Young Musician from Woking Honoured by Conservatory Canada

Local student, Jayna Dreger, 15, of Woking, was recently honoured by Conservatory Canada, receiving a Medal of Excellence for scoring 100% in her Music Theory 3 written exam, the highest mark in Alberta.

Jayna is currently a Grade 11 student at The Centre for Learning@HOME, a home-education organization based in Okotoks. She is a self-described 'high-achiever' and loves learning, achieving a 100% mark on her Music Theory 2, about four years ago. 

Dreger started learning piano with the Music for Young Children program at age four, moving to private piano lessons at age seven, with Carmen Bartel of Grande Prairie. She performs at the Grande Prairie Music Festival every spring, and will be performing the Raindrop Prelude and The First Noel at a friends and family recital in late December. 

Music Theory 3 teaches students the composition of songs, and it the course is very competitive, with many other talented students. Jayna worked on her theory for approximately two years before taking the exam. 

In the future, she hopes to play music in public places, such as restaurants and hotel lobbies, especially if they have a grand piano, and events such as weddings. Outside of music she enjoys horse riding and training her three year old German Shepherd. 

Congratulations, Jayna, from all at Saddle Hills County! We look forward to seeing many more great things from you in the future.
