Phuong studies drums with Kip Roelfsema at West Music Cedar Falls. He deserves this honor because he has a very good attitude, and he likes to learn! Phuong is not afraid to ask questions and is very methodical with his practice routine, diligently doing it at least five days a week. He has gone from learning the beginning concepts, to performing shuffles, straight time, drumfills, and also learning to use his metronome! He has an awesome goal of becoming a drumset instructor himself one day. Look out, Kip! Phuong has many other activities he enjoys such as basketball and drawing. He has a brother, Sunny, who plays guitar. If asked about what his favorite time of year would be, he would tell you it is Christmas-time! Phuong’s advice to other musicians, he says without hesitation, is “don’t slack!!”
Keep up the great work, Phuong!
