December Student of the Month: Jonah Pollone

The musical mindset of Jonah Pollone is absolutely amazing! Having taking lessons at Music and Rock School for 2+ years Jonah has grown into a mature seasoned percussionist. Jonah also plays the guitar as a secondary instrument.

August Student of the Month: Savannah Smith

Some of our favorite students to work with at Music & Rock School are those that come to us with prior musical experience, or have been labeled “musically gifted” at some point.  These students typically have a passion for exploring and learning about music on all levels.  That is certainly the case with our August Student of the Month, Savannah Smith.  At 15 years old she is already proficient on more instruments that most people will pick up in a lifetime.  Her talents include guitar, singing and songwriting, piano, drums, ukulele, mandolin, banjo and xylophone!

July Student of the Month: Karen Campbell

Musical roots seem to run in the Campbell family, and Karen Campbell seems to be their inspiration! Karen Campbell has been taking guitar lesson at Music and Rock School for about a year, not to mention her husband who is currently in lessons, and two sons who have taken lessons in the past.

June Student of the Month: Jessica Tilley

Jessica Tilley is just 11 years old, but you would never know it by her retro taste in music. Some of her favorite artists include Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, and Bob Dylan. Jessica has studied both voice and guitar at Music & Rock School. Most recently, she is focusing on her guitar skills in her weekly lessons. Additionally, she's participated as a lead vocalist in our Summer Rock Camp, our 2013 Winter Concert in January, and will perform both as a lead singer and a solo acoustic performer at our Summer Concert this month.

April Student of the Month: Amber Leigh W.

16-year-old Amber Leigh is the total rock’n’roll package: the look, the attitude and the skills to back it up. She has been a student at MaRS for more than three years, first as a bass student, but eventually switching over to guitar within the last year. Leigh has also not been shy about trying her hand at all of our extracurricular programs; she’s participated in a few Masters Programs, a couple Studio Sessions and nearly all of our concerts.
