Eduardo studies with Ms. Julie Koenig at Flourish. He just completed 8th grade at Chappelow Arts Magnet School, and will start at Greeley Central High School this fall.
Eduardo is one of our longest-standing students, and was also featured in 2018! If you’d like to read that interview, click here: STUDENT SPOTLIGHT – EDUARDO ALFARO.
Eduardo recently traveled to Wyoming to film Packing the West, an educational series by Western Writers of America!
I have been taking piano since I was 10, at a place called Piano and Guitar Institute. This is where I started to learn about the piano and about chords and songs. When I turned 11, I moved to Flourish Music Academy. I started taking voice when I was in 3rd grade (when I joined piano), but started at Flourish in 5th grade. Then, I learned more about voice, and how to control my voice going from chest voice (low parts) to head voice (high parts).
Something I love about piano is that it has helped me learn music way faster, like when I was learning a song on guitar for filming with Western Writers of America. I used to sight-read the music on the piano, then hear what it sounded like, then start to put the song together on the piano. Some things that I love about singing are that it activates my imagination, and it also helps me focus more. When I do schoolwork or practice my lines for anything, I always listen to music. I can let my brain focus, but at the same time let out another version of myself that just loves to dance and work at the same time.
I loved acting with the Western Writers of America! It was super fun and I know I couldn’t do it without my teacher, Julie Koenig, who helped me learn a song for the show. My favorite parts of filming were when I was working with people who became my friends, and when I got to play the guitar.
The things that I like about Flourish are that I can be who I like to be, which is a musician. I also like going to the recitals and seeing the other students perform. It’s just so fun and I like it so much.
Some other things that I like to do are playing sports like soccer basketball and baseball. I also like to play video games.
