Elizabeth has been playing with Lakeland Youth Symphony for 3 years and will be studying Chemical-Engineering at MIT in the fall. She will be taking my violin to college and plans to play with the MIT Symphony Orchestra (MITSO) or with a chamber group.
“Playing the violin has taught me the value of perseverance and collaboration to perform music together. I’ve learned to be patient with myself and others in solving problems, whether they are related to music or not. The common goal of becoming a better orchestra unites us as musicians. I would advise future students to never be afraid to ask for help when they need it. Lakeland is a supportive environment that encourages everyone to be the best, and reaching out for help is always welcome. It is also important to listen to others, both while playing in a large ensemble and in day-to-day interactions with fellow musicians. Finally, one must never be judgmental of other people. We are all here to learn and to have fun!“
Isha has been playing with Lakeland Youth Symphony for 6 years and will be attending Rutgers Honors College in the fall on a pre-medical track with plans to go to medical school. She will bring her violin with her to college and may have a minor in music. Her favorite memory with LYS was visiting all the historical sites of Boston on our field trip!
“Playing my instrument has taught me to be patient and hardworking, but also to enjoy the little things in life, like a crescendo in a symphony or the satisfaction of mastering a hard passage. I would encourage students who follow me to enjoy their time in orchestra. Playing an instrument with a group of other students is a unique and beautiful experience, and you should savor every moment of it because music has the capability to change your life.”
We’ll be back in September with a wonderful musical experience for your children. New student auditions are June 16, and we would love to meet you!
