Quad Cities June 2015 Musician of the Month: Avery Monson
By West Music Company
6/1/2015 3:16:00 PM
At only 10 years old, Avery has been playing violin for 4 years, ukulele for 2 and taking drums with Ken for 2 years.  She is in 5th grade at Orion Elementary School.

She plays basketball, LOVES legos, has been in the Youth Symphony Orchestra for two years and next year is super stoked to be in band where she will be playing percussion. To her, music is comforting creativity and it gives her something to do. Her favorite musician is David Garrett, her favorite show is Everybody Loves Raymond.

She has a chihuahua named Charlie and over the summer she looks forward to swimming.

"She amazes me with how quickly she picks things up.  She really works hard on everything that I throw at her.  She is going to be a great drummer when all is said and done." -Ken Smith

Great job, Avery! Keep up the good work!
