robertRobert Alejo, 3rd Grade, Viola

How long have you been playing the viola at HOLA?

I’ve been playing for 3 years.

Why do you like coming to HOLA?

They teach us how to play the viola and other instruments.

Is your favorite instrument the viola?

Yes. I like it because it’s a little taller than the violin.

Do you want to learn how to play any other instruments?

I want to learn the trombone because you get to use the slide and I think that’s cool.

What do you do when you’re not at HOLA?

On Mondays and Thursdays after HOLA my Dad takes me to soccer practice.

What’s your favorite movie?

I like the movie Johnny English. It’s about an agent and I like it because it’s funny.
