded”. Please thank the musicians for us as well.
