Student Interviews: Finn & Isabella!

The past two years have given us a new appreciation for a lot of things: teachers, childcare professionals, people who stay home when they’re sick, parents, hand sanitizer. We at Musication wanted to extend that appreciation to the heart and soul of our program: our students! We asked a few of our students to weigh in on lessons, their favorite artists and more. We hope you’ll enjoy this new series: Student Interviews. This week we hear from Finn and Isabella!

I think it’s reading the notes and sometimes moving my fingers in difficult ways.
