Coralville April 2017 Musician of the Month: Alyssa Wasmund
By West Music Company

Alyssa Wasmund is in the 7th grade. She studies voice with Jessica Saunders and piano with the Nancy Cree Keyboard Learning Centers. Her voice instructor nominated her to be a featured student because “Alyssa is an excellent all-around student and musician. As a singer, she has a lovely voice that is mature for her age, without being forced. Alyssa is always willing to try new styles of music and we have worked on everything from pop to Italian art song! Alyssa is wonderfully musical and expressive during performances.” She also plays the flute.  Alyssa earned a 1 rating at the recent IMTA piano festival and has started to work on her second Italian song in her voice studies!

She has always wanted to sing in musicals and also likes modern rock music. She loves that music is not just about creativity, but also about learning new things and challenging yourself. Her advice to other musicians is “Never give up. Even if you mess up in the middle of a song, don’t stop!” Other hobbies include reading, writing, drawing, ice skating and GLOW club. 

Congratulations, Alyssa!
