We are celebrating our piano student Keira (Age 11)! Keira has been with the Irvine School of Music for over four years, and started out in Piano Teams! She is currently taking private piano lessons from Teacher Daniel! She had this to say about her experiences:

  • Are there any tips you can offer other students practicing at home in between classes?
  • I recommend practicing every day for at least 15 minutes on each song. I try to get it in everyday to create a habit. It’s good to set a schedule.
  • What is your favorite color?
  • My favorite color is light blue or light purple.
  • What school do you go to?
  • I go to Stone Creek Elementary School.
  • What do you enjoy most about your lessons here?
  • I enjoy how Mr. Daniel composes my favorite songs, like Thunder from imagine Dragons or Be Happy by Dixie Damelio so I can play it on the piano.
  • What would you like to be when you grow up?
  • When I grow up, I want to be a pharmacist, doctor, or nurse practitioner.
