March 2016 Student of the Month
Ladies and gentlemen, may we have your attention please – now introducing: Shelby Rohe, the March Student of the Month at Harris Academy of the Arts! Shelby is a 17-year-old senior in high school, and has been taking piano lessons for eight years and voice lessons for four! Her musical talents don’t stop there – Shelby also plays clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, ukulele, and various mallet instruments such as bells and xylophone (phew!). It’s a good thing Shelby plans on majoring in music at the University of Nebraska – Omaha!
Shelby’s talents and hobbies don’t end with music. She also loves acting, competitive speech, and writing poetry. Shelby is full of creativity, and her goals with music lessons are to improve her singing technique and become as advanced as possible in piano before moving to Omaha. One of her favorite winter recital memories is from her freshman year when she played Linus and Lucy, the theme from Peanuts.
It’s no surprise that her favorite classes in school are English, art and band. Her favorite songs include “Victorious” by Panic! at the Disco, “You in January” by The Wonder Years, “The Judge” by Twenty One Pilots, and “Cinderblock Garden” by All Time Low. Her favorite quote also comes from a song by All Time Low and lead singer Alex Gaskarth, “Maybe it’s not my weekend, but it’s gonna be my year.” You might catch Shelby relaxing and eating some chicken enchiladas (her favorite food) while watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, or reading Pride and Prejudice in her spare time – when she isn’t practicing, of course. 😉
LITTLE KNOWN FACT: Shelby is scared to death of baby corn – it really freaks her out!

….because he was Baroque!
Shelby is an awesome student at Harris Academy of the Arts. We are proud of all she has accomplished, and look forward to what she will accomplish in the future at UNO and beyond. Congratulations, Shelby!
