Personal Project Night

After nearly a year of planning, research, practice, design and journaling, Zach presented the results of his ISZL Personal Project. Tenth grade students set up tables at ISZL in Hünenberg to showcase their efforts for families and friends.

Zach set up a table, displaying the alphorn bell alongside a laptop providing people with access to the learnalphorn.com website that he designed and built. He had many people ask about where he plays, how notes are played, how many notes can be played, the instrument creation and painting process and more.

Some students also performed on stage if screenplay compositions or music were part of their project. There were several performances, including a student who performed with one of her teachers and a Hungarian pop singing performance.

Zach was encouraged to play a song, so he played De Berner. He received several requests for an encore performance. His mentor, Ole Wasner, Kim, our friends and I encouraged him to share his music. So, he played a second time.

Mr. Wasner was inspired to creativity and asked Zach to play an intro to a jazz tune the following evening at the ISZL’s Got Talent show. This turned out to be a great idea, so stay tuned for another blog post on that event.

Congratulations to Zach for sticking to his goals and using his musical talents to God’s glory. He also obtained full marks on his product and research paper. And, he’s still enjoying the alphorn, playing and practicing for enjoyment.
