Trumpet Lessons

Brianna Dekle

 Brianna Rose Dekle, 11 years old, 6th grade

Although I recently switched to trumpet, I began taking piano lessons during elementary school.

My favorite instrument is trumpet because I can play it anywhere. I love being part of the band and connecting with other musicians.

My first memories in life are singing and dancing, so I guess you can say I’ve been inspired by music my entire life. From the time I was four years old, I wanted to create my own music.

What I enjoy the most about playing music is that each song tells a story, and I get to be part of that story.


My favorite experience so far on the trumpet has been joining the 7th/8th grade band.

Since attending a skull session in the fourth grade, I’ve wanted to be a member of The Ohio State University Marching Band.

Although I love sushi, my favorite food of all time is my mom’s seven layer lasagna.

My favorite places to go in Bexley are Zen Cha, the pool and Starbucks.

My favorite subjects in school are music and science.

If I could meet someone famous, I would pick Malala Yousafzai.

My favorite games to play with friends are escape rooms.

 Ashley Winer, 11 years old, 5th grade

I started taking voice lessons with Julie 2 1/2 years ago.

Voice is my favorite instrument.

Hello Dolly on Broadway inspired me to be a vocalist.

I enjoy working on music that challenges me to be the best singer I can be, mostly Broadway songs. I feel most comfortable while I am on a stage.


My favorite experience was when I was Young Nala in The Lion King Junior at the JCC.

My goal is to try to sing challenging pieces to the best of my ability and never give up.
