In celebration of our 60th anniversary, we will feature NSMS alumni as part of our Alumni Spotlight series throughout 2020.
Which years were you at NSMS?
I was a student at NSMS from 2011-2019.
Who was your teacher?
What is a favorite NSMS memory?
One of my favorite memories from NSMS was when Mr. Blickenstaff assigned a duet to my PEPS class (half the class played one part, half played the other). We performed it at Jacobs Music on the various pianos, and I remember really enjoying it!
What are you doing now?
I am now studying architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design.
What role does your education at NSMS play in your life today?
I think my NSMS education has provided me with a wonderful, varied foundation in music. Now that I am at school, piano has become more of an activity that I do to unwind and have fun with. I really enjoy revisiting pieces I played in high school and trying to piece some of them together from memory.
We are glad that piano has become a source of enjoyment and relaxation for you. Keep on playing!
