Trumpet Student – Khalif Winn

Khalif helping to put away all 70 instruments!

After three weeks in Tune Up Philly, fourth grader Khalif Winn has become one of our star students! His trumpet teacher, Dan Wright, says that he is completely focused all the time and by far the most advanced in the class. He walks through the hallways singing the choir songs, and chooses to stay late to help Ms. Delia put away all of the instruments. Last week he proudly played “Twinkle, Twinkle” on his trumpet for younger children in the after-care program.

When we first met Khalif, we weren’t sure he was right for the program. He wouldn’t sit still, he flitted around the classroom and liked to rough house with the other boys. He has certainly proven us wrong and we can’t wait to see him a year from now!
