What is your favorite part of taking music lessons at Music Makers?

I like going there and being able to talk with my teacher (Ms. Andrea) cause she really makes music exciting fun and I think it's hard for students especially my age and even younger to enjoy practicing and learning music. She makes it so much easier, fun, and always asks me how everything is going and she is making me inspired and excited to continue music into college. She also encourages and supports me with my clarinet playing as well!

What is your favorite song to play and why?

"My current favorite song would be, Elgar Cello Concerto simply because its opening statement is so cool and it's just overall a very powerful piece"
