Paige Justason is a flute student of Laura Phillips here at West Music Cedar Rapids. She is in the 10th grade at Independence Jr/Sr High School. She has studied with Laura for two years. Paige was a candidate for All-State her freshman and sophomore years and her musical goal is to make it in her junior and senior years as well. Another onel of Paige's goals is to improve herself as a musician and continue music throughout the rest of high school and college.

Her advice to other musicians is to practice and try your best, take on the musical opportunities given to you and have fun!

She loves playing music because she gets this feeling of satisfaction when she gets a piece together. The she plays it non-stop while enjoying each note and rhythm the piece contains. Paige plays flute in concert and marching bands and guitar in jazz band.  She likes science, reading and horse riding.

Paige enjoys classical music and some of her favorite composers are Tchaikovsky, Bach, Debussy, and Shostakovich. It often surprises people to learn how involved she is in music.

Congratulations, Paige!
