KSM teacher Russel Dequito told his students that he never doubted that they will be bringing home the bacon because he saw how enthusiastic the students were. He even added that the passion each one of them have for music is their strongest armor in the competition.

Milagros Songcuan, KSM director, accompanied the students to Guam. She expressed gratitude to the parents who gave their full support and confidence in the school’s capability to teach and enhance their children’s talents to its full potential.

Keynotes School of Music will continue to help develop the talents of each student and hone them to be one of the better if not the best in their own chosen field.
