Congratulations to Nate on being selected as our
May Student of the Month!
This month we are celebrating the hard work of Nathan DeVore. Nate is a guitarist studying privately with Mark Catalano. He is also a member of the band Pillow Fight.
Nate started guitar lessons as a beginner in May of 2020, and now, within just one year, he's preparing to take the stage for the first time as a member of a band at Virtual Showcase III. Going from playing an instrument alone to being part of an ensemble can be both scary and exhilarating, but whatever reservations Nate may have, he doesn't let them show.
In rehearsals Nate is patient, focused, and attentive. He is also a team player, working with his bandmates and his band coach to make the whole better. Nate plays a very vital role in the song his band is preparing by starting the song off by himself. Essentially the entire song hinges on his part, and yet, he steps up every time and plays his parts strong. Then, when it's time to listen to how everyone can improve, Nate quickly becomes quiet and listens intently. Each time the band ran their song in the last rehearsal, it got better and better.
Congratulations, Nate! We honor your hard work and courage and can't wait to see Pillow Fight rock the stage on June 12.
