KASSIDY WALKER, BASSIST & SINGER

Which bands or choirs are you in?

I’m in Jazz I and Symphonic band where I play bass, but I also sing in Mixed Choir and play bass for the Performing and Men’s Choir as well.

How long have you been playing or singing?

I’ve been singing, playing bass, and even playing the piano for as long as I can remember. But I’ve been in band and choir ever since 6th grade and middle school.

Is it difficult to manage band and choir?

No, it’s not too hard to handle. Most of the time it’s pretty easy, actually, because I just have to practice and I enjoy practicing my pieces. Practicing singing is also pretty simple because you don’t even have to set up any instrument, so for the most part I’m able to handle them both pretty well.

What are your goals for your musical career in the future?

My main goal for a long time has been to be like my idol Esperanza Spalding because she sings while she plays the bass. The Latin style she sings in combines both of my passions, so I hope to get as good as her someday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RILEY ANDERSON, GUITARIST & SINGER

Which bands or choirs are you in? 

Currently I sing in Men’s choir, play the guitar in Jazz I, and I also was in the Once upon a Mattress play.

How long have you been playing or singing?

Ever since I was nine years old I have been playing the guitar and I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember.

Is it difficult to MANAGE band and choir?

The only thing that took up a lot of time for me was the play because we had rehearsal almost everyday after school until 10:00 PM sometimes. That took up a lot of my time. However, I still do find time to practice so that’s not as much of a hassle.

What are your goals for your musical career in the future?

Someone I really look up to as a musician is Ed Sheeran because he has such a unique voice and also plays the guitar, so one of my goals is to be somewhat like him someday. In terms of my personal plans, I’m going to perform as much as possible throughout the rest of high school. I’m even planning to continue performing this summer by playing on street corners in downtown Sandpoint.
