Jeongwoo is a sophomore at Iowa City West High. He has been studying flute with Sarah Beland for 3 years, but started playing the flute in his school band when he was in 5th grade.
Sarah says she’s been so impressed by Jeongwoo’s determination to achieve his goals. He is always up for a challenge and plays with great technique and maturity. He was recently selected for the Iowa All-State Band, something that they have worked toward together for the past 3 years, and she’s proud to be part of his success.
Joeongwoo’s musical goals are getting a first part and a better chair at All-State next year. His advice to other musicians is to practice and play the music they you like. Jeongwoo says he loves playing music because it expresses feelings better than words, and the satisfaction of being able to play hard songs/runs.
Aside from music, he’s involved in debate, robotics, and math club.
Great job, Jeongwoo! Keep it up!
