May 2022 Students of the Month
I love music because each note is rhythmic. I love to sing along to songs like "The Let Go" by Ellie King and "Roar" by Katy Perry. I love playing music because everyone is unique and so is every instrument.
I would like to nominate Olivia. Although Olivia has just started playing the violin, she has worked hard to develop great posture and a textbook bow hand shape! She is always curious in lessons, practices regularly, and is developing a keen musical ear. I’m proud to have her in my studio!!

I like music because it is fun and entertaining. I told my mom I want to play violin in the future, and she told me to start small. She encouraged me to start with piano. After learning for months, I found it was pretty fun. I got to learn different types of music and dances. I could also play the piano while my sister dances or sings! Piano started my interests in music. I enjoy playing with my family and friends to share the joy. I can use the piano to create music and it is a very unique skill.
I nominate Angelina to be the student of May for my studio. For the past two years while all the lessons were held through Zoom, Angelina still stayed very passionate about music, very engaged in the lesson, practiced hard, and played well in every performance class. She also helped her little sister, Anna, who just started taking piano lessons a little more than a year ago, to practice at home. Angelina received the highest rating and was invited to play in the Honored Recital for ADMTA (Austin District Music Teacher Association) music festival this past March. The judge was particularly impressed with her cheerful personality and introduction for the pieces and said, "made me anxious to hear your performance." This is her first time playing for the festival and she received such great feedback. I'm really proud of her.

I love playing piano because, I like YOU my piano teacher, I also like piano because, I like every song I play on the piano.
Serena is a very talented and hard-working pianist. She is always motivated to read new pieces every week. Moreover, she has participated in many performance opportunities this semester. Discipline is the key to be successful in playing piano! I’m so proud of you Serena.

I like music because it is a form of art where you can freely express yourself, kind of like drawing which is my favorite hobby.
I would like to nominate my student Audrey for student of the month. She has made unbelievable progress both during the pandemic and now that we are back in person. What amazes me about Audrey is how intensely focused and deeply expressive she is with her playing. One of the hardest things to do on guitar is to maintain your awareness of all the technical details required to modulate the tone or the dynamics while still being aware of where you are in the piece and hitting all the right notes. When Audrey can't get that right away I always ask her what would make it easier and she says "lots and lots of practice." - and she does it!
