Coralville Musician of the Month, June 2013 - Max Salemink
Max Salemink - Drums
Max, a 6th grader at West Branch Middle School, has studied with percussion teacher, Jon Wilson for two years.
He was recently included in the Pearl Project 108 video and says, “I learned about Project 108 from a YouTube video. I thought it would be fun to get myself out for others to see. I asked Mr. Wilson to film [me] and I submitted my video to Pearl Drums. A few months later the video came out and I was in it and very excited!”
Max hopes to be in a band someday. Currently, school concert band takes up some of Max’s time, but in his free time he enjoys skateboarding and remote control cars.
Max’s sister played drums in middle school. His Mom plays piano and strongly encouraged Max and his sister to take lessons, too.
