Student of the Month - November 2020
Matthew M.-13, piano
Matthew is an 8th grader at LC 7-8 and has played the piano for 3-1/2 years. He is an avid sportsman, and loves playing basketball and tennis, watching sports, in addition to watching anime and playing the piano. But better than all of this, he feels he is best at being a good sleeper. His favorite subject is math and he thinks if school was shorter, the world would be a better place! The best thing in the world is his family, and he most admires his grandpa! When he grows up, he’d like to be a helpful person. In the past year, he's made tremendous progress and tackled pieces like Clementi's Sonatina No. 3 in C Major, Beethoven's Fur Elise and Bach's Prelude in C Major. He really likes George Winston and has begun learning his music (playing Variations on the Canon is his goal as a pianist). He loves that playing music can take his mind off of different things that are troubling you. This is Matthew's third time earning Student of the Month!
Matthew began studying piano at age 10.
Matthew played Valerie Roth Roubos's "The Gathering Storm" on our Fall 2019 recital.
Matthew played Ruth Perdew's "Bubble Blues" on his very first recital in the Fall of 2017.
