Urbandale May 2015 Musician of the Month: Calvin Braaten
By West Music Company
5/1/2015 9:25:00 AM
Calvin is a 6th grader at Urbandale Middle School. He has been taking piano lessons with Mary Fitzgerald for two years now. Mary says Calvin deserves recognition for finishing his recital piece and doing a great job each week! Calvin says “I like showing the music I play to my friends and family.”

When not playing the piano, Calvin plays soccer in the spring and football in the fall. His favorite musician is Mozart.

It may surprise you to learn that Calvin played little league football for four years; two seasons his team lost almost all of their games, and two seasons they were undefeated until the championship!

Congratulations, Calvin! Keep up the good work!
