What is your favorite musical moment in high school? - I always like rehearsing music for Pizazz!
How has being involved in the high school music department impacted you? - I have always loved music, but once I joined chorus and band it allowed me to grow in both playing and singing music. I don't listen to music normally anymore. I constantly try to pick out the different instruments used in a song and enjoy music more than before because of that.
What words of wisdom would you share with the underclassmen music students? - Even if you just took the classes for an easy arts credit, you will enjoy yourself because it is a lot of fun. If you genuinely love music, pick either band or chorus or both and do it as many years as you can!
Congratulations, Heidi! Thank you for your dedication to the band and chorus and for sharing your musical talents with us for all of these years!!
