CamerynRobbins

Cameryn is in 5th grade, and likes math best in school. When talking about types of music she likes and current performers, she says that she doesn't have a favorite type of music or a favorite singer - she likes all different types of music. Her favorite piece to play on the piano is Ice Skaters (the piece above, arranged by N. Faber).  When she's not figuring out math equations or sitting down at the piano, you can find Cameryn on the softball field. Her favorite food is mac n cheese. 

 

Congrats on all the great work, Cameryn! 

NATALIERobbins

Congratulations to Natalie Robbins on being chosen for the Student Spotlight! Natalie's hard work and great attitude are paying off, and she is doing awesome work at the piano!

 

In the above video, Natalie is showing off her work on "No Moon Tonight", arranged by N. Faber. She loves this piece, but says her favorite piece is "The Juggler" (also arranged by Faber!) When she is not taking her own musical talents to the piano, Natalie enjoys listening to her favorite singer, Sean Mendes. In school, Natalie is a big fan of library and art. If she is not flipping pages in a gripping book or creating musical or fine art, Natalie can be found on the softball field. Natalie's favorite food are meatballs.

 

Congrats on all the great work, Natalie!

RohanRao

Rohan did such a great job at the Piano Guild auditions held at West Chester University of PA on June 6th. Rohan performed five pieces and executed beautifully; the judge made special note of his musicality. He passed the exam, making him a district winner!

When Rohan is not delivering a great performance, he can be found working hard at Lionville Middle School. His favorite subjects in school are math and science. Outside of school, he loves robotics, playing basketball, and practicing the piano (of course) ! 

Congrats on the recent success, Rohan!

SrstiNiceorgaw

Srsti Niceorgaw has been doing some great work on the piano, and we are happy to announce her as this week's student spotlight! She recently performed at the Eagleview Farmer's Market, and is developing into the quite the confident musician!

Going into the fifth grade, Srsti is looking forward to continuing studying science, her favorite subject in school. 

 

When it comes to music, Srsti enjoys pop songs, and her favorite singer is Rachel Platten. Srsti, in fact, has an awesome rendition of Platten's "Fight Song" in her repertoire. Her favorite song to play, however, is a Bollywood song called "Piyu Bole." That is the song featured in the video!

 

When she is not playing the piano, Srsti is active with gymnastics; and she fuels up with her favorite food: Fried rice with chicken and veggies.

Our students are exceptional. In order to highlight the phenomenal work and progress of the students, we want to share it with you.
