- "LSM has given me what I have always wanted: more friends, more respect and enjoyment. It’s the only place where I could show my true self and faith. I am so proud of being at LSM."*
- "Once I open myself up through music, I open myself up to new people and experiences."*
- "Before LSM, I didn’t realize how much music and God intertwine in my life. It has been a fantastic realization for my life. I thank God for my gifts."*
- "Awesome! I’ve never had better friends. It’s amazing how quickly tight relationships form in four short weeks."*
- "At LSM I discovered the person that I want to be."*
- "I adore every faculty member and their excitement in helping us grow as musicians. I leave every choir rehearsal more energized than I was before."*
- "I honestly never felt so welcomed in a place/community like this before. I made friends that I know I will never forget. Everything seemed too perfect. This experience has been great and I’d love to do it all over again."*
- "I learned that I want to be a church musician when I grow up. The church needs musicians to make worship meaningful, and I would like to make a spiritual difference in someone’s life."*
- "LSM has helped me see my life with music at the core, and now I wouldn’t have it any other way."*
- "I learned how fast I can grow better as a musician surrounded by an environment of other serious kids. The band at my school would have taken years to do what we did in a month."*
