Rana Saba is a 4th grade student in Coralville. She has been taking voice lessons with Jessica Saunders at West Music for almost a year. Her teacher, Jessica, has this to say about working with her:
“Rana is an exceptional student. Since starting lessons she has performed on many recitals and completed two theory workbooks. She has a lovely voice and wants to learn all she can!”
Rana loves to sing because it is fun! She likes to learn about the notes because it is interesting and also helps in her school music class. She has some great advice to share with other musicians: “Work hard and listen to the teacher, practice until you can sing without the words, and try to pretend there is nobody there when there is a recital (when you're nervous)."
Her favorite musicians are Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, and Katy Perry. She also loves the music from Annie and Disney movies. Her favorite animal is the Red Panda. In Rana’s free time she enjoys gymnastics, swimming, computers, comics, playing with dogs, and eating ice cream! Rana has lived in three countries and speaks English, Arabic and, some German.
Congratulations, Rana! Great job!
