This is the first time we’ve had the honor of showcasing two music students at once, and the first time we’ve had twins! INTEMPO’s lead teaching artist, Scott Hill, nominated Aman and Akash for SpreadMusicNow’s Music Student of the Month.

Aman and Akash have excelled during the shift to online learning and during INTEMPO’s new ear training program components. They are always on time, practice their instruments, and participate in classes. They even attended Scott’s online concert and have helped out during the tri-lingual library program about reading at a young age. We are delighted to feature these twin students.
