Cedar Rapids July 2016 Musician of the Month: Sarah King
By West Music Company

Sarah King is an alto saxophone student of Laura Phillips. She has been studying with Laura for 1 year. She attends Xavier High School and is in the 11th grade.

Laura nominated Sarah because she is an outstanding, hardworking saxophonist. Her honors include: solo saxophone in her school’s jazz band which was a wild card competitor at State Jazz, her ensemble’s Division 1 rating at state solo/ensemble, and selection as drum major for next year’s marching band!  She has graduated to advanced level method books and knows ALL her scales.

Some of her goals are to lead by her own example of excellent performance skills, and her relevant interactive and peer leadership skills.

Sarah loves music because she likes how it feels when she can lose herself in playing music. She is in the concert band, jazz band, and pit orchestra at Xavier. She also participates in track. Her musical goal is to be better in music than she is now. Her advice to other musicians is, “Don’t quit band!”

In her free time Sarah enjoys working out and the music of Beethoven, Bruno Mars, pop and classical music. You also might be surprised to learn that Sarah was born in Florida!

Congratulations, Sarah!
