Urbandale March 2016 Musician of the Month: Mikayla Jensen
By West Music Company
3/1/2016 8:01:00 AM
Mikayla Jensen has been studying piano with Janet Winship for 2 years at the West Music Piano Gallery in Urbandale. She is in 5th grade and also plays the flute. Janet says "Mikayla does not shy away from the work that needs to be done to achieve a beautiful sound and welcomes music that challenges her abilities with a cheerful and hopeful attitude. She is a delight to teach."

Mikayla's other musical goals include learning to play the guitar. Her advice to other musicians is that music is something you can do at any age, so don't give up. Mikayla is involved in her school's band, plays in piano festivals, plays basketball, and swims. She also likes to sing, play video games, and draw. Mikayla's favorite styles of music are jazz, pop, and country.

It may suprise you to learn that Mikayla has traveled to Colorado and went body surfing in the Gulf of Mexico!

Congratulations, Mikayla! Great job!
