Student of the Month Award Recipients
Natalie has been taking lessons at San Marino Music Center since May, 2019. Even in that short period of time, Natalie has displayed much progress. As her piano teacher explains, "Natalie started her piano lessons less than a year ago. Upon her request we soon extended her lessons from 30 min to 45 min. It was clear from the beginning that she loves playing piano and is willing to work at it. Her rapid progress is the result of her talent, intelligence and hard work. She practices every day for at least an hour, and she is always prepared for her lesson. I love that when I give her a new challenging piece, she will shake her head and say, 'No no no… I can’t do it! It’s too hard!' The following week she always comes to the lesson able to play the song perfectly! She is very easy to work with, and I enjoy every lesson with her."
High praise! Congratulations from all of us at San Marino Music Center.
Caroline Boles has been taking lessons at San Marino Music Center since 2015. As her flute instructor Ms. Aimee writes, "Caroline Boles is a talented young musician who both sings and plays the flute. Though she is not in a band program, she continues to take lessons and grow as a flutist. Caroline comes to lessons prepared and often with songs and pieces she picks herself and commits to learning. Many of her pieces have included difficult rhythms and notes in the highest and lowest ranges of the instrument. Caroline is a quick learner and shows great commitment to mastering the flute."
Well done Caroline. Congratulations from all of us at SMMC!
