vincent cotton recorderVincent is in the 4th grade and plays the piano and recorder. He has been studying with West Music Instructor, Terri Brandt, for two years. Terri nominated Vincent to be Musician of the Month because he works very hard and progresses each week. He has improved with stepping and skipping intervals and is very excited about music.

Vincent plays music for fun and has a goal to learn really hard songs and play in a band with his friends. His advice to other musicians is to believe in yourself and to start with easy tasks, working up to more difficult goals. He loves that music makes him feel like he has a special talent and makes him feel good in general. His all-time favorite piece to play is “Hot Cross Buns”.

Some other hobbies that Vincent has is playing games like Pokémon on his 2DS. Also, you may be surprised to learn that he has been dubbed “the Rhythm King” because he is very good at musical rhythms and counting.

Congratulations, Vincent!
