I started playing piano when I was about 5 years old, in the summer before kindergarten. I have studied with Dr. Kimi Kawashima at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah since early 2016. I love piano, and I’ve had the opportunity to give a number of solo recitals in recent years. Music as a whole has always been a part of my life: I sang in my middle school’s Honors Chorale, and I recently started leading the music ministry program for masses at my Catholic high school. I’ve also sung (and occasionally played the drums or piano) in my Presbyterian church’s praise band for the past several years. Outside of music, I enjoy all aspects of math and science, and I’m on my high school’s club ultimate team.
