Studying music has helped me with school because it teaches you to concentrate really well. I’m not really sure about my future, but I do know that math and music will definitely be a part of it.

Susan Lee began music lessons early after being inspired by her older sister’s practice sessions. Susan started playing piano at age 4; violin at 7. These days, she plays violin with SDYS and was recently selected as concertmistress (leader of first violins) for the upcoming 2015–2016 season. She’s also an accomplished pianist. “I think playing an instrument is important because it helps you appreciate art at a deeper level and be reflective,” Susan shares. “Playing music also helps to relieve stress or any negative emotions.” A student at Pacific Trails Middle School in Carmel Valley, Susan says that music has strengthened her academics. “Studying music has helped me with school because it teaches you to concentrate really well. I’m not really sure about my future, but I do know that math and music will definitely be a part of it.”
