STUDENT FEATURE
Name: Bram Schalken
Age: 13
Grade: 8
School: Cobb Middle School
Instrument: viola
Playing (and at FSM) since: 2013

Recently Bram received the exciting news that he was accepted as a violist into the Frisco Youth Symphony Orchestra. In the fall the symphony will begin its sophomore year, and for the first time, it will include middle school musicians in its ranks in addition to high school musicians.

To prepare for the grueling audition Bram worked for two months with his FSM teacher. The tryout included an etude, one solo piece (Bram selected Bourree by Handel), and as many scales as he could play in three minutes, plus a chromatic scale. "The etude was the hardest part of the audition because of the shifting that was required, and that was the first time I had ever done an etude," Bram said. "Ms. Sabrina is a great teacher. She's helped me get a better quality sound out of my playing."

Congratulations Bram from the entire FSM Team!
