It has really helped with my daughter Amber. She is the artist in the family and a free spirit. One thing she lacked was discipline and it was very hard for her to focus on things. The skills she's learned in her classes have really helped with following instructions and learning her forms, and that has translated to having focus in the classroom. She's at the top of her class and I attribute some of that to the disicpline she has learned in her ATA classes.
