Karen S. Kim LA CRESCENTA -- The students in Michele Finn's special education class at Monte Vista Elementary School were busy shaking and rattling Native American instruments Friday afternoon during a jam session with 8-year-old award-winning flutist Evren Ozan. "Once I heard him playing flute, I'm like 'Oh, my God,"' said 10-year-old student Beau Thomason. "He's awesome, I swear. I want to be just like him." Thomason has been practicing Native American flute since he first heard Ozan's CD three months ago. "The fact that he's their age and this talented and plays with such energy is just inspiring to them and to me," said Finn, who has been learning to play the flute for the past year.

Over the past year, Kevin Kim took private flute lessons with two teachers, each of whom emphasized a different aspect of playing the instrument. Kevin studied flute in La Cañada Flintridge for many years with Myung Kim, who was known for working on the tone of her students’ notes. When Myung Kim died this fall, Kevin began taking lessons with Jim Walker, a well-known flutist who focuses more on having his students hit clear, correct notes. As a result of working with these two teachers with different styles, Kevin said his flute skills have improved markedly over the last few months.

According to science teacher Cathi Garcia, students from first to eighth grade presented science projects that included science methodology, oral presentation and an exhibit of the project.

Gary Moskowitz When Nevart Jamgotchian attends her music classes at Glendale Community College each week, she doesn't even think about being 50 years older than many of her classmates. Jamgotchian, 74, began playing the piano when she was 14, but her musical efforts trailed off when she opened a preschool in Eagle Rock about 30 years ago. Not until her husband's death in February 2002 did she consider playing the piano again, and by May of the same year, Jamgotchian had enrolled in a keyboard class at GCC. Two years later, she and her friend, 80-year-old flutist Seda Marootian, have become active members in the college's Music Club, and they practice together each week.

Janine Marnien It's not every day students at Monte Vista Elementary School get to hear the beating of a Taiko drum in the cafetorium. Or a Chinese proverb or Hawaiian legend.

Actors conveyed cultural concepts through skits, song and dance at a performance titled "Asian Pacific Tales." A skit performed about the legend of Hawaiian god Maui impressed third-grader Rachel Battles.

Third-grader Damian Kim was wearing a jester’s hat and a multicolored boa around his neck, and he was shaking with terror. “Liar, liar, pants on fire,” another student shouted at Damian, part of a rehearsal for a play to be performed by the first- through third-grade enrichment class at Edison Elementary School. The line may have elicited a fearful screech from the 9-year-old, but Damian was laughing inside, he said later. “That’s my line,” Damian said, explaining that he and the other students in an after-school program had written pieces of the script together, which teacher Kim Labinger had then compiled into a cohesive script.

Erica Miller has been performing for audiences since she appeared in her first-grade talent show at 6. She sang "People Will Say We're in Love" from the musical "Oklahoma." The parent teacher organization didn't want her to sing live, because they thought if she made a mistake, it would traumatize her for the rest of her life, Miller said. "All the other children were lip-syncing or doing little dances," she said. But the young New Jersey native proved them wrong, and today the 25-year-old soprano is preparing to sing in concert Saturday with the Burbank Philharmonic Orchestra at the Hall of Liberty in Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
