I have played the violin for 15 years, starting from when I was in elementary school. I participated in the orchestras for middle and high school. In these orchestras, we participated in many competitions and festivals. When I was in college, I joined a community orchestra called the East County Youth Symphony. This is where I honed in on my skills and progressed towards a intermediate level. I received harder literature to read and played with some amazing musicians in concerts. Because of this orchestra, I was able to participate in a musical for Young Actors Theater. I played the violin for the play Les Miserables. After this, I joined the Greater San Diego Orchestra which allowed me to perform with solo artists and participate in film festivals. I had the opportunity to play for another musical for Young Actors Theater, this time Beauty and the Beast. Currently, I am a member of a mariachi group for the City Heights Music School. This group consists of musicians of various age and skill levels. We play in festivals and performances around the San Diego area.

Having worked with Cheyenne as a performer and educator I can say she is one of the most reliable people I know. She always brings all of her focus and energy to the task at hand and won't stop until it is done. In the few years I've known her I've been continually impressed by her progress as a musician, I'm excited to hear more about her in the near future!
