ROCK STAR OF THE WEEK - VIOLA LAUFER!!!
Senior at Winema Early College High School
Drums, Keys and Vocals
Started at RiverCity Rock Star Academy in January 2017
When did you start playing music and why?
My interest in music sprouted when I was about 10 years old. I would play the drums on “Rock Band” and shortly after I got my first drum kit and keyboard. However, I didn't start drum lessons until I was 14 and I am now teaching myself piano and play the keys on some songs at RC.
What is your favorite song you've ever played at RiverCity?
My favorite song that I've played at RC would either have to be ‘Brick House’ by the Commodores or ‘Violet’ by Hole because all the stars were just like little fish.
What do you like about RiverCity?
One of my favorite things about RC is how fast it became my second home. I get along with all the teachers and students really well, and I've made some amazing friends. Most importantly though is the amazing V-Dog – the official rock dog for RC.
What are your favorite bands/artists right now?
I'm into so many types of music, but right now I mostly listen to older music like Queen, Nirvana, GnR, and AC/DC. Also 80’s pop and New Age rap.
What things do you like to do when you’re not at RiverCity?
Some things I like to do when I'm not at RC are learning new songs on the piano, hang out with my cat, watch the show Shameless, and go on night adventures.
