Student of the Month

Congratulations Maya!

What instrument do you play? I mostly play the piano, which I have been pursuing for twelve years. Occasionally, I’ll pick up an accordion.

Why did you choose to play this particular instrument? I actually didn’t originally choose to play the piano. It was something my parents wanted me to do when I was little. Now, I choose to play the piano because I think is a very important and beautiful instrument and I just love it!

What is your favorite song you’ve learned so far? That is a very hard question. I think if I had to choose a recent favorite piece it would be “Wedding Day at Troldhagaun” by Edvard Grieg. I’m currently playing a really fun sonatina by Dmitri Kabelevesky.

What is your hobby, other than music? Other than music (I have several musical hobbies), I like to read and write. Someday I hope to be a published author.

What is your favorite food? Does coffee count?

Do you have any performances coming up? I will be performing a piano solo and accompany an accordion player for the upcoming Winter Gala Recital at the Academy.
