Gabby Perez, an eighth-grader at Crystal Middle School, lives in a music-loving household.
“It’s in my genes,” she said at the recent Fairfield-Suisun School District Band Festival, the second event in a series of four showcasing student musicians.
Gabby began playing the flute last year at school. She would have picked up the flute sooner had it been available to her at school, she said.
“I would like to have more experience,” she said of playing the instrument, which she practices daily.
