March 2021 Students of the Month!
Why I love Music
(Short fun poem)
Music is water
Roars and sings
Through guitar strings
While piano keys ring
Music has connection
Of beautiful collections
Music is sound
Never to be drowned
As if it were a wound
It will always be found
I am very honored to be chosen as Student of the Month. Music has helped me grow into the person I am today with the many awesome concerts, lessons, relationships, and musical connections. It has brought me so much joy and appreciation for those who supported me along this journey. Thank you so much for eleven years of great musical experiences!
I am so impressed by how Ayame is able to do great quality practice despite a busy schedule. She is a state champ swimmer and honors student at school, and still manages to get better at guitar every week. She is part of a prestigious youth ensemble, the ACG Youth Orchestra, which recently went on tour in San Francisco. Bravo Ayame!
I'd like to give a big shout out to Ms. Beth because she encourages me to work hard, practice and helps me find challenging songs. I wouldn't have learned to play the piano without her. I love playing the piano and once I get better I want to learn other instruments.
Throughout the pandemic, Anya remained dedicated to piano lessons whether she was at her grandmother’s house, or out of state! When we began making plans for the Valentine’s Recital, Anya asked if she could learn “All You Need is Love”. Once she mastered that piece, she inquired about another song about friendship, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”. She practiced diligently to play and sing both songs. I was impressed with how motivated she was, and also that she wanted to play two special songs that celebrate love and friendship. Anya is preparing for her Musical Journey test in May. She is a wonderful student with a happy outlook...and most of all, loves music!
“Amelia found music classes during a world wide pandemic and instantly became a fan. She thinks that the sound of guitar and songs can make people feel happy and peaceful and she’s all for it. She also thinks playing guitar is just the coolest thing ever. She can’t wait for her classes with Mr. Wyatt and Ms. Jessica because she can learn more cool stuff, for an example she didn’t even know that people can actually read music! Being able to play guitar also makes Amelia feel very confident. She believes that everyone should learn how to play guitar.” -Amelia
"Amelia comes to class ready to make and share music every week. She has a smile ready for everyone in class. If one of her fellow classmates is struggling with a concept, she is their best cheerleader. Amelia works hard on the concepts and the songs we are playing in class. She is always ready to take the lead and play whatever song we’re working on. Her enthusiasm at each activity radiates even through Zoom. She is a delight to work with each week." -Ms. Jessica
“I feel happy when I play piano!”
"Ethan is a joy to have in class! I perceive that he is an attentive listener and an avid learner. He often volunteers to perform excerpts of our ensemble songs, and I can hear improvement and musicality from week to week. He contributes to class activities with respect and accuracy that show me that he is learning and thriving. I look forward to seeing him grow as a musician!"
