Roma is 11 ½ years old, and is about to start 6th grade. She has been playing piano for over 5 years, and will be starting the Bass in middle school. Roma has a younger brother who plays the guitar, and an aunt that plays piano. In fact, it was her aunt who inspired her to start piano lessons! When Roma was 6, she would often visit her aunt a couple times a week and really enjoyed watching her practice. After a few months, she wanted to give lessons a try, and has stuck with it ever since. So far, her favorite piece she has learned is “Hedwig's Theme” from Harry Potter. Aside from piano, Roma really likes ballet, and has been dancing since she was little. She took a break for a while, but is now back at it and having a great time.
A note from her teacher:
“Roma is a talented, hard-working student who takes initiative and is always yearning for more. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Roma for over 5 years, but within the past two or so years (including 1 ½ years of virtual lessons), she has progressed immensely. Roma shows up prepared for every lesson and always with a great attitude. She even takes the time to learn pieces on her own (as you see in the video above)! I’m very proud of the talented young lady she has become, and I have no doubt great things lay ahead in her future.” - Ashley Wenzel
