Featuring Meritt Penner

Meritt Penner is a high school student at Sioux North in Sioux Lookout. He started music training shortly after he turned one-year old by correctly identifying “Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes” as the same tune as “London Bridge is Falling Down”. Piano lessons started at four years of age with violin beginning at seven. He’s had several teachers over the years including Thomas Hoppe and Jenn Bryan (both from Sioux Lookout) and now studies via zoom with Thomas Cosbey from the Thunder Bay Symphony orchestra. When he’s not practicing, he is biking (getting to school in both summer and winter), reading (he can finish a book in an afternoon) or swimming. He plans to get music high school credits from his upcoming exam.
