Read on to learn more about this future superstar from Stages Music Arts!
What do you study and why did you pick that instrument?
I play piano and vocals. Honestly I didn’t pick it, my mom did. I have been into music and she thought it would be best. Now I have learned so much that I can’t stop.
Who is your teacher and what do you love about them?
My teacher is Ms. Shannon and I love how she pushes me to my limit and will let me relax if I am not feeling good. I also love how Ms.Shannon is kind and never judges you. I loved when she introduced me to an app that makes songs.
What kind of music do like to listen to or play? Recent favorite artist?
I love rock – normally I sing it but there aren’t many rock songs on piano – so I also sing pop. My favorite artist is Victoria Justice.
What’s your favorite thing about Stages or do you have a favorite Stages memory?
My favorite memory was when I first came in and Ms. Shannon was so nice and called me smart because I knew a lot of things about music.
What are your musical goals? What is one of our non-music related goals?
My music goal is to become a young but successful musician and singer like Olivia Rodrigo. My non-music goal is to be an architect.
Tell us a favorite fun fact about yourself NOT related to music.
I am good at soccer and art. I won 3rd place in my first art contest. And for soccer I am a goalie.
