Student of the Month - January 2022

Ramya - 14, violin

Ramya has been playing the violin for 5 years and also studies Carnatic (Indian) violin. She’s an 8th grader at McKinley, where she likes math best. She also likes singing, playing board games, gardening, fundraising, yoga, playing violin, and spending time with friends and family. Family and friends are the best things in the world to her and she is best at conversing with them and spending time with them. She wants to be a doctor, musician, and humanitarian when she grows up, and she’d love to have a conversation with Malala. She most admires her brother, and she’d really like to see world peace. She currently plays in a string quartet through CYMG, and has played in a piano trio with several fellow Liz Elliot students in the past.  Her favorite piece so far is the Rieding Concerto, she loves the music of Pablo Sarasate and watching Two Set videos, and her favorite thing about music is succeeding at it. Her goal is to convey a different story to each person who hears her play, and to make them feel good through her music. She has been Student of the Month 3 times and has won the points challenge or come in the top 5 every term since she started lessons with Liz 4 years ago. In fact, she just won our latest challenge with an average score of 35.400!

Ramya played Oscar Rieding's Concerto No. 1 in G Major at the Fall 2021 recital.

Here's Ramya at age 10, when she first started violin.

Here's Ramya playing "Allegro" at her first recital in 2017.
