People of Fenton: junior Aaron Toth

“Playing piano makes me happy. When you play other instruments by themselves it just sounds less complete. There’s a certain weight to put on each finger when you play the piano. A true professional pianist knows exactly how much weight to put on each finger, and consequently each note. Your fingers are like your band. You can’t just say ‘I’m going to put all of these fingers down at the same time with the same weight’ or else it just sounds flat. You have to know when to push things down and pull things back.” -junior Aaron Toth
