Congratulations to PCM’s July 2017 Student of the Month!

Beginning his musical journey with piano lessons at age 5, Michael Rodriguez has built a long-lasting relationship with music. In fact, Michael says that he can’t remember when he first fell in love with music, since he’s been playing for 10 years. His favorite genres are classical and pop, and his favorite piece is “All of Me” by Jon Schmidt. Someday, Michael hopes to make music his career!

Michael first came to PCM about 2 years ago, when his former teacher told him about the programming available here. He says that his favorite part of PCM is getting to work with other musicians and having the opportunity to learn how to make music with them. If he could give any advice to a new musician, Michael would say “Always listen to your teacher, and never give up or stop practicing!”

One fun fact about Michael is that he also likes to draw, and loves to draw things from nature.
