Oona has been taking piano lessons for years with us! She is 10 years old and started playing piano at age 5. Now, she plays various other instruments besides the piano, including violin, mandolin, drums, theremin, musical saw, guitar, and ukulele. Oona shared some interesting facts about her musical journey and what she treasures about CSM lessons! Check out her interview:
1-What inspired you to learn the piano?
Oona: "I enjoyed banging on a plastic toy piano in our living room. Now, I still don't have a real wooden piano, but my keyboard is close enough.
2-Tell us more about your lessons at CSM!
I like having my own room to practice in. In my house, the entire bottom floor is connected, so there is always noise when I practice. My favorite part, however, is definitely that big white dog that comes before recitals.
3- What's your favorite song?
Yes, currently, I like the soundtrack for the space exploration video game Outer Wilds.
4-How does music influence your life?
It influences me to the point that I can't sleep without it.
5-What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Talk to my dogs like they are human beings, bake(A LOT), draw, and practice my other seven instruments that I play."
CSM is proud of Oona's accomplishments and we wish her a bright future, filled with joy and music!
