Students from Instrumental Influence participated in the Mid-America Music Association’s 58th annual Music Festival in St. Louis. These two young men received trophies at the competition. To receive a trophy they had to memorize two classic guitar pieces and get a 93 percent on each piece.


Leyton Burt, 9, left, played “Home on the Range” in fifth position and “Wabash Cannonball” in second position and received 100 percent on both.


Connlly Counter, 8, right, played “Rock in Blues” and “Shenandoah” and received 100 percent on “Rock in Blues” and a 99 percent on “Shenandoah.”


Ryan Stone is their guitar instructor. He has been teaching at Instrumental Influence for three years and he has been teaching Leyton for three years and Connlly for almost a year.
