Student Spotlight: Roxanne Thomas
(By Karin Cravotta)

Roxanne Thomas has wanted to learn to play guitar since she was a teenager.

“I saved babysitting money and bought a guitar thinking it would be fun and easy to learn how to play. I was a big fan of The Eagles, and thought it would be great to play their songs at parties.” While she tried learning several times over the years, she confesses she was “never consistent.” Meanwhile, all three of her children learned to play on her guitar, and her son went on to study guitar and guitar theory at the University of Oregon.

“This instrument is like a member of the family, and really the only thing I still have from my childhood. While living in England, my daughter
accidentally left it on a train, and we thought it was gone for good. But someone found it and turned it in, and we got it back.” Forty years after her initial purchase, Roxanne decided the timing was right for her to finally pick the guitar back up. “I'm much less critical of myself at this point in my life.” Read more -->
