Mathilda Lehman, a 5th grader at Mount Vernon Middle School, has studied guitar with Mike Williams for about two months.
Mathilda’s musical goal is to invent a brand new instrument that has never been seen or heard before. Mathilda also plays the trumpet. Her advice to other musicians is to go for the goal and always, “Be awesome!!!”
She loves that music helps her relieve stress (unless she can’t hit the high note.) Mathilda participates in band and choir at school. She wants to be an engineer (not the train kind!) when she grows up. In her spare time, she loves to play Minecraft.
Something surprising about Mathilda is that she is proud to be a nerd!
In her lessons she is working on Hedwig’s Theme (from Harry Potter) on trumpet and Bohemian Rhapsody on guitar.
