Benjamin Sahlstrom My name is Benjamin Sahlstrom. I am 13 years old and I have appreciated the opportunity to partici- pate in the Westbrook Walnut Grove Art pARTners program. I chose to study violin under Marjorie and Tiffany Holmes from Dovray. They taught me persever- ance and diligence in prac- tice. There are days that it can be hard to keep on when things are a challenge, but practice pays off. I have just completed SUZUKI violin book #1. My favorite song in book #1 is The Happy Farmer. I like this song because it has interesting bowing called brush strokes. Currently I am working on the Chorus from Handel's "Judas Maccabaeus'. It has 3 part harmony that I am doing with my sister and mother. -We are hoping to polish it so we can play it for a church offertory. Violin is great! Kellys in Magnet Arts Program Forrest Kelly I am a recipient of a grant from the Arts Magnet pARTners Program, which has enabled my work with my violin teachers, Marjorie and Tiffany Holmes of Dovray. After arriving at les- sons and unpacking my vio- lin, I play through my songs with Tiffany while Marjorie comments and suggests improvements. Once I have mastered the mechanics of a song, we work on expression such as using vibrato and proper dynamics. Currently, I am working on several pieces by Bach, Seitz, and Kreisler while also practic- ing Swedish, Irish, and American folk music. The fact that my mentors encourage me to pursue many types of music to excellence challenges me in my musical education. Jack Kelly Every Monday at 12:15, I grab my trumpet case, get on my bike, and ride to the Lutheran Church. There I work with my mentor, Page Kern, on various exercises and pieces. First we warm up on our mouthpieces. Next, we play long tones, boring to do but vital to increase lung capacity. After that, we go through a plethora of exercises, from endurance builders to range stretchers. Then we work on a solo or performance piece. In the past, Page has helped me to prepare for talent shown, band and orchestra concerts, senior citizens per- formances, and church pieces. Sometimes we sight read from a hymnal or one of Page's books. Finally, we warm down and pack up. Encouraging and helpful, Page has assisted in rapidly advancing my trumpet training.
