This weeks Featured Student is Evelyn DeVries.  Evelyn has been a violin student at Music of Oz for about one year.  She is eight years old and a second-grade student at St. Mary’s School in Crown Point.  Evelyn is a devoted student and practices regularly at home.  She says the best thing about playing violin is that she can move her fingers across the strings and make the music louder and louder!

Evelyn has an infectious smile that makes everyone around her smile too.  She has a wonderful sense of humor and often has a joke at the ready to tell her teacher when she comes for her lessons.

Evelyn is well-rounded.  Besides studying violin, she also is involved with gymnastics at Midwest in Crown Point.  Currently she is learning how to do a back handspring!  She also likes to sing and sometimes she makes up songs, some of which are about school.  In addition, she also is a former ballet student.  Evelyn’s favorite color is purple.  Her favorite food is bacon and her favorite restaurant is Rain Forest Cafe’.  When choosing a treat when she has Oz Bucks to spend, she always looks for the Twix candy bar.  Evelyn is a delightful, talented young lady and a joy to have as a student! ~Kathy Craig, violin teacher~
