As many of us know, Donoho has an amazing private music lesson program. From piano to violin lessons, Donoho Arts Collaborative has it all! I had the chance to interview senior Lily Wiedmer who has been taking private piano lessons at Donoho for a very long time.

Q: How long have you been taking piano?
LW: “I have taken it for about 12 years now.”

Q: How would you describe your teacher?
LW: “Ms. Thompson is sweet, encouraging, and very understanding.”

Q: Why do you like piano?
LW: “Well, not a lot of people do it. It is pretty unique. Also, it is a life-long skill.”

Q: Has piano helped you in any other activities? If so, which ones?
LW: “It helped me with my perspective. Also, when I was younger it used to help me with
math.”

Lily is a member of Tri-M (National Music Honor Society), and she is also a strong student within several academic subjects, with which music is scientifically proven to help. We wish her luck with her future piano endeavors!
