Manny Martinez is the General Manager of Sound Stage 9 Studios - age: 30.
The Music Studio teaches kids of all ages how to play an instrument.
Manny started with Sound Stage 9 approximately 4 years ago.
Since Manny took over the management, he has grown it to 350 Students monthly.
In 2018, Manny developed a program in partnership with the Down Syndrome Coalition to offer children with down syndrome free music lessons - they got the funding from El Paso Community Foundation so that the classes could be free for the kids.
Manny's commitment to our youth is admirable - he not only manages the Studio Mon - Sat, he also teaches some of the classes.
Manny may not be able to contribute money to our community, but I believe his contribution is more important because he is inspiring and teaching what will one day be our future Doctors, Scientists, Musicians, Nurses, Moms, and Dads.
