April 2019 Music Student of the Month – Royce Tye

It’s only his first year in Band but 5th-grader Royce Tye already dreams of playing all his favorite songs.  In a heartwarming twist, he already has his own trumpet that has been in the family for almost a century.  What a fantastic start! Congratulations on being April’s Student Musician of the Month, we can’t wait to hear your favorites!

Music makes you a happier person. It’s like medicine.
