My program has taught me how to play the instruments and read music notes. Reading full, half, and quarter notes is also learning Math.

Jingle Bells

What do you like to do for fun? Do you have any hobbies?

Besides playing drums and piano- I like playing soccer, video and computer games, swimming, and playing outside with friends.

What is your favorite subject in school? Why?

My favorite subjects are science and music. I learn how things work and are made. I get to research stuff and I also read facts on how animals live. In music, I get to sing and listen and learn about people who make music.

What are your plans for the future?

To be the greatest soccer player, become a great musician, and help teach other kids how to play music.
