Des Moines Piano Gallery April 2016 Musician of the Month: Eleanor Meek

Eleanor Meek is a piano student at West Music Des Moines Piano Gallery. She has been taking lessons with Paige Pederson for 1 1/2 years!

Eleanor says her musical goal is "to play at my local church someday, and maybe learn the violin". Her advide to other musicians is "even if you think the instrument you are playing is hard, keep going. It will make more sense and you will love it more."

When asked what she loves about music, she says "I love the fact that if you love it so much and focus, you can make beautiful music."

Outside of music, Eleanor participates in dance and church group. Her interests include horses, animals and reading, and she dislikes broccoli! Her favorite artists are Crowder, Matthew West, and Shawn Mendes.  She also likes hip-hop and Christian music. It may suprise you to learn that  Eleanor is an only child.

Her teacher, Paige Pederson, says: "Eleanor is a joy to work with every week! She is always pushing herself to be a better musician and has even set a goal to finish the next level by the end of the summer!"

Great job, Eleanor! Keep up the good work!
