Our music students never cease to inspire us! 5th grader Molly Johnston started learning the trumpet in the middle of the pandemic, when band class at school was only taking place online. In the face of the challenges of beginning a new instrument and navigating online classes, Molly has remained enthusiastic and makes the effort to email questions and asks for help when she needs it. What a great choice for December 2020’s Music Student of the Month!
“The best part about playing music is getting to explore different sounds and making my own sound combinations.’
Orcas Elementary Band student, Molly Johnston
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 2020-21 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
