Student Spotlight: Jordan Sutton


Jordan Sutton’s hair flashes with unique blue highlights, making her stand out from other juniors dressed in the same plain black uniform. From her distinctive hair to her drawing displayed near the art hall, it’s easy to see that Sutton is boldly artistic. Not only is she talented in the arts, she also is a dedicated and passionate musician.

NP: Where did your love of music come from?

JS: I started taking piano lessons before I even started kindergarten, and I’ve been playing ever since. I never got into really listening to music until the seventh grade–that’s when I really got my musical identity.

NP: How has your family impacted your musical inclination?

JS: My parents made me start taking the lessons. I started not liking my piano lessons a few years ago, but my parents kept me going. Last year I realized I could basically just teach myself the songs that I wanted to learn, so my parents allowed me to quit. I still play any chance I can get my fingers to the keys.

NP: Are you glad your parents made you take the piano lessons?

JS: Definitely. They say that piano is the basic instrument to learn because once you learn it, you are able to read music and pretty much play any other instrument. I started playing the guitar about a year and a half ago, and my prior knowledge with piano has helped me so much.

NP: What types of music do you enjoy?

JS: It really depends on what sort of mood I’m in, but my favorite genres are punk, alternative, and, of course, rock. In today’s music industry, everything sounds so alike to everything else. It’s hard to find artists that are unique and don’t sound like everybody else.
