Kyra is a violin student with Andrea Alert in West Music Cedar Falls. She has been studying with Andrea for almost two years now! She is currently a freshman at West Waterloo High School, where she is a member of the orchestra. Andrea nominated Kyra because she is always prepared for lessons. She has become a very stong and dedicated violinist and practices her instrument daily.
Kyra's musical goal is to make her love for the violin a lifelong pursuit. She has experienced great musical accomplishement by auditioning and being accepted into NIYO (Northern Iowa Youth Orchestra)!
Kyra's advice to other music students is to practice lots and lots with a lot of repetition, and practice every day if possible. Also, to definitely enjoy it!
She comes from a long line of family musicians joining her in her love of music. Her mom plays the flute, her brother plays the cello, her aunt plays the sax, and her step-mom has a vocal degree from Wartburg College!
Kyra's hobbies are singing, swimming, and a short try at school band. One thing she's done that she loved was a trip to Pikes Peak in Colorado - what a view!
Congratulations, Kyra! Keep up the great work!
