December 2019 Music Student of the Month – Keyla Salinas Cruz

Keyla was drawn to the violin for its beautiful sound and has found it easy to learn.  At Orcas Elementary, 5th grade students start learning an instrument of their choice as part of the school music program.  Keyla, however, has been playing for 2.5 years and takes private lessons after school.  We love her dedication to learning the violin!  Congratulations on being recognized Music Student of the Month in December 2019!

“Playing music makes me feel better.”

The Music Student of the Month series recognizes Orcas Island Public School musicians who work hard at their musical skills and whose love of music is an inspiration to their fellow student musicians.  Thank you so much to the Orcas Island businesses who are sponsoring this monthly series throughout the 2019-20 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
