Alyssa’s favorite part about playing an instrument is seeing how her music makes people feel. She has a musical family but was inspired to play the French horn by her middle school band. Alyssa says the Youth Symphony has improved her musical ability by teaching her new techniques and improving her articulation on the French horn.
