Dearest supporters and friends of my recent scholarship campaign:
I’m pleased to announce that I have selected and begun lessons with my two scholarship students!
Alex B. is a senior at Fridley High school, a student of Mike Pearson. He’s been playing trombone for almost 8 years and also plays bass trombone and tuba. He hasn’t had lessons since he began band in middle school and is excited to learn more about technique and theory. He hopes to start classes at Anoka-Ramsey Community College next fall.
Paul B is Alex’s classmate at Fridley, in his junior year. He’s been playing for 6 years and has never had regular lessons. He also plays bass trombone in the school’s jazz band. He wants to know more about his instrument and the types of music he can use it for, as his musical palate is extremely varied. After high school he has plans to join the Air Force.
I’m really excited to see what these two do this year and what their progress will be! Thank you again for all your help in making this a reality.
