The Munson Family

The Munsons have been part of the Community Music School for 13 years, participating in various musical programs. All seven Munson children have studied or currently study piano with Catherine Walby, and the youngest is beginning his first year of lessons this fall. Six were in our Early Childhood Music program, and two studied cello with Roza Borisova.

Outside of LCMS, the Munson children also participate in their school orchestras and in the Appleton Boychoir. When not playing their instruments, the family enjoys being in nature and exploring together.
