BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
Seattle Music Partners (SMP) at Madrona Tuesday & Thurs afternoons
Nadia and Nyal
Meet Nadia and Nyal!
Nadia is a fifth grader at Madrona K-8 and Nyal attends Roosevelt High School. Here are their answers to some questions:
Why did you choose to play the trombone?
chose it because I wanted to play something different from the rest of
my family. That way no one can tell me "no it's this note, no it's that
note," because they all play the clarinet and the piano.
At first I started playing the trombone because that's what my mom
wanted. Then in 6th grade I started listening to professional trombone
players, and they made it feel right!
Why did you join SMP?
I first started playing, everyone was really far ahead of me and I
needed help. I've always heard, "give back, give back to your society"
and I thought this would be a really good way to do it.
What have you learned from Nyal so far this year?
: I've learned not to puff out my cheeks, to keep my chin down, and how to take good breaths.
