|Jake Thibert wins Fortissimo Award|
Jan 29, 2016
Piano student Jake Thibert has been awarded the Fortissimo Award for January 2016. "Jake is a motivated pianist who challenges himself constantly. He is able to play with sensitivity and control beyond his years and far beyond the time he has been studying piano. I am so proud of Jake and look forward to seeing the amazing musician and person he is becoming", says Julie Hanney, Jake's teacher.
Dillon Schneider, Executive Director says, "Jake began in one of our beginning group piano classes, and after 15 weeks transitioned into private piano lessons. He is a hard worker and we're excited to discover where Jake's talent and enthusiasm for music take him." Along with an award certificate, Jake received $100 scholarship towards his private lessons and goody bags from award sponsors Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake Pizza, Cuppa Yo and Cascade School of Music. Jake and subsequent award winners are also the only students eligible for a $1000 award to be given out at The Tower Theatre during Crescendo Bendo in June 2016.
