Marion September 2014 Musician of the Month: Nic Ryan
By Author: West Music Conservatory

Our Musician of the Month for September is Nic Ryan. Nic is a piano student of Kari Sicard here at West Music in Marion. He is in the 5th grade at Arthur Elementary School. He has studied with Kari since January of 2014. His musical goal is to finish Level 6.

Nic's advice to other musicians is to space out your practice times instead of all in one block per week. He loves to play music because it helps build discipline. Another activity Nic enjoys in his spare time is activities with the Boy Scouts. He also loves Pokemon.

Nic's favorite composer is Beethoven and he likes to listen to the music of Coldplay. A surprise about Nic that he has told us is that he doesn't like cheese! Congratulations Nic on receiving Musician of the Month from us at West Music!
