Valhalla Fifth Grader Receives The James Ranti Trumpet Scholarship
Wednesday, February 01, 2017
Trumpet teacher James Ranti was a fixture at the Music Conservatory of Westchester from September, 2002 until his passing this past December. At a memorial service held in January, many former students recounted the dedication and inspiration he gave to countless students over a lifetime of teaching. To celebrate this legacy, the Conservatory has named a scholarship in his honor.
Andrew Paucar, who began studying trumpet at the Conservatory in November, has been named the recipient of The James Ranti Trumpet Scholarship. The Valhalla fifth grader currently takes trumpet lessons with Conservatory faculty member David Hurd. He also takes Elementary Theory, and plays in the Latin Jazz band with his older brother Pablo, a saxophone student. Andrew attends fifth grade at the Kensico Elementary School in Valhalla. He is one of more than 80 dedicated students who receive need-based tuition assistance through the Conservatory’s Scholarship Program .
