Simply Music Student – Ashton Rowe

Found in: Simply Music Community

Twelve-year-old Ashton Rowe’s path to musical success has not been without its bumps, but has clearly been paved with determination. Starting at age six with Marilyn van Roekel and continuing via Skype with Robin Keehn, in six years Ashton has worked his way through the complete Simply Music Piano curriculum as well as a plethora of other pieces and a wonderful range of compositions. In this chat with Laurie Richards, Ashton shows the maturity and capability that has served him so well as a musician. Here he plays for us The Spinning Song and also his composition The Curb, inspired by the movie “Up”.
