Girl Power

this magazine call Skirt! feature stories about locals in and around Memphis, Tennessee. It has a feature on my granddaughter called Girl Power.
"Whenever you have a difficult piece and you want to quit, don't, because that's how you know you're challenging yourself. A quote from Rebecca. Now is that not something coming from a 18 year old? (Believe me she has worked very hard to be successful in her music.)

It reads :
When Rebecca Butler picked up the French horn at age twelve, she didn't know that it would be her tool to success. In January of 2010, an audition won her a spot in the renowned Germantown Performing Arts Youth Symphony Orchestra. "After I finish putting my all into a piece of music and mastering it, I look forward to showing the audience my interpretation." Rebecca will be attending the University of Memphis in the fall and has received a performance-based scholarship. This summer, Rebecca is looking forward to teaching beginners to play the French horn.
