Cedar Falls May 2016 Musicican of the Month: Delaney
By West Music Company
5/1/2016 8:00:00 AM
Delaney is currently in 10th grade at Cedar Falls High School. She has been taking piano lessons with Virginia Lee for the past ten years. Delaney is a motivated student and an enthusiastic learner. When she first started playing, she didn’t like to practice, so her parents encouraged her to practice. Now, she practices every day on her own and she loves it. It has opened many other musical doors in her life, and her advice for other musicians is to stick with it!

Delaney loves being able to express herself through music and bring her passion forward when she plays. In addition to playing the piano, Delaney is involved in orchestra, concert choir, art and writing. She also likes composing music and writing lyrics. Her favorite musicians are Buddy Holly, Aimee Mann, and Death Cab for Cutie, to name a few. Her favorite genres are indie, alternative, and jazz. Some might be interested to find out that she is very interested in fashion and design.

Virginia Lee acknowledges Delaney’s perseverance, enthusiasm and her determination to keep on practicing, and she has enjoyed watching Delaney progress so well over the years.

Way to go, Delaney!
