My name is Joshua Sjoen, and I am a graduate composition student at UNLV. I would like to give a big thanks to Mr. Harold Weller, Trustee of the Foundation to Assist Young Musicians for his generous donation of a brand new full size Kurzweil Electronic Keyboard! And also a big thanks to Mr. Bob Thompson, the original donor! If not for this generosity, I would have a fairly difficult time with my work. The keyboard is a big part of my life now, as it is the most important resource that I use while I compose. So far, I have only used it for composing, but as a musician trying to get my foot in the music scene here in Las Vegas, I see great potential in its uses for performance as well. Keyboards are just the most useful tool for any musician! Although I have had limited interaction with FAYM, I would love to be more involved with such a fantastic organization, where the love of music flourishes in the hearts of today's youth.
