My favorite piece I learned to play was the Incredibles, even though I did that in my spare time, I love Pixar soundtracks and I was so excited when I actually played it with a minimal amount of mistakes.

Music Haven has taught me that I need to be more serious when working with my peers, or coworkers. 

Any advice?

Please practice. For you and your teacher's sake.

What is your plan for next year? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

To finish college, and possible taking a gap year to work to start paying for my college debt. 

I have been playing for 8 years.

My favorite memory at Music Haven was when we we got to work with IRIS; it was just a nice feel good feeling. 

What would you say to somebody who says classical music is dead and that young people aren’t interested in it?

Other than that they are wrong? That playing a string instrument is one of the best things you can do for your mind, body, and soul. It's one of the best decisions I made in my ENTIRE life.
