Why couldn’t Mozart play his violin?
It was Baroque.
The joke above was shared by August Student of the Month, Jesse Hansen. Besides her witty jokes, this 15 year old can recite pi to 30 places (3.14159265359…okay, we give up!). She’s also into hiking, reading, writing, drawing, nerdy T.V. shows, anime, video games, and playing violin. And, she takes voice lessons at Harris Academy of the Arts.
In voice lessons, Jesse is learning how to create a scene around a song and incorporate acting with her singing as a way to emphasize the story. She showed what she’s learned in her performance at the Spring Student Recital (check out the videos below!). One of Jesse’s favorite performance memories is getting a hug from a random audience member after performing in a talent show in Wisconsin. Surely, this talented girl will receive many more random hugs in her lifetime!
