west music drum lessonsBo is in first grade and has been taking drum lessons with Kip Roelfsema for 2 years. Upon nominating Bo for Musician of the Month, his instructor had the following to say:

"Bo has the patience and perseverance of a Buddhist Monk! In addition, he is also a quick learner. Being a quick learner is nothing without patience and perseverance. Bo possesses all 3 qualities in equal measure. Mr. Bo also has a warm personality, and a smile that lights up the entire studio!"

Bo hopes to play the trumpet and flute one day, and his advice to other musicians is to practice daily and to “work until you get everything perfect”. He loves the tone of music and that it makes him feel good.

In addition to music, Bo also enjoys building with Legos, playing football, and building snow forts. Above all, he likes to play instruments and believes you can do anything if you work hard. He also expressed that his favorite musician is Led Zeppelin. Finally, Bo said that we would be surprised to learn that he sings at his church!

Congratulations, Bo!
