Perspectives on music education. Have a point of view? Let us know. You're amongst friends.
Elijah Hill is a Marching Crusader with The Roots of Music in New Orleans. He's in 3rd grade and has been playing the trombone for two years.
My name is Elijah Hill and I was born in Charlotte, NC but I have been living in New Orleans since I was a baby. When I was 3, my parents bought me a drum set because I always watched videos of drummers and drumming on my basketballs in the house. I love music and I am currently playing the trombone since joining The Roots of Music program almost two years ago. I was nominated by my band director, Mr. Darren Rodgers.
Being a part of Roots of Music has taught me the importance of being disciplined and focused so that I can get better and better at playing the trombone.
I have two favorite pieces of music that I love to play: Torture and Dreamin’.
I love playing Fortnight on my Nintendo Switch as well as collecting and trading Pokemon cards.
My favorite subject in school is math because it helps me to be a better musician.
I want to go to St. Augustine for High School and Southern University for College and I hope to become a musician.
