Meet 4-yr-old Paxten, who plays ukulele & piano, and sings with her music! Paxten is an aspiring songwriter who, at the age of 4, has already written a couple of big hits in our music community. One of her original songs is called “Giddy Up”, which tells the story of her favorite horses and very special places in her life (she likes this song the most). Although she is very self-motivated and creative with her songwriting, Paxten is also influenced by her favorite artist, Grace VanderWaal, who she saw win “America’s Got Talent” in 2016.
When asked what she likes most about music lessons, Paxten says that she likes cheering her friends on at recitals (what a big heart!) and simply practicing her ukulele, which both make her feel very happy. She likes to practice her music when she is camping, and also when family comes over to visit with her love for performing. Outside of music, Paxten enjoys bike riding, skiing, and camping. And when she grows up, she wants to be a “bike riding musician”, teaching other kids how to play music! She believes that music helps to change the world by making people dance.
According to her instructor Katie, Paxten is able to write songs quickly based on a new idea learned in a lesson. Once Paxten has an idea, Katie says that her “stream of consciousness” takes over from there to make it into a song. Keep up the great work Paxten! We are excited to see the great things to come with your music!
