January 2021 Music Student of the Month – Mila Marinova

Mila, a cellist in her sophomore year, is a go-getter in the Strings program. She chose to learn the cello in 8th grade because some of her favorite pieces were written for the instrument. She enjoys practicing and finds is very rewarding when a piece she has worked hard on starts to sound like it is supposed to. We are so impressed by her dedication! Way to go Mila!

“Make sure you choose an instrument you’ll enjoy playing and set goals for yourself (and/or your ensemble) and set goals to achieve them.”

Orcas HS Strings cellist, Mila Marinova
