This month, we’re excited to feature piano student Annabelle Rusco!

Annabelle takes piano lessons with Ms. Julie Koenig at Flourish. She has worked hard to accomplish several goals in the past year! She earned the top number of points in our 2019 Practice Challenge, completed an entire piano book, and participated in the Royal Conservatory of Music exam. Ms. Julie says that Annabelle is one of her most motivated, hard-working students!

Here is a little bit more about Annabelle, 6th grade:

How long have you taken piano lessons?
I’ve taken them for about a year.

You won the Practice Challenge this year! How did you motivate yourself to stick to such a rigorous practice routine?
I had to learn to make practice a fun thing, not a chore. I replayed the songs that needed to be worked on and they motivated me more once I got it right.

What do you like about Flourish?
I love how supportive and fun the teachers are. We have fun while learning a lot.

What else do you like to do?
I love to play Minecraft, read, dance, and code.
