Artist of the Month

Congratulations to Kjersten for being named Artist of the month.
Kjersten is a wonderful musician and a pillar in our community.  As a grade 10 student she consistently demonstrates her brilliance through performances on the flute and piano.  Kjersten is a: determined, dedicated and devoted student whose preparation and leadership demonstrates a genuine desire to learn and understand the fundamentals of music in order that she can become the best possible musician that she can be. Kjersten is not one to settle for “good enough” or “okay,” she is always looking for ways to improve so that she can succeed at whatever task is set out for her, no matter how long it takes.  She is wise beyond her years and she is a responsible and mature student.  In addition, she has a brilliant sense of humour and an absolute enthusiasm that always brightens any room she enters.  It is also worth mentioning that it is rare for a grade 10 student to audition for Sr. Jazz on piano and she holds the part with grace and flexibility.  Her accolades are not limited to Westwood, she also won her solo class in her local piano recital with a stellar rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
