Aleksa Viedas is 12 years old, and has been playing the violin for about 3 years. She attends K. O. Knudson middle school. She has been in a violins for kids program called FAYM since she was in the middle of 4th grade. Aleksa has lately joined the YAO orchestra to advance on the violin. She has learned to love music and she wishes to continue on the violin. As she plans on going into the medical field, she does not plan on leaving music behind. She states, “It always takes a little push in the beginning, then the rest is a story. I am making mine worth telling.” Music has given Aleksa so many great opportunities and will do wonders to the future that lies up ahead.
