Silas is a multi-instrumentalist who can play both band and strings instruments — a rare skillset at middle school age. He is learning the bass now and his Strings teacher says she’s ‘super excited’ that he is in the program. Well, MAG is pretty excited to watch this young one develop his talent in the OISD music program. Be sure to watch for him at school concerts!
Music is me!
Orcas 6th grade band student Silas Kok

Thank you so much to the Orcas Island businesses who are sponsoring this monthly series throughout the 2018-19 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
