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.

  3. You have superb info here.

  4. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this info. Today bloggers publish only about gossip and internet stuff and this is really frustrating. A good web site with exciting content, this is what I need. Thanks for making this web-site, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters by email?
