Wingspan: What made you choose your instrument?

“I think the violin is a very versatile instrument that can be played in many different forms, so I think that’s why I gravitated towards picking the violin. Plus, I was already heavily involved in Hindustani Classical music at the time and the violin is a supporting instrument in that art as well.” 

Wingspan: What made you want to join the orchestra? 

“Orchestra always seemed like such a fun way to just relax and it’s very helpful to have a musical outlet throughout the day, especially between such an academic heavy schedule. The liberty program is super amazing both socially and musically!” 

Wingspan: What is your favorite memory in orchestra?

“My favorite memory in orchestra was when we had just finished playing UIL pieces and we got back to school and just played fun games like taboo and mafia.”

Wingspan: Are you considering continuing your instrument beyond high school? Why? 

“I’m unsure if I want to continue beyond high school, especially with my chosen career track but there’s definitely no way I’m letting go of enjoying classical music whether that’s through playing my instrument or just simply listening.”

Wingspan: How does music impact your life?

“Music really impacts the way you approach obstacles and manage multiple things at once. When playing a composition there’s a lot of factors and techniques that need to be focused on in such little time and all at once so it’s definitely impacted the way I manage extra things in my life.”

Wingspan: What life lessons has orchestra/playing your instrument taught you?

“The biggest life lesson orchestra and playing the violin has taught me is to be on time and you can’t improve without practice or spending time on things. It’s difficult to be a good musician when you’re not on time whether it’s in the music or to rehearsals and especially if you want to perfect something or learn something, practicing or time is always needed.”
