To change the world, start with one step. However small, the first step is hardest of all.

Here at Music Flow, we are not only interested in spreading the gift of music to our local Bend Oregon community, but also across the globe to other communities that need it more than ever. We have partnered with VE Global, a non-profit organization based in Santiago Chile, to help us accomplish this mission. VE Global works tirelessly with volunteers and strategic partners to foster the positive development of children at social risk in Chile.
For each new student or family who completes their first 3 months of lessons, Music Flow will donate $50 to VE Global’s music partnership program in Santiago, Chile. These funds will be used to support music education for hundreds of children who rely on donations and global support for their personal development.
My name is Tatiana Cobos and I have been playing guitar for about 7 years. Ever since I can remember it always fascinated me the way the guitar looked, how it sounded, and the way you move your hands when you play the instrument. Along these 7 years I have had a few teachers. Some didn’t challenge me the way I wanted to be challenged and others had a different vision for me than that I had for myself. A couple of years ago we came across Music Flow. At the end of the first lesson I felt more connected to the guitar and to music. My instructor challenges me and shows me new concepts that I couldn’t even image exist. Every Wednesday I cannot wait to go home from school and see my instructor and what he has in store for me. Music for me has become a place I can explore and have my own little bubble of creativity. I have found my love for the guitar and music, and I have no plan in stopping my lessons any time soon! I love Music Flow and what I have learned!
