Lark Christensen-Szalanski

Student of Gayla Drake

Lark plays violin, bongos, and drums. She started playing violin last year with Gayla Drake and has also studied with Kristin Conrad and Blake Shaw. She has played drums since 2012. Lark graduated from City High in 2010 and from Transitions Services Center in 2011. She is currently busy working at Bickford Cottage, North Dodge Athletic Club, and Iowa Hawkeyes Football Office.

Gayla says, “Of all my students, Lark probably loves the violin the most. She’s extremely dedicated, practices every day, and loves making music! We have so much fun in our lessons! She’s a wonderful student and a joy to teach! I’m so glad I get to be her teacher!” Lark would also like to learn to play the piano and guitar. Her brother plays cello, her sister sings, and her mom plays piano, organ, and autoharp. What a musical family!

Keep up the great work, Lark!
