Cedar Rapids November 2016 Musician of the Month: Lizzie Leu
By West Music Company

Lizzie is a bass guitar and ukulele student of Billy Lee Janey and has been studying with him for two and a half years. Lizzie is a senior at Xavier High School.  Her musical goal is to finish her high school music career with Division 1 ratings in concert and marching bands. Her advice to other musicians is to "practice, but go into it thinking 'this is going to be fun not work!'” She is obsessed with how music can drastically affect the way you think and feel in a matter of minutes. "It’s a stress relief for me and overall feels better after a band rehearsal or music lesson."

Lizzie is involved in marching band, concert and jazz bands, show choir, and combo groups. She enjoys mock trials and tutoring in school. Her other interests include biking, reading, and camping. She likes to hang out at the Newbo Market area here in Cedar Rapids.

Her favorite musicians and composers include Joni Mitchell, Claude Debussy, and The Smiths.

You might be surprised to learn that Lizzie has an embarrassingly large collection of vinyl records!

Congratulations Lizzie! Keep up the great work!
