Skylar has been learning the guitar with Billy Lee Janey for 2 and ½ years and drums with Matt Bernemann for only 3 months! Skylar is in the 9th grade.
Skylar’s musical goal is to release his own E.P. by the end of 9th grade. His advice to other musicians is to look up to anyone who is currently making a living from their artistic work. Some may have had no idea what they were doing at some point.
He loves playing music because it creates a deeper connection and understanding of the subject. Anyone can listen to music and enjoy it but creating and interacting with it is something special.
Skylar participates in “A Few Good Men” which is a select choir at school, the Oakland Church Youth Band and Prairie Point 9th grade Band.
Some of Skylar’s hobbies include playing video games and writing stories. He listens to a variety of alternative music from My Chemical Romance to Dodie Clark to Slipknot and Twenty-One Pilot.
You might be surprised to learn that in 8th grade Skylar stuck a paper clip in an electrical outlet.
