Quad Cities January 2016 Musician of the Month: Maddux Dieckman

Maddux Dieckman is in 5th grade and has been taking piano lessons with Clara Nielsen here at West Music Quad Cities for five years.  His goals for his lessons are to play really challenging songs, really well, by practicing a lot! His favorite part about playing music is the sounds he makes.  He feels very proud of himself when he plays a song really well for someone.  Maddux's advice to other musicians is to practice a lot! He says "If you don't like the way it sounds when you play it, find out why and practice some more!"

Outside of music, Maddux stays busy by playing baritone in band, baseball, and science club.  He recently made water power rockets and paper rockets there!  Additionally, Maddux loves playing video games like Minecraft, Terria, and Call of Duty.  He also enjoys reading about mythology and non-fiction articles that he has to read in class. His favorite musicians are Coldplay and AC/DC

Something that may surprise you to learn about Maddux is that he has been wearing contacts for almost a year.

Congratulations, Maddux! Great job!
