Woodhull Elementary School band student Giovanni Giua showcased his musical talents when he recently performed along with nearly 100 of the top musicians in the county in the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association Division I Central Band. Giovanni was seated as third trumpet in the ensemble.

Giovanni began learning the trumpet in fourth grade and opted to perform at the New York State School Music Association Solo Festival last year, where he earned a top rating on his performance of a Level 1 solo. But when assembling its All-County performing ensembles, the the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association organization seeks to include students who are not only accomplished musicians but of exemplary character as well.
Woodhull music teacher Philip Tamberino was proud to recommend Giovanni to the Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association based on all of his qualities and was not surprised by the dedication and diligence he demonstrated in learning and performing the four additional pieces of music he needed to learn for the ensemble.
